Still not sure where to attend college? Have you changed your major and you need a new university? Or has your family relocated to Michigan and you need a new university near home? You can consider joining Eastern Michigan University (EMU). EMU is a co-educational public university found in Ypsilanti in the state of Michigan, US. It offers over 200 rigorous programs from undergraduate to doctoral levels. Whether you are moving to EMU for the first time, or you are moving out after completing your program, moving with lots of goods is a daunting task. Finding a professional mover can relieve you from much hassle. A-1 Auto Transport offers full service moving to or from EMU, whether it is a long-distance move, a move from state to state, coast to coast, internationally, or just within the town or country.
Tips on how to make moving to or from EMU easier
Here are key tips that you should consider before, during and after moving in.
- Make a tour to the university before you move: Visiting EMU prior to your reporting date can be costly. However, if you can manage to make a physical visit earlier, it can help you with your preparations. Campus tours around EMU are scheduled Monday to Thursday in the mornings and afternoons, mornings on Friday and specific Saturdays at 10 a.m., while summer tour options may vary. You are allowed to talk to the Admission staff and walk around the campus for three hours. You can visit residence apartment and dorms and see their conditions and facilities available. If you can’t tour the campus, search for housing options online.
- Sell, reduce or recycle: You can reduce your household goods by donating, selling or tossing what you don’t need. You may need your pool table but carrying it may take time and may be costly. Remember moving some bigger items especially from state to state may attract some taxation.
- Start packing as soon as possible: Once you have confirmed your moving dates and decided on what to carry, get your moving boxes ready and start packing. Pack the most essential items first. If you are moving during summer, don’t pack winter gear. You may not need them anytime soon. Pack a few moving boxes each day to make the process manageable and less overwhelming. Label the boxes and put related items together, from hardware to furniture, so that everything stays organized. Also utilize the available spaces and utility boxes.
- Secure your heirlooms and valuables: You don’t want to trust people with your expensive family heirlooms or precious TV or computer. Keep them safe and put them in a place where you can monitor them easily.
- Seek help from friends or professional movers: Depending on the cost of moving, you can decide to move your goods on your own or hire a mover. If you decide to go solo, seek help from friends or neighbors to help you load your truck or unpack when you arrive. You can also hire a professional auto transport company to do the moving for you.
Why you need a professional moving company for your EMU move
Seeking services from a professional mover comes with many advantages. Here are a few:
- They help you get the documents that assure you of a smooth move especially if you are moving from state to state or internationally.
- They are knowledgeable of how to move any kind of household goods.
- They have experience and necessary equipment to handle your goods.
- It may be cheaper and safer in the end; your goods are covered and you can get favourable quotes.
