Moving is considered a daunting task by most people. Despite this, the moving masses in America keep moving every year like clockwork. Reliable statistics show that the average American will move at least once every 6 years; a number that adds up to 12 times throughout an entire lifetime. With such huge numbers moving every year, don’t you think it’s about time people mastered the relocation process? We at A1 Auto Transport Inc think so. Therefore, as you get ready to move to or from State University of New York at Geneseo, we are here to hold your hand through it. Our company has moved thousands of folks in New York and the whole country for over twenty years with good reviews. In fact, our company can confidently claim that we have a consistently good track record that can be traced back all those years. Therefore, if you stick with us, you are sure to have a seamless student move; nothing like what you are expecting.
How to have a smooth student move
Moving a student can be made smoother if you follow these handy moving tips.
- Pack different rooms in separate boxes: When you are packing, it is recommended that you pack your room’s essentials into separate boxes. This will make unpacking much easier when you arrive.
- Label and number the boxes: After packing your rooms in separate boxes, use different colored highlighter pens to mark what the box holds as well as the number. For example if you have three boxes for your bedroom essentials, you could number these ‘Bedroom 1’, ‘Bedroom 2’ and ‘Bedroom 3’.
- Pack a bag of essentials: After a long day of moving, the last thing on your mind is unpacking. Therefore, ensure that you pack a box that will hold one or two changes of clothes, some pajamas and daily toiletries. This will help you survive the first night after moving in.
Benefits of using professional moving help
There are many advantages of using professional moving help over a DIY move. Here are some of them.
- Your items are safer: Professional moving crews are trained on the best practices to employ when moving items of all kinds. This includes the most fragile and prized items like art collections. You can be sure that your pool table is in safe hands with a professional moving company.
- For peace of mind: When you hire a professional moving company, the moving hassle is the last thing you will need to worry about. This will be sure to take a load off your mind.
- To reduce the number of trips: When you hire a U-Haul, chances are, you may need to make multiple trips in order to move all your items to your dorm room or apartment. A professional moving company, on the other hand, will give you the right sized truck to ensure that you only take one trip to your destination.
Tips to hiring the best university moving company
No move is identical to another, and each moving company has features that make it perfectly suited for different moves. Here is how to identify the best mover for your student move.
- Rates: A professional mover who understands that moving is an expensive affair will usually offer student rates and discounts. Look for such companies and compare their rates.
- In-home estimates: When you request for a moving estimate, a professional moving company will send a representative to do a thorough walk-through of your home before sending the estimate. Companies that offer on-phone estimates should be given a wide berth.
- Reception: Phone and in-person reception says a lot about the company’s way of handling clients. You want to settle for a company whose representatives have a personable yet professional reception on phone and in person.
