Tips on how to make moving to or from GVSU easier
Are you looking for some tips on how to move to or from GVSU? Here are some of the tips that will be useful to you.
- Prepare early: Getting prepared well and planning ahead is a half job done. Get information about housing options at GVSU and decide well in advance whether to live on-campus or off-campus. Know the size of your apartment, number of roommates and the facilities offered. Come up with a rough budget. How much are you willing to spend? Get quotes from movers if you decide to move and compare rates. Turn your ideas into tasks and timeframes. Draft a timetable and stick to it.
- Start packing: Toss out, sell or donate some of your goods. Imagine carrying that heavy pool table only to end up with no space to put it or carrying that heavy furniture and ending up not using it. Park extremely essential goods because the less you have, the less the cost of your relocation. Start your parking by sorting your items. Get your moving boxes and other packing materials and start packing! When arranging your items, start with what you don’t use often, and finish with essential items that you use daily so that they can stay at the top and be easily accessible. Label every single box and write down contents of each box. Pack every item carefully especially the fragile and valuable ones and wrap them properly to ensure their safety.
- Storage: You can consider renting a storage unit for extra space or if you need to transport your items well in advance.
- Liaise with a moving company: Moving can be an amazing but also stressful experience. However, if you hire a reliable auto transport company, the entire process becomes easier.
