While student moving does not generally qualify as “moving house” and it does not generally need the moving services of a professional removal company, which does not mean it’s easy. Moving away to college (or even shifting from living on campus to living of campus) is as stressful as any removal. In fact, it can sometimes be even more of a “shock” for the students who finally move off to college and start a life of their own.

As mentioned before, you will most likely not need a man and van hire and you will most likely not need removal services. However, you should definitely be organized when packing your things to move off to college

Here are some of the things you should absolutely keep in mind when going through this “removal” process.

Don’t do it yourself, hire a moving service

If you are taking furniture and other bulky items with yourself to another city or province, you’ll likely find it beneficial to use professional moving services like Tucson movers. Professional moving services ensure everything gets safely transported and on schedule so you have less to worry about as you concentrate on relocating. Keep in mind that end of August to early September is peak moving time for professional moving services, so make your arrangements early.

 Moving as a student is a daunting task. Although it will save you money to move yourself, it will cause a great deal of added stress to the moving process. Not only is there a risk of damaging your most precious items, but you could even hurt yourself. It’s easy to get quotes from various cross-country movers but the thing is that you don’t need just any mover; you need absolutely the best long distance moving company out there. This is where movers in Tucson come to your help, Contact movers in Tucson and get an in-home estimate to determine costs, and to learn more about the move process. 

Allow yourself plenty of time. Estimate how long it will take you to pack everything and then double (at least) that number. You’ll need plenty of time to discard, sort and pack your things. Time is the most valuable thing we have. It is harder to earn and much easier to lose. If you factor in your time, you can save money by hiring Tucson movers. The movers will take care of all the heavy lifting and moving tasks on moving day, giving you enough time to address other important issues which decreases the risks of injury to you, as well as accidents and/or property damage.

Organize your packing. 

You will not have to bring too many things with you to college. However, keep in mind the fact that you will most likely spend at least a couple of months away from home so make sure you take everything you need with you.

Arrange for donations

The more stuff you have to move, the more expensive your move will be. Why? The cost of a long distance move is based on the weight of your belongings. So the more belongings you have to move, the heavier your overall move will be. Similarly, the cost of a local move is based on an hourly rate. So the more stuff you have to move, the longer (or more hours) it will take for a moving company to finish the task. By getting rid of unnecessary household belongings, you’ll be cutting back on both the weight of your move and the time it will take to do it. Don’t forget that by donating your clothes and household belongings to a good cause, you are also helping those in need. From old books and children’s toys to working electronics and seasonal apparel, your hand-me-downs can be recycled and reused by others who need them.

Gather Packing Supplies

When moving, it’s a given that you’ll need cartons of various sizes, packing paper, packing tape, markers etc. You’ll want to make sure cartons are sturdy so that nothing is damaged in transport. Moving cartons can be bought from big-box stores like Home Depot or directly from Tucson movers.

Drop unwanted items 

You don’t need to carry your entire wardrobe, seven pairs of high heel shoes, 8 pairs of jeans and 3 winter coats. You don’t need a lot of other things you could easily buy on campus as well (and this includes grooming tools/products as well). Generally speaking, a week’s worth of clothing will be more than enough. Be smart and don’t allow yourself to carry 3 times more luggages just because you “might need it”.  

Pack Efficiently

Always use smaller cartons for heavy items and try not to over pack cartons to the point where they become too heavy to lift. You’ll want to use larger cartons for items like duvets and other bedding, which can be quite bulky. Try to pack similar items together in the same carton, and use stick-on labels or markers to list contents inside the box. This helps unpacking and putting away items much easier.
