All these are the exciting prospects of moving, but moving day also comes with its fair share of stress if not handled right.

Our company has been moving students like you all across Michigan and the entire country with great success, therefore your move will be no different. We will make it our business to relocate you with the greatest ease.
How to have a stress free student move
It is possible to have a stress free student move by following these moving tips.
- Consider the size of your move: It is important to take inventory of the items you will be moving with. This would be a great time to get rid of items that just take up precious space, by trashing, selling or donating them.
- Pack like a pro: Make your packing systematic by placing items from different rooms in different boxes. Furthermore, you can write a detailed description of what are in each box and color code them for easier unpacking.
- Get familiar with your new space: Trying to determine the way your new space will be set up is important; it allows you to visualize where different items will be placed. This will also help you settle in psychologically.
Benefits of using a professional moving company
A professional moving company is able to take the stress out of any sized move. Below are some benefits of using their services.
- For peace of mind. As mentioned earlier, moving day can be stressful especially if you are handling everything by yourself. When you hire a professional moving company, they will provide you with all the moving help you need for a stress-free move.
- For convenience: It is more convenient to have a professional mover handle the sweaty, tedious and involving process of moving as you handle other aspects connected to the move.
- For personal safety: Moving involves heavy lifting which poses serious risk of injury to you if done wrong. Professional moving companies train their moving crews to lift heavy items the right way with reduced risk of injury.
How to find a professional moving company
There are as many scams out there as there are professional moving companies. Here are some ways to avoid the scams.
- Experience: How long has the company been in existence? A company with a track record that can be traced back a good number of years is more reliable than one that has no track record.
- Credentials: A professional mover should have proper licensing and insurance to prove that it is legit. An interstate mover should be issued with a unique US DOT number by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association which you can verify on their website .
- Moving inventory: A professional mover will take inventory of your move before issuing you with a moving estimate. If the mover you contact does not offer moving inventory in their estimate process, you should ditch them.
