Tips to make your university move easier
In as much as you would expect your university move to be stressful, there are ways to prevent this from happening. Follow our easy guide below for a stress-free experience.
- Purge: Having lived in one place for long, you have definitely accumulated lots of clutter. Go through your belongings and create piles to get rid of. You may also donate what is in good enough condition. Additionally, you can have a garage sale to sell what is good enough to be used by someone else.

Why enlist professional moving help?
As mentioned earlier, a move is the last thing you would want to handle by yourself. Enlisting the services of family and friends may seem like a good idea but not very reliable considering everyone has their own schedule. Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a professional moving company.
- Theyoffer packing services: The biggest task in moving is the packing. Packing takes the biggest chunk of time and effort in the moving process. Therefore, hiring a moving company to handle your move is a good idea as they will take care of this gargantuan task.
- You will save loads of time: A professional company enlists moving labor that is directly proportional to the task at hand. This means that everything is taken care of efficiently; a week of packing by yourself is whittled down to a few hours with the help of moving labor.
Here is how to find a good university mover
There are hundreds if not thousands of moving companies out there. However, there is no one size that fits all therefore you have to look for a moving company that will suit your needs. Here is how to do that.
- Ensure that the company is licensed: All moving companies must be licensed by the United States Department of Transportation. Every licensed company has a unique DOT number assigned to them in the US, and a Cal T in California. Search online databases to establish this.
- Check that the company is insured: Moving insurance should cover you and your essentials during the move. Furthermore, a reputable company should also have insurance on all its trucks, employees and staff. You can find this information on the same licensing database.
- What do their moving costs include? Ensure that you know what services the moving company provides against its cost. An affordable moving company may have a wider host of services tagged to its rate compared to an expensive, white glove service.
