In the United States, every year millions of people relocate across the country. In fact, at least 17% of the entire population moves every year! These statistics are despite the fact that moving is considered to be a challenging task by most of these people. However, you need not approach your move to or from University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science with the same trepidation that most people do. Student moves happen every year for various reasons, one of the most common ones is to join university or to leave university after graduation. A-1 Auto Transport Inc has handled thousands of moves in Maryland and all over the country for over twenty years now. We are therefore an authority when it comes to matters relocation, and you can take our word for it when we say that your student move need not be stressful.
How to have a smooth student move
Moving as a student can be made simpler if you follow these moving tips.
- Plan: We cannot over-emphasize the need for planning when it comes to moving. Have a budget to plan for your moving expenses, decide which tasks should be done first and which ones can be completed as you approach your moving date.
- De-clutter: The last thing you want to do is move with items that you do not need. Not only will this increase your packing time, it means cramped living quarters because dorm rooms or your first apartment may not be as spacious as your room at home.
- Get help: Ask your friends and family to lend a hand with some of the moving tasks such as packing, loading the truck, unpacking and so on. Alternatively, you can hire a professional moving company and sit back as they take over the details of your move.
Why you should consider hiring a professional moving company
Professional movers are best placed to handle a move with great ease as opposed to a DIY move. Here are some advantages of hiring professional movers.
- Free up your time: Moving is a time-consuming project, which is best handled by professionals to free up your time. There are other activities that need to be taken care of which hiring a mover will allow you to do. This includes setting up services like cable, changing mailing address and so on
- Simplification of complex tasks: Disassembly of furniture is one of those activities that can take up all day for a rookie like you. And the reassembly is another headache awaiting you once you arrive at your new home. However, professional moving companies offer such services, making a difficult activity simpler for you.
Tips to finding the best university moving company
Before you settle on a moving company, it is imperative that you check them out very rigorously. Here are some ways to do this.
- Find out how long they have been in existence: You want to move with a company that has experience that spans many years, like ours which has been in existence for over twenty years now. Experience points to a credible and traceable track record.
- Check out their online reviews: Online reviews usually give an unbiased report on the performance of a company. Use credible platforms like Yelp to find out what past customers have to say about the company you are looking to hire.
- Consider their community interaction: A professional moving company will want to give back to the community it serves. Find out if the company is involved in any community initiatives that are not for profit such as ‘Move For Hunger’.
