The subject of moving is one that evokes different emotions in people. To some people, moving is a strenuous and uphill task, while to others, it is an exciting project with the prospect of new beginnings. Nevertheless, despite these varied feelings, moving is a universal process and every human being in the globe must move at least once in their lifetime. In America however, the moving statistics are quite high with the average adult moving at least once every 6 years! Students in America also make up a small but significant percentage of the moving masses. Students move for different reasons but the two most common ones are moving to or from a university like the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in Minnesota. With our vast experience spanning over twenty years in the moving business, we have helped thousands of students all over the country relocate with great ease. Therefore, you can count on the advice we shall give you because it is tried and tested, with great reviews.
How to avoid moving stress as a student
Moving day can be stressful but if you take into account these helpful tips, you can minimize or entirely avoid the stress.
- Purge: Get rid of clutter in your closet, pantry and basically the entire house. Clutter can stress you out as you try to fit it into your packing plan and new accommodation.
- Create three piles: As you go through your clutter, create three piles of these items and name them ‘to sell’, ‘to donate’ and ‘to trash or recycle’. Thanks to technological advancements, you can sell your items online on Craigslist or even eBay.
- Enlist moving help: Ask your friends and family to help you with your moving tasks whenever they can. Alternatively, you should consider hiring a moving company to take care of the entire move.
Why you should contract a professional moving company
Moving is a process that can be quite involving and tedious. However, you can avoid all this by hiring a professional moving company. Here are some benefits tied to moving with a professional moving company.
- Cost-effectiveness: Hiring movers is quite an investment, but one that pays off in the long-run. Professional moving companies will give you one cost for all your moving requirements, and they will also provide all the services you need. This definitely beats looking all over town for different moving services suppliers.
- Time saving: Packing by yourself could take hours and even days. Professional movers are trained on the most efficient practices to turn your move into a one-day process.
- Less work for you: As mentioned earlier, moving is a tiresome project which involves many physically involving tasks. When you hire a professional mover, you can sit back and relax as they handle all the packing, hauling, lifting and other tasks of moving.
