When it comes to going to a university, there are many options all across the globe in multiple countries. Some students travel far just to further their education. Students also do study abroad programs that some universities have. This allows students to explore and appreciate other cultures, learn new languages, and gain a greater understanding of the world. The number of students who have moved overseas anywhere on the globe is about 5.3 million (“International Students” 2020). However, there can be challenges involved with moving from a place you call home to moving to a whole other country that’s basically a stranger.
It can be scary at times. However, when it comes to the services A-1 Auto Transport has, it makes the move easier and can make the transition better as well. Typically, students who move internationally come from the countries China, South Korea, United States, India, France, and many others, While some do decide to dorm on campus, some decide to get their own apartment for the years that they are here. That can eliminate having to dorm with roommates and now being able to just worry about yourself. Moving completely into an apartment is simple with the services that A-1 Auto Transport has.
When it comes to moving overseas, there are two options that the company has which is moving from port to port or from door to door. The port to port option is when the mover is responsible to take the things to the port and then from the port, take it to their new home. With the door to door option, everything from the previous home is moved right to the doorstep of the new home. This makes it especially easy for a college student when it is just that person alone and no one else to help them. This service also allows the movement of cars and other valuables that makes a place feel like home. Some people are most comfortable with driving their own cars and not having to get used to a whole different car. It is possible to bring the car overseas in one of three ways:
with a Ro/Ro ship, a container or air freight. With college students, the best option would be the Ro/Ro ship as the cost is cheaper compared to the other two options. This way of transportation ensures that the car is transported to the destination safely with no issues. Being able to drive a comfortable and well-known car can make the transfer to a new country easier. Not only does a car make the transfer easier, but also having all of your valuables and things that make a place a home can do this as well. It is easy for students to get homesick being away for years at a time. Of course, there are breaks in between where students can go back home, but at some point, they are going to have to come back.
Having those valuables can make students less homesick. A-1 Auto Transport makes sure that those valuables get to their destination safely and with no trouble. Although there is so much good that comes with moving overseas and how simple this company makes the move, cost is the biggest part of it all. Compared to other moving companies that do international moves, they are the most affordable. The cost for moving a 2 bedroom home/apartment from Las Vegas to Japan is at most $6,300. However, if the student is moving by themselves and has only their bedroom to move from with furniture, the cost can easily be less than that. For college students, this move is very affordable. Also, it makes it to where students don’t have to start completely over.
They can bring their life with them without having to start a new one. Not only that, but the time it takes to fully move from country to country with the company is not long at all. Typically, the amount of time it takes for people to move internationally is around fifty-one days which is about seven weeks and a half (“How Long Does It Take to Move Internationally?” 2015). However, the time it takes for A-1 Auto Transport to do the same move internationally is around four to six weeks. So overall, things can be moved from the old home to the new one in good time which is perfect for students. Students who move away from their homes and families are sometimes clueless of what to do next.
They may come into the country that they moved to not knowing what to do next such as getting a job and how to rent a home for themselves. Apart from the transporting services that A-1 Auto Transport has, they also give great detail in how to find these things. Some countries are harder to find jobs in than others. The company makes sure to mention these things and really help the customers get acquainted wherever destination they are going. Each year, it seems that the number of students who move overseas for studying is going up.
From 2000 to 2017, the number of students who moved overseas for school went up by 2 million students (“International Students” 2020). Students tend to worry about moving far away and the process that comes with it. However, with A-1 Auto Transport, they make the move for students very easy. Students are able to get their things dropped off to their new home which makes for easy movement. Students can get their car or their valuables brought with them so that their new home really feels like home and they feel comfortable in a new place. The service is also affordable for college students. With more students constantly studying overseas, this service really makes everything easy for the student and their families. Their family can relax knowing that their children are in good hands when it comes to moving.
