How to achieve a hassle-free student move
Moving as a student can be an overwhelming event, especially since it is your first move as an individual. However, these tips should help you to have a hassle-free move.
- Pack only what you need: When moving into university dorms, most people pack as they would for their homes. However, college dorms have limited space, therefore pack only what you will need to avoid having a cluttered room.
- Ask friends what to carry: You must have friends who have moved into university before you, or have moved out to their first apartment before you. Be sure to ask them what you will need as you move in and out of university dorms; their advice will help you greatly.
- Hire moving help: Moving can be tedious and challenging if you do not get help. You should consider hiring a professional moving company to help you on the D-day.
Why you need a professional moving company
Hiring a professional mover to handle your student move might seem unnecessary for most people. We however are of a contrary opinion, as the points below will show why you need to hire a mover for your student move.
- Professional packing services: Packing for a move may seem as easy as throwing items into a box and sealing it. However, professional packing services will ensure that your items are packed and protected against any kind of breakage or damage by extra padding and wrapping.
- Vehicles and transport: Professional movers have different sizes of moving trucks for various moves. They also have specialized vehicles for transport of items such as pool tables and vehicles, which is something you may not have in your possession.
- Trained moving labor: Moving involves a lot of processes such as heavy lifting and maneuvering bulky items through narrow doorways, loading trucks and so on. All these activities are not easy to accomplish without the proper training which professional moving companies ensure they give their moving crews.

How to find the best university mover
Before you settle on a moving company, it is advisable to vet a few and settle on one that fits the bill. Here are some steps to help you achieve this.
- Get referrals: This is probably the most important first step to take as you search for a moving company. Ask for referrals from people you can trust such as family and friends. You may also consider checking with a few local realtors with a credible background. Contact these companies and request for estimates.
- The rule of ‘threes’: This rule basically means that you compare at least three companies before settling on one. Go through the estimates you have received with a fine-toothed comb, and ensure that you read all the fine print before settling on one that suits you best.
