Moving To Or From Morehead State University
Moving is an exciting time for anyone, especially for a student. It gives you an opportunity to have a fresh start, make new connections and basically experience life in a new place. However, for most people, moving has proved to be a daunting task that they are yet to master despite the number of times they have had to move. As you approach your move to or from Morehead State University, you may be faced with the daunting task of getting everything organized and ready for the day of moving. However, we can assure you that moving is not as difficult as it has been made out to be, if you follow the tips and advice that we will be sharing with you here. We at A1 Auto Transport Inc believe that our two decades in the moving industry have given us valuable insights to help you achieve a smooth move wherever you are moving to or from, even right here in Kentucky.
Tips for a smoother student move
Moving as a student can be made easier if you follow these tips and advice we have used over the years.
- Prep early: As soon as you realize you need to move, you should begin to prepare. This should be at least 8 weeks before your move. Early preparation includes gathering packing supplies such as boxes, tape, markers and so on.
- Pack early: Packing is a tedious and repetitive task, but you can reduce it by packing in batches. You could begin by packing items that you will not need any time soon before your move.
- Ask for help: Enlist the help of your friends and family for tasks such as packing and loading the truck on the actual day of moving. Alternatively, you could consider contracting professional moving help.
Why should you consider hiring a professional moving company?
Moving is an intricate process which is best left to the experts if you want to have a seamless experience. Besides that, here are some more reasons why you should consider using the services of a professional moving company.
- Experience: Most professional moving companies have many years experience in the moving industry which makes them easier to trust with your valued items. Experience means that they have handled all kinds of moving obstacles and learned how to overcome them.
- Reliability: Once you contract a moving company to handle your move, you can be sure that they will finish what they begun. Furthermore, you can rely on them to offer all the services that you agreed on.

How to find the best student moving company
Looking for a moving company can seem like a daunting task, especially since this may be the first time you are doing it. Follow these simple tips to make your work easier.
- Find out if they are licensed and insured: A professional interstate mover is licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation and issued with a unique USDOT number which you can verify here. Furthermore, you can check the local professional moving company’s details with the FMCSA’s contacts database.
- Check their track record: The most credible source for this information is found on the Better Business Bureau listings. It is wise to stick to a company that has a good and consistent ranking with the BBB. However, if a company is not listed with the BBB, you might want to give it a wide berth.
- Watch out for any ‘red flags’: Some red flags include asking for a huge deposit upfront before the move, unprofessional behavior such as being too forward especially during the estimate process, poor phone etiquette. Avoid such companies as they are bound to give you a hard time.
