How to master your student move like a pro
Moving need not be hectic business for you as a student. Here are a few moving tips to enable you to hack your move like a pro.
- Roll, don’t fold: You want to use as little space as possible and buy as few boxes as you possibly can. To do this, one of the tricks you should consider is rolling your clothes rather than folding them. This way, they will occupy less space, saving you the cost of buying extra boxes.
- Use smaller moving boxes: It is wise to try and buy as few moving boxes as possible, but do not buy boxes that are too big. Invest in smaller boxes that will be easier to haul and lift. Furthermore, items like books are best packed in small boxes than bigger ones.
- Get moving help: Ensure that you ask for help with your moving. Friends and family will be glad to help out. However, you have a better chance of a smoother move with the help of a professional moving company.
Advantages of hiring a professional moving company
Besides being the smartest move you will make for your student relocation, here are a few more benefits tied to contracting the services of a professional moving company.
- Professional packing services: Professional moving crews have mastered the science of packing to a tee. In fact, they will be able to pack all your items in a shorter time than you would. Furthermore, they are able to secure even your most fragile items with no danger of breakage.
- Specialty shipping services: College students may have items such as pianos or pool tables, whose moving is more specialized. In order to ensure that these items are not damaged, a professional moving company will employ the best practices to ensure safe handling and delivery.
- Easier to plan ahead: Once you contract a professional moving company, it will be easier to plan ahead for your move since you can attach a deadline to every task. In fact, a professional mover will provide you with a moving checklist if you do not have one already.
How to find the best moving company
Here are some tips to help you locate and hire the most suitable professional mover for your student move.
- Background research: Research a company by checking what reviews they have. You can ask friends, family and local realtors for reviews on the list of local companies you are considering to hire. Additionally, you can also scour the internet for some customer reviews.
- Verify the credentials: Every professional moving company must be properly licensed and insured to operate within the law. You do not want to be moved by a rogue moving company; therefore, check their credentials on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s database.
