Moving To Or From University Of Connecticut (UConn)
Moving is a process that cannot entirely be avoided throughout one’s lifetime. Moreover, an adult in the United States of America is estimated to move at least 11 times in their entire lifetime. Despite these statistics, moving is still considered a daunting and challenging task by most people. However, this does not have to be the case for you as you prepare for your student move. Students move for various reasons some of which are to join a university in a different city or state after high school or to begin life outside university after their undergraduate courses. As you prepare to move to or from UConn, you can rest assured that we will offer you advice to make it an easy and stress-free process. We have been in the business of moving individuals and commercial entities across Connecticut as well as the entire country for over 20 years without any hitches.
Ways to make your university move easier
Believe it or not, there are ways to make your university move less stressful and more enjoyable. Here are some of those tips.
- Embrace a good attitude: Moving to or from university is inevitable, so having the right attitude about it goes a long way in dealing with moving stress. Embrace the opportunity to make new friends and so on.
- Find out about the new area you are moving to: If you are moving out of your city for the first time, it is wise to find out as much as you can about Connecticut. Find out what the weather is like, what social activities are enjoyed there as well as information about libraries and student working opportunities.
- Hire a professional moving company: No one enjoys moving, so if you can hire the professionals to do it for you, go ahead and do it. This will get your mind off the details of moving.
Do you really need to hire a moving company?
Moving is an expensive venture, and hiring a mover could take your costs even higher. However, there are many advantages attached to hiring a professional mover, some of which are outlined below.
- You will free up your time for other issues: Hiring a mover means that you can trust them to handle all the aspects of your move as you focus on other issues.
- Professional movers have all the right equipment: Moving involves many processes such as packing, lifting and carrying heavy items, loading trucks and so on. Most of these processes require special tools and equipment which you may not have, hence the need to hire a mover.

- Length of operation: Experience is a very important factor when looking for a professional moving company. Look out for companies who have a long and proven track record of excellent service delivery.
- Is the company licensed? All professional moving companies must be licensed to operate in the state they are in. Additionally, the US Department of Transportation assigns a unique USDOT number to every licensed moving company. Find out if their USDOT number is current by checking this database.
