There is no doubt that a student move is a hard task. It requires handling with many different chores. Whether you’re leaving university or college for good, or you’re simply changing your current place, you’ll need to handle with many tasks. Starting with planning the move, buying some things you might need, packing everything, transporting things to the new place, etc. All this may make you feel agitated and stressed, but if you read the tips below, you may find moving as a pleasant thing to do.
First thing’s first – create a plan
In order not to freak out, make a nice plan of the moving process. Start with when do you have to finish each task, when and what do you need to buy, consider your new place’s space, etc. Check all of your stuff and throw away anything you won’t longer need, donate some of the things if possible. You don’t need to take unnecessary things with you. You probably have dozens of old notebooks or old clothes. The place where you’re about to move is also important. If you’re staying into a college dorm, make sure to read about the check-in times, procedures, etc. If you’re renting accommodation in a house, you’ll need to inform your landlord about your moving date.
Calculate a budget
If you possess too many things, such as furniture, heave items, etc., you’ll probably need help with the moving process. If you don’t have too many stuff, you can simply ask your parents or a friend to help you. But in the other case, we recommend using professional service. Hiring a removal company is your best option in order to get your stuff safely to your new place. The professionals will help you carry your things and you won’t have to bother with this heavy task. There are different types of removal services depending on your preferences. You can hire only a man with a van, where the driver will help you with the loading and unloading process. This is one of the most preferable options with students. Make a good research on the removal companies. Many offer special student moving rates.
Pack your things
When it comes to packing time, you can use household items, because buying new boxes and suitcases will probably cost you a fortune. You can visit the local grocery store and simply ask for some boxes if they have in surplus. If you don’t have any expensive or too valuable items, it’s ok to pack your notebooks, student’s books, etc. in these boxes. Before you do, make sure they’re clean and there isn’t any moisture or something else wrong with them. You can get plastic boxes from the dollar stores. All this can save you a lot of money. Make sure to label every box so that you know what its content is. That’s how you’ll also help the removal guy, so that he knows if something’s fragile.
Student removal is not an easy task to do. But if you plan in advance, you’ll be calmer and less stressed on the big day. Make sure to follow these tips for your convenience. Good luck moving!
