Admittedly, moving can prove to be a very challenging project. In fact, most people will agree that moving is a daunting process. In as much as these views hold some truth, the main cause of stressful moves is lack of proper preparation. Furthermore, most folks think that moving is all about moving day alone. Our experience for the past twenty plus years in the moving industry has taught us that the moving process begins as soon as you decide to relocate. For students, this is easier because student moves are seasonal and happen around the same time every year. As you anticipate moving to or from State University of New York Polytechnic Institute, we are here to hold your hand through the process. A1 Auto Transport Inc. will give you free moving advice because we pride ourselves on a seamless transition for all our customers. We have moved thousands of folks in and out of New York to other parts of the country and the world with great reviews. We would absolutely love it if your move joined our success stories.
How to have a seamless student relocation
It is possible to move stress-free as a student despite this probably being your first move as an adult. Here is how.
- Pack early: Start packing as early as 6 weeks to your move to avoid a last-minute rush. You may pack extra items that you will not need before your move such as extra beddings, jackets, shoes and clothes.
- De-clutter: Do not carry clutter to your new abode! Do a thorough inventory of your closet and create three piles to ‘sell’, ‘donate’ and ‘trash’.
- Get rid of what you do not need: Your three piles of items should not find their way into your moving boxes at all. Get rid of them immediately as marked. Do not attach any sentimental value to these items to avoid taking them back in again.
Benefits of hiring a professional moving company
There are loads of benefits tied to hiring the services of a professional moving company. Some of these services include;
- Reliability: Professional movers are more reliable when it comes to handling your items. This is because they have all the training on how to handle different items to avoid any damage. Furthermore, you can depend on the professional movers to show up on moving day as stated in the contract.

However, movers are able to take professional inventory of your items without missing anything. Furthermore, you can be sure their inventory will be more organized than yours could ever be.
