Tips to achieving a stress-free student move
As we have mentioned above, you need not have a stressful move just because it might be your first or second move as an adult. If you follow these tips, you will be sure to have a stress-free move.
- Pack each room separately: Packing is one of the tasks that you must master for a stress-free move. Ensure that you pack each room separately, in different boxes. Avoid mixing items up as this will only serve to stress you out as you unpack.
- Label and number your boxes: Besides packing your rooms into different boxes, ensure that you label and number each box clearly. If for instance you have more than one box for your bedroom, you can label these ‘bedroom 1’, ‘bedroom 2’ and so on.
- Color code your boxes. This might seem like overkill, but you will be thankful you did this. You can use different colored markers color each box differently. Be sure that these colors are marked prominently to prevent mixing up your boxes.
Reasons for hiring a professional moving company
Another foolproof way to have a stress-free student move is hiring a professional moving company. This has its advantages, some of which we have listed below.
- Provision of correct moving supplies: Moving requires that you have certain moving supplies and equipment which you probably do not have lying around the house. Professional movers are fully kitted for any type of move, and will come with all that you need to have an easy move.
- Prevention of personal injury: Hoisting and hauling heavy items and furniture is a component of moving that is unavoidable. Since you are not trained on how to do this in the best way, you might injure yourself. Leave this to the trained professional crews.
- Storage options: Moving into a tiny dorm room or apartment might leave some items in your hands with no space for them. Professional moving companies have their own storage facilities or access to good storage facilities at the snap of a finger.
