How to hack your student move
Moving as a student may seem daunting in the beginning as it could be your first move alone as an adult. However, these moving tips should help you hack your move like a pro.
- Will you live in the dorms or off-campus?: This is an important aspect of your move to consider as it will determine what items you need to pack. Most universities have dorm accommodation facilities but the demand is usually higher than the supply.
- What will you pack?: Depending on where you plan to live, the essentials that you pack may vary. For example, you may not need to carry a fridge or dishwasher to a dorm room while an unfurnished apartment will need such items.
- Moving help: Everybody will need some help when they are moving, no matter the size of their move. Your student move is considered small, but you should plan to ask your friends and family for all the help they can give. Furthermore, there are tons of student moving companies out there that you should consider talking to.

How to hire a professional moving company
Here are some tips to help you as you look to hire the best professional moving company for your needs.
- Do some initial screening: Armed with a list of local moving companies which you can find in phone book listings as well as online, do some background research. Check credible customer review platforms like the BBB. Furthermore, check for affiliations with professional bodies like AMSA which point to stringent control in their service offering.
- Whittle down your list: After the initial screening, whittle your list down to three companies with the best reviews and recommendations. Keeping your list lean and mean will help you make a good choice after doing the next step.
- Call for estimates: Professional moving companies must prepare a moving estimate for you. This helps to provide you with a cost of moving that should be accurate and allow you to budget for your move. Needless to say, pick the company that offers the best rates against their services.
