Tips on how to make moving to or from ECU easier
Moving is stressful especially when you are moving to a new place. Here are tips that will make your move exciting.
- Get all the move-in details: Know your specific check-in time and move-in location which are usually sent to you by email. Internalize all the move-in details and stick to them. Know your room and check the size and utilities to help you prepare well.
- Plan and prepare ahead: sWhether you are moving by yourself or hiring a mover, it is important to prepare well and plan ahead. The plan starts with booking a dorm or apartment. Assembling packing materials such as moving boxes, bubble wrap and tape should be part of the preparations. You can get cheap or free moving boxes from stores by placing an order at least two weeks before you start packing.
- Pack wisely: Pack as lightly as possible to minimize the number of moving boxes. Don’t buy now what you can buy later. Don’t carry what you don’t need. Pack only essential items. The smaller the luggage, the less moving cost and the smoother your move.
- Seek labor from family and friends: Get help from your family and close friends to make your move smoother. They will help you in packing and loading. You can move with some family or close friends to your location so that they can help you unpack and move your boxes around.
- Liaise with a professional mover: As much as your family and friends can offer help, they may not have necessary equipment for heavy lifting. They may also lack packing and lifting skills. Get help from professional movers.
