27th August, 2014
Whether you are just starting university and want to move to your student’s accommodation or have just graduated and would like to move out from your accommodation, moving stuff can be exciting as well as a traumatising and daunting experience.
Having to pack and move all your things along with a million other things to do can become a bit frightening.
However, with a little bit of planning and foreseeing things in advance, can make the move an enjoyable experience. You can make sure that your move to the University accommodation or back home is full of fun and excitement. We bring you some top student removals tips to ensure you have a safe move.
Student Removals Tips: Planning Is Key
Clearly you would know in advance when you are likely to move to your university accommodation or out of it. Mark the date in your diary and start planning backwards. Starting backwards allows you to plan things before the deadline than nearer the deadline. Remember to add a lot of buffer time in your calendar – just in case, things go wrong last minute.
Make a list of all to do items
Take a look at all your things and assess what you will require to pack and to move the things. If you need to move all the items or you would like to sell or give them to charity. Make a list of charities around you that might be willing to take these items from you. If you have to sell anything on Ebay, do it in advance and don’t leave it till last minute. Also, make a list of all possible things you will require. Will you be packing the things yourself? If you will be moving the things yourself, how would you do that, if you will have to rent a van or hire a man with a van service?
It might be a good idea to segregate different items by their item category. For instance, make sure all the books are on side, clothes on one, cutlery on one. This will help you pack similar items in one place and will also help you when you unpack these items. So for instance, after your move, your marked boxes can go to their particular places and you can just take these out of the box without having to look inside each box and finding the items.
Make a list of things inside the box
Although, it might be difficult to make a list of all possible things inside the box, it is a good idea to make a list of the important items and which box they are in. Indeed, marking or assigning the box a code can help you locate the box and the item inside the box. So you can take your time after the move and only open the ones needed at that particular time.
Student Discount Removals
Moving things on your own can prove to be painful and challenging. There are plenty of man with a van services that offer discounts on students removals. Search online for these, you can also look for the ones closer to your students’ accommodation.
