How to have a stress-free move as a student
You can actually achieve a stress-free student move if you take into consideration these moving tips that we shall give you below.
- Check the school’s requirements: Different colleges and universities have different requirements for you to abide by. Be sure to check these to be sure that you have filled all the necessary forms and paid all the due bills before you can get a dorm room.
- Pack for the season: To avoid packing too many items, or items you will not need, be sure to carry correct clothing and shoes for the first season. You can plan to swap out clothes from home as the season changes or to buy what you will need later.
- Invest in quality: Rather than spending less on carton boxes for moving, invest in plastic crates which can double up as storage. Furthermore, these crates can be used when you need to move again.
Benefits of hiring a professional moving company
Moving with a professional mover has its benefits which are;
- Saves you time: Moving is a time-consuming project which can take all day into the night. Professional movers have learned how to expedite the moving processes to ensure that you are moved in good time.
- Relieves moving stress: Moving, by any means, is a stressful process, therefore if you can have someone else take it on, it will take a load off your mind. Professional movers are your best bet because their experience will ensure that you do not worry about your belongings.
- Frees up your time: Once you contract a moving company to take care of your move, you can focus on doing other tasks like setting up your new mailing address or applying for a driver’s license for the new state you are moving to.
How to find a professional moving company
Finding a professional moving company can be an uphill task especially since there are so many moving companies out there. Here are a few tips to help you settle on the best moving company.
- Check their physical address: In order to be sure that a company is legitimate, find out if they have a physical address. Furthermore, take an extra step to visit this location just to verify that it truly does exist. This is one sure way to avoid scammers.
- Get estimates: Request at least three moving companies for moving estimates. Be wary of companies that offer to give an estimate over the phone as these are rarely accurate. Insist on an in-person estimate. Additionally, if an estimate is too cheap, you might want to take a step back and go through the costs and services with a fine toothed comb to avoid fine print that will allow other costs to creep in later.
- Follow your gut: Make a decision based on the top two steps and finally by listening to your gut. If you cannot place a finger on why you feel uneasy about signing on a moving company even if they tick all the boxes, you should drop them.
