Tips on how to make your WSU move easier
If you are looking to move to or from WSU, keep these key tips in mind.
- Plan ahead: Moving to campus for the first time comes with a lot of activities to do from booking an on-campus or off campus apartment, registration, packing and so on. Coming up with a list of tasks to do and a timeframe can save you a lot of time and energy. You don’t want to pile up work.
- Book an apartment or dorm early: This should be at the top of your plan. Booking an apartment or dorm early helps you determine what to move with, what not to carry and how to carry them. WSU is at the center of a populous Detroit City. You can decide to rent an apartment outside the campus or live on campus. Check the housing options available.
- Get your moving boxes: Moving boxes can be costly. Finding cheap or free moving boxes can save you some money by reducing the moving cost. Visit furniture stores and request for free used boxes at least one or two weeks in advance. Check out where you can get free moving boxes. Utilize your suitcases, garment bags, laundry baskets and garbage cans.
- Pack smart and early: You don’t want to end up carrying a lot of household items that you will not use. It will only unnecessarily increase your moving expenses. Pack the most important items that you are sure you will need during the semester. If it is something that you may need later, you can go back for it during the breaks. Pack different items every day to avoid last-minute rush. You don’t want to break your delicate items, damage your valuables or forget essential goods.
- Hire a moving company: Moving your household goods on your own may take longer than you expected and be more costly in the end. You can also lose some boxes, valuable items can get damaged, and the weather may not cooperate. Hiring a mover can save you a lot of time and hassle.
Why you need a professional moving company for your WSU move

How to find the best university moving company
