Good advice for moving

Whether you are returning to campus, a first time student making a move to college or just intending to relocate you can make sure that your move will be as free from hassle as possible by making use of the following tips.

One of the most important tips that you need to remember when making a move is to plan ahead.  Ensure that any necessary reservations, such as hiring the services of a professional moving company, are booked in as early as you possibly can.  It is also important to pack boxes in a very strategic manner.  Select a room and then box up a number of items every day, marking each box with its destination room as well as its contents.  Make sure that all of your boxes are packed prior to the arrival of your moving company or rental truck.

No one wants to see their precious personal possessions destroyed or damaged in any way.  You can make sure that your items are kept protected with the use of the correct moving supplies, such as furniture pads, bubble wrap and packing peanuts.

You can also save money by avoiding the weekend rush if at all possible and by keeping away from relocation at the end of the month, which is when the leases on apartments typically tend to expire.  Sunday through Thursday generally offers a greater degree of access to equipment and staff.
