Student Moving Tips

| 03/01/2013 | 173 Comments

Being a student’s great. Moving all your belongings from pillar to post, however, is not so great. There’s the initial move from the parents to halls, then from halls back to the parents for the summer, then into new accommodation for the second year. Fun right? No. So here are three key tips on making life a little easier when you’re moving to university.

1 – Clear out any unwanted/unnecessary belongings. Before you leave for university, divide your belongings into ‘essentials’, ‘comforts’ and ‘unnecessary’. The ‘essentials’ is obvious; ‘comforts’ should be prioritised, and depending on the combined weight of your essentials, some of these can go with you. Now the teddy bear that helps you sleep at night may seem like an essential but is only going to take up valuable packing space and probably won’t help you make friends many either. Clearing out old clutter may also get you in the parents’ good books.

2 – Pack properly. This means distributing heavy objects evenly across all of your boxes, packing boxes quite tightly so that objects can’t move around and get broken in transit. Don’t skimp on the tape – bottoms of boxes falling through is a common problem when moving and you don’t want belongings breaking or worse, getting lost.

3 – Hire a reliable company to transport your belongings. Getting trustworthy professionals to transport your belongings means that you can relax once the packing is complete. Here are a few considerations when finding the right excess baggage company:

  • Check the small print for potential hidden costs – Ensure the price they’re giving you for door-to-door delivery isn’t actually door-to-depot and they’re going to whop on additional costs for that final part of the journey
  • Does the company provide free packing materials? A lot do, and it makes life a whole lot easier.
  • Does the company provide shipping insurance? This isn’t a necessity but it does make things simpler when you can buy everything through the same company

Of course, you don’t have to use a shipping company if you’re not travelling overseas and mum’s got a big car! But if you are travelling overseas to embark on this exciting new chapter of your life, the last thing you want on your first chance to check out the student bars, is to be sat in an empty room alone calling various numbers trying to find out what’s happened to your excess baggage, while all your flatmates are sampling the discounted treble vodkas. So, do your research, ask around, and be sure to invest in shipping insurance.
