Student Removals - 4 Tips And Tricks
23 May 2014
1.    Ensuring that you are well prepared is going to be the key to a successful student removal. You will find that there are a great many things that you can do in order to ensure that you set off on the right foot, and they will have a lot to do with the logistical and timing nature of your move. You will likely feel lie the move between your parents place and a student room is not going to be a massive thing, but when you come to consider the various ways in which you could do things, it may well become a much larger project over all! If you are well set to get the job done easily and efficiently, then it will all go nice and smoothly, so spend a little time preparing!2.    Packing is a big part of this preparation, as it will be key in ensuring that all of your items arrive safely. Depending on what kind of student you are, as well as the kind of things that you will be taking with you, you will find that there are different aspects of the packing to worry about. Some people will just be taking a couple of bags of clothes and a load of books and the like. Some people will be moving in to a house and will want to take a load of furniture up with them, or even musical instruments and extras bits and pieces. You will find that your packing has a great bearing on the transport that you chose. Be sure not to pack to frivolously, as there can often be the temptation to overdo it, and regret having had to lug absolutely everything that you own up, only to find that your halls room is a lot smaller than you thought! 3.    Transport will be the main thing that you need to worry about. Are you driving yourself up in your own car, or do you need more space than that? If you are driving alone, then there is a surprising amount that you can fit in to a car when the back seats are available. However, there is also a lot to be said for avoiding the panic of trying to ram everything in to the car, and just hiring a van to do the job. If you do do this, then you need to think about dropping the van off afterwards, or the high cost of having a man and van driver do the job for you, especially if it is a long drive! 4.    You may find that there is a lot to be said for having a friend or relative help you out. If you don’t have your own car, then you may well want to engage in the time old tradition of having your parents drive you up to uni to see you off, just be sure that no one sees you hugging them good bye! Jokes aside, the benefits of sharing a mode of transport can be really rather high, and you will find that having a friend who is going to the same uni can be very useful. If you don’t have anyone that you know going, then you will find that there are plenty of websites where you can meet up with people in your area who are going to the same place, and you can arrange to share a car or a van, or at least liaise over how you are going to get everything there!
