Moving is a process that is quite involving and offers a chance for a new start in a new city or country. However, for most people, moving presents a challenge as they have never really mastered it. Regardless of these daunting statistics, Americans tend to move a lot in their entire lifetime. Students make up a huge statistic of the moving masses in America.

How to achieve a seamless student move
Moving does not have to be a stressful or difficult time for you as you prepare for your university relocation. If you take these tips into consideration, you are well on your way to achieving a seamless move.
- Gather moving tools and supplies early: Moving requires that you have various tools and supplies in order to have a seamless process. You may have to buy or hire some of these items, therefore get a head start on your move to prevent a last-minute rush.
- Start packing early: Packing is one of the most time-consuming tasks of moving. To prevent getting bogged down by packing, start as early as possible by packing away items like extra shoes, beddings and so on.
- Get help: Enlist the help of friends and family to take some of the load off your mind. For an even less stressful move, you should consider contracting a professional moving company.
Advantages of hiring a professional moving company
Professional moving companies can set you back quite a bit, but the benefits of hiring them far outweigh any disadvantages. Here are our top picks of the benefits.
- Accountability: A professional moving company will take responsibility for all your items during your move and will work to ensure that everything arrives on time and in the same condition it left. This will take a load off your mind as you will have less to worry about.
- Reliability: Moving with friends may be the cheaper option but it fails when it comes to reliability. You can count on a professional moving company to deliver exactly what they said they would.
- Efficiency: You can be sure that a professional moving crew will be more adept at handling bulky furniture as well as heavy boxes. Furthermore, they are trained in the most efficient ways to complete your move.
How to find the best professional moving company
Before settling on a professional moving company, you should be able to assess it carefully. Here are some aspects that should not pass your rigorous assessment.
Where are they located?
Look for a company that is locally based. Local moving companies have the ability to offer you certain services easily and they know the location better than other distant movers.
Do they have a physical address?
Ensure that the company has a physical address. You can find out by checking online directories. Ensure that you go a step further to visit this location to ensure that they are not operating from a residential address.
Do they have many customer complaints?
You can find out what past customers have to say about service from the company in the past. Observe if you can see a thread of complaints and stay away from such companies. Chances that they will botch your move too are pretty high.
