Tips on how to make moving to or from UMF easier
You want to move to or from UMFK but you don’t know where to start? Here are some tips on how you can make your move easier:
- You need to prepare well in advance. At UMFK, 20 percent of students live in the apartment owned or managed by the campus while 80 percent live off the campus. This means that chances are high you will live off-campus. Get information about the available rental apartments outside the school. Get help from the landlords and the locals. Also, know the cost of rent, the size of your room and whether you will be living alone or with a roommate. If possible, confirm personally that the house is in good condition, electricity is working, sinks are intact and everything else is in order.
- Start packing early enough. Packing at the last-minute puts you in danger of forgetting essential items, breaking delicate items and mixing up your belongings. Get all the moving boxes you need ready. Pack what you need most first. Ensure that you don’t mix food stuff with detergents or chemicals. Don’t carry what you don’t need. For instance, there is no need to carry your pool table or huge furniture when there is no space for them.
- Get the transportation estimates. You can seek help from a professional mover to tell you the size of truck you need for your items and how much it will cost. You can compare the quotes from many sources.
- Hire a moving company: Moving on your own can be time consuming and costlier in the long ran. You can seek moving help from an affordable mover and save time and money. Compare their rates to find the best fit.
Why you need a professional moving company for your university move
Here are the benefits of hiring a professional moving company.
- Your belongings get protected and covered. You don’t need to worry about accidents and damages during transit.
- When you hire a moving company, you reduce the cost of moving. You can compare the rates for different companies and negotiate according to your budget.
- Most professional companies offer full services ranging from door to door services, packing, unpacking and moving storage. Your excess or unnecessary items can be stored until the end of the semester creating space in your dorm or apartment.
- Saves you from possible personal injury that might occur if you do the moving on your own.
