Moving To Or From Eastern Illinois University (EIU)
Moving to a new residence is an exciting activity but without proper preparation, it can turn out to be a stressful one. This is attributable to the fact that the moving process involves numerous activities such as deciding the destination and preparing it, packing, loading and transportation of your belongings. In most cases, such activities can overwhelm you and that is why we recommend finding a qualified university mover such as A-1 Auto Transport Inc., to offer you the necessary support needed for a seamless university move. If you have a forthcoming university move, this article is the right resource for you –it contains insights on how to move with ease.
How to make a stress-free university move
Making a stress-free university move is the dream of every student. Nevertheless, such a dream is never actualized by most students especially those who do not take enough time to prepare for the move. In this section, we cover a few tips to help you get ready for your next university move.
- Come up with an actionable plan. In this plan, consider aspects such as the day of the move, what to carry, how to move etc.
- Ensure that you keep track of all your items. A checklist will do in this case –it will help you know what you have packed and where, as well as help you at the unloading and unpacking stage to determine whether your items have all arrived.
- Dispose and leave some items. The more luggage you carry, the higher the cost as well as the chances of stress of moving a big load. If you have items you no longer need, dispose them and consider hiring a storage space for the not-so-important ones.
- Have a budget for the entire move.
- Hire a moving company specialized in university moves to work with you the entire period.
Reasons why hiring a professional university mover is important
It is not recommendable to engage in a Do-It-Yourself move as it can be challenging. Hiring a professional moving company for a university move comes with many benefits such as:
- You move peacefully because such companies are experienced and understand what it takes to move with ease.

- Save on time and energy: professional moving companies are punctual and they take over the whole process ensuring that you do not have to do a thing.
