As a student in need of relocation services, it is best to find a local mover that offers student moving services. Often times, they have discounts and lower prices to take advantage of. Moving companies understand that students are usually struggling to get by as it is and they do what they can to offer students the lowest rates possible. Not to mention, they know how to efficiently move a student off campus from dorms and student housing, even in the smallest of areas.
Not only is it important for the movers to safely move your property without causing it harm, but they have to watch that they don’t damage the walls or floors of the building you live in. That is why they come prepared with blankets, extra help, dollies, ramps, and other tools to help them get the task completed as securely as possible. The movers will also likely be trying to conduct the job as many students are walking around, which for the untrained mover, could be quite difficult.
If you decide to allow the movers to pack away your belongings, they will use the proper packaging materials to keep your stuff safe. For example, text books are very expensive and if damaged, they lose a lot of their value. The movers will wrap the books in bubble wrap and assure their safety. Moving companies that have experience in student moves are aware of all matters that must be addressed during relocation.
After you schedule a student move with a moving company and are aware of the day they will be arriving, make sure you inform the campus. Some campuses will give you a parking permit for the drivers so that they can lawfully park where they need to to get all of your belongings out of the housing.
