Tips to a smooth student move
Your student move can be smoother than you expect it to be if you follow these handy moving tips.
- Make a list: Write a list of all the items you will carry with you to the university dorms or your new apartment. Ensure that what you are carrying is made up of life’s essentials, don’t carry clutter as your new living space will not be as spacious as your home.
- Create a moving checklist: Write down a list of all the moving tasks that need to be accomplished in the run-up to your moving day. Additionally, you can assign dates and deadlines for when these tasks should be accomplished. Make sure you tick them off as they are accomplished.
- Remember your plants: If you have any potted plants you will be carrying with you, remember to water them before the move, and keep them away from any hot windows. Additionally, you should ensure that they are not squashed by other boxes and items.

How to find a professional student mover
As a student, you need to locate a mover who will cater to your every moving need without a problem. Here are some tips to help you locate the best student mover.
- Student discounts: Moving as student can be a costly affair, therefore it is great if you can get any discounted rates for students. Look out for these rates and ask around as well as some professional movers will only provide the information on request.
- Moving inventory: Before getting a professional moving estimate, a mover should be able to visit your current home and take a moving inventory. Avoid companies that are quick to offer a moving estimate without taking a moving inventory in person.
