The first step into the world of adulthood that you will probably make would be when you move out of your home in order to go to university. No matter whether they are to dorms, a flat or a students’ house, removals of such kind are exciting… and a little scary. The possible source of worries is, naturally, the many things that may go wrong with a student removal, from improper packing to forgetting essential items to other, more subtle risks. But have no fear, it is not said that when we are talking about student removals, something is destined to go wrong. Quite the contrary, if you keep several simple rules in mind you are going to see that everything is going to go smoothly and you will have the chance to enjoy your new life from the beginning.
The rules we are talking about are as follows:
- Do not take packing lightly. It is the key moment in every relocation, no matter whether you are moving into a small dorm room or a huge mansion. Packing takes a little organization and the right supplies. You are going to need a number of boxes, depending on the amount of items you are going to get with you. Keep in mind that all you need are the essentials. It is advisory not to bring every piece of childhood memorabilia that you keep at home. The right packing boxes and the right manner of packing – not to heavy, so that the box does not break, but still putting enough items at one place so that you do not need a whole truck to move every box – would ensure that your move goes without complications and is completed quickly and hassle-free.
- Once everything is packed, you will need to figure out a way to transport your items from home to your new place. The options here vary according to the situation. Your parents might be able to help you by lending you the family car, but if that is impossible, a man with a van or other professional removals contractor would be invaluable. The cost of professional moving services nowadays is pretty affordable, so this should not scare you at all. Many companies offer special student removal services, so all you have to do is check online and ask for a few quotes so that you can make an informed choice.
- Now that you are in front of the building where you will live in the foreseeable future, all you have to do is unload your boxes from the vehicle and move them to your place. This is actually the riskiest part, because you should not leave your boxes unattended on the sidewalk for even a minute. While it is unlikely that someone snatches a random box while you are not watching, bikes, guitars and other such items attract the attention. You would not like it if you lose something so valuable the first day, so keep a careful watch.
