Moving is one of life’s processes that cannot be completely ignored. It may be put off for a while but when the time comes, it must be done. Most people consider moving to be a daunting process, regardless of the number of times they have moved. This is a sentiment shared by many people in America, despite the statistics which show that about 17% of the entire population of the country moves each year! People move for different reasons, one of the most popular being to have an easier commute. Students on the other hand usually move to join a university or college or after attaining their undergraduate degree. Whatever the reason for your move to or from University of Maine Law School , it does not have to be a challenging process. Actually, we have been in the business of moving students like you in Louisiana and all over the country for over twenty years now. We have a wealth of advice and tips to make your move smoother than you could have ever hoped it would be.
Tips to a smooth university move
Moving to or from university should not be a difficult process. Here are some tips to help you achieve a smooth move.
- Purge: Get rid of clutter from among your belongings. It is absolutely acceptable to accumulate clutter after living in one place for long; however, it is unacceptable to carry this clutter to your new abode. Donate, sell or trash what you do not need any more.
- Have a garage sale: Once you go through your items, you may be surprised by the large number of items you have that you don’t need any more. If these are in good condition, why not sell them out on your front yard in a garage sale? A nifty way to raise moving funds , don’t you think?
- Enlist moving help: This could be in the form of friends and relatives. Perhaps you could also consider a more reliable way of getting moving help , which is hiring professional movers.
Advantages of using professional moving services
Professional moving services are quite an investment, but one that has its benefits. Here are some of these benefits.
- Ability to plan ahead: With the services of a professional moving company, planning ahead becomes easier since all the services are being provided under one roof.
- One-stop shop: A professional moving company offers a wide variety of moving services all under one roof. Whether it is packing services, hauling, trucks for hire and even moving storage, you can access all these from one company.
- Safety of your items: A professional moving company has moving insurance which extends to your items during the duration of the move. This means that in case of any loss or breakage, you will get a replacement. Furthermore, professional moving crews are trained on how to handle even the most fragile items with a very small margin for error.
How to find the best moving company
Finding a good moving company can be a daunting task especially if you do not know where to start. Here are a few tips to get you started.
- Online reviews: Find out if the company has any online reviews. Do past customers offer a good recommendation or not? Do professional bodies like BBB offer good ratings and reviews? All these should point you in the right direction.
- Professional accreditations: While memberships and accreditations with professional bodies are purely voluntary, they point towards a credible company. Furthermore, professional affiliations with bodies like the American Moving and Storage Association means that the professional mover has to operate according to some standards.
