Moving is a process that has long been termed as daunting. Despite this, in America alone, at least 46 million people move annually, relocating both locally and long-distance. Furthermore, more ladies than men take on the daunting task of moving each year! Moreover, moving is a seasonal process especially for students as they relocate to join or leave an institution of higher learning such as the Northern Marianas College. Students tend to move en masse during the fall season. Therefore, it is important that you get the process right since you will be moving during a high moving season. At A1 Auto Transport Inc, we have been in the business of moving families, students and businesses all over the United States Commonwealth as well as the United States itself with great success. You can count on us to have a super smooth process if you follow our free moving tips as we give them here.
Tips to smooth student relocation
Moving as a student may seem daunting due to the fact that it may be your first individual move as an adult. However, we have come up with a few moving tips to help make the transition easier for you.
- Source for packing materials early: You will need lots of moving boxes and supplies to pack your items in comfortably. Look for affordable or even free moving boxes from shops such as furniture, liquor and grocery stores. They will be glad to give you these for free.
- Start packing early: The early bird adage fits in very well during moving. Packing is one of the tasks that you can begin weeks before your moving day. Be sure to pack as early as possible, organizing your items from different rooms into separate boxes.
- Label and number your boxes: As you continue packing, ensure that you label each of the boxes very clearly. When you find that one room has more than one box, be sure to use a clear numbering system in order to avoid any mix-up or confusion during unpacking.
Why you should consider hiring a professional moving company
Moving is a process which is best handled by professional movers since they have the know-how. In addition, there are other advantages tied to using professional movers such as;
- The right equipment: Moving requires the right equipment to allow for a smoother and faster process. Professional movers over time have a collection of the correct equipment for any kind of move. These include moving dollies, hoisting straps, specialized trucks and so on.
- There’s less risk involved: During moving, anything can happen to you or your belongings especially when handled by inexperienced hands. To avoid this, professional movers come in handy since they have all the know-how and techniques of packing, hoisting and lifting without a high risk of injury to self or your items.
How to find the best moving company
There are tons of moving companies out there, but not all of them will be able to offer you the services you need. Here are some ways to find the best student moving company.
- The name: Most moving companies will have a generic name, which does not say much about their offering. Some specialized movers however will have a tag in their name which will point to the kind of moving they do. Look for movers who have a special tag for student moving in their names.
- Their length of operation: Professional movers have been in the moving industry for a long time; for example, we have been around for over twenty years! Look out for movers who have been around long enough, as they come with valuable experience.
