How to achieve a smooth student move
You can move as a student with very little stress if you follow these moving tips we have used over the years.
- Purge: Go through your items and get rid of any clutter or items that you no longer need. These could be clothes, shoes, electronic gadgets, books and anything else that you have not used in about 6 months.
- Create several piles: From your purged items created three different piles; one to sell, another to donate and another one to trash. Once you categorize your clutter this way, do not be tempted to take back any of the items you have set aside.
- Get rid of the clutter: Organize a garage sale or post your items for sale on different online selling sites. Furthermore, you can call any non-profit organizations near you to collect the items to donate; they will be happy to oblige you. As for the trash, bin it immediately!
Why you should hire a professional moving company
Moving is a process which requires you to get all the help you can. Here are some valid reasons why.
- Professional inventory services: A professional mover is able to take professional inventory of your items with great ease. Not only will this save you some time, it will also ensure that your items are accounted for during the move.
- Safety of your items: Professional moving companies are fully insured, and also provide insurance cover to your items during the move. This means that in case of any damage or loss of your items, you will be indemnified by the mover.
- Free your time: Moving is a tedious and involving process which can tie you up for days on end. When you outsource your move to a professional mover, you will be able to focus on other facets of the move that the mover cannot do like changing of address, booking flights and so on.
