Moving advice for a seamless student relocation
In spite of this move being the first you are making as an adult, it does not have to be a stressful process. Follow these handy moving tips and watch the stress melt away.
- Be positive: Moving has often been associated with negative feelings, a notion that could be weighing down. Our first tip for you is to look forward to the move, forget about all the negative stuff you have heard. Embrace your move and you will begin to look forward to it.
- Say goodbye early: Begin to say your goodbyes early enough. Let your friends know that you will be moving soon and your family too. The worst event would be to let your friends find out via social media that you have moved. Additionally, you can throw a small goodbye party to get everyone together for one goodbye.
- Ask for help: Moving is a task that you cannot hope to accomplish completely by yourself. Ask family and friends to lend a hand when they can. Alternatively, you could hire a professional moving company and let them handle the entire move as you focus on other activities.
Benefits of enlisting professional moving help
Moving is a task that is best left to the experts. Here are some reasons why.

- There’s less risk involved: In moving, anything can happen. This apt phrase points clearly to the various risks involved in moving such as personal injury, breakage and loss of items and so on.

Finding the best moving company
Here are a few tips to get you started on finding the best moving company suited to your student moving needs.
- Get references: Family members and friends can give you good references on local moving companies. Local realtors are also able to point you in the right direction. Additionally, professional bodies such as AMSA and BBB are a good place to find a list of reliable movers.
- Avoid extra costs: Ask about all the costs that the companies put down on their moving estimates. Ensure that you find out if they have extra fees for items such as fuel, overtime charges, packing labor and so on.
- Confirm availability: Most students move around the same time. Ensure the company you want to sign up with for your move will be available when you need them. To make sure of this, book as early as a month to your move.
