Moving is considered a busy and stressful time for most individuals. Despite this, it is also an exciting time in the life of any individual because it points at the chance for a new beginning. Most folks in America move for two main reasons, one being to have an easier commute to work, and the other being to move into a new and better neighborhood. As you can see, moving truly points to new beginnings just as your move to or from Kent State University at Salem is for you. Students tend to move for two common reasons; to join a university or to leave the university dorms at the end of their undergraduate studies. Our moving company, A1 Auto Transport Inc, has been in the business of moving folks and students just like you in Ohio and the rest of the country with great ease. You can therefore rest assured that your move with us will not be stressful but it will go smoothly.
How to move stress-free as a student
Moving is not a task for the faint-hearted. However, you can be sure that our moving tips will afford you a stress-free move into campus.
- Plan ahead: Moving needs lots of planning in order to avoid a last-minute rush which just leads to stress. Plan how you will move; will it be a DIY or professionally assisted move? Will you need moving storage? How will you travel to your new home? All these factors need to be planned right from the beginning.
- Ask for help: Once you decide how you will move, it is wise to ask for help. Whether you are doing a DIY move or not, moving help comes in handy for a stress-free move. Contact friends and family and you will be surprised how willing they will be to assist you.
- Hire a professional moving company early: If you have decided to use professional moving services, it is wise that you contract one as early as you can. In fact, ensure that you have locked down a mover at least a month to your moving day.
The importance of hiring a professional moving company
Hiring a professional moving company for a student move, for some, seems like a farfetched notion. However, you can be sure that it has its benefits, some of which are outlined below.
- Experience: Professional movers have great experience in the moving industry. Nothing can catch them by surprise, and they are able to move under all kinds of difficult conditions. Furthermore, since they are experienced, they are more trustworthy with your items.
- No heavy lifting for you: After packing, heavy lifting is the next most involving and tedious task in moving. When you hire professional movers, they will ensure that you have all the moving labor that you need such that you will not have to raise a finger.
How to hire a professional moving company
Having established that a professional mover is best placed to handle your move, here are some steps to observe as you look for the best moving company.
- Search locally: A local mover is best placed to handle your move without any hitches. This is due to their proximity to your current location. Moreover, they have better knowledge of the locality meaning they will provide better service.
- Get recommendations: Professional moving companies that give good service will always get good recommendations. Ask your friends and family for such recommendations. Remember to also ask the local realtors to give you their own recommendations.
