Being a student is not easy, you have to leave your comfortable home and make a new home in a new city. You are starting a new phase of your life and there will be millions of things going on in your mind like how you are going to adjust properly? Or maybe you are done with your university and are moving out for higher studies. Either way, how are you going to look over everything? How are you going to relocate? What all things you will need there? etc. These questions are very normal and you need not worry about them. You will definitely come through this and once you have sorted everything out then you could be able to finally figure out how to pack and move your stuff.
Packing and moving it all by yourself can be very overwhelming for you sometimes but there are smarter ways to move out and you need not worry about anything. Here is a guide for you to move out of your home and start a new life hassle-free.
Find a suitable home for you
Finding a home as a student or bachelor is difficult. First of all, try to get hostel accommodation from your university. Owners fear before renting any student tenant home and you must ensure that you are good to them. Look over the areas near your university or college. You would not want to get up and then travel miles early in the morning. Get to know the area and search home according to your budget. There are some furnished flats and PG also that you can opt for as they will be more comfortable. But who wants to spend their college life under restrictions, right? Look for a number of services and amenities that you need before renting a house.
Plan your monthly budget
Planning your expenses is another big task for students. We don’t look at where why and on what we are spending. You will have to ensure that you are a responsible person now and moving to the university will mean that you have to take care of your expenses very deliberately.
First of all, look over the expenses of moving out from your home and renting an apartment, giving its security deposit, and buying some necessary items for your new place. Expenses of moving out are majorly the fees of your moving company. But you might also get some exciting offers and discounts by playing your student card.
Find a roommate for you
You do not gel with everyone and you will need a good roommate with whom you share similarities. Do not rush into getting an apartment with anyone and take a look at their habits first. Compatibility is really important here as you will be going to spend a lot of your time with them. Realizing that the person is not the one is not an option after you have rented an apartment with him/her. It will be better to stay alone than to stay with a non-compatible companion. Maybe it will cost you a little more but trust us you will thank us later.
Decide your items you will be moving
While you are moving to a university, it is not just books and clothes that you will be taking with you. Especially when you are moving to a rented apartment instead of PG or a hostel. You must make an inventory of all the things that you will require there. Studying must be your utmost priority and you must ensure to make a special list for your books only. Do not worry about the weight you will be carrying. If you are moving out from the college then make sure to check all the books you need and all that you don’t want. You can either donate or sell them whatever suits you the most. There is no point in taking all the stuff with you if you are not going to need them.
Decide on a moving day
Are you all set to move now, it is time to decide your moving day. Choose a suitable day according to your classes schedule and moving season. You might get good offers while moving also.
The best way to know about the order of your stuff at your new place is to pack strategically. Packing will need a certain amount of time and proper packaging gears to keep your stuff safe. You may need to hire packers and movers at this moment of time to have an efficient move. You can also pack yourself and save some money to have a beautiful brunch on the first day of your college. Will be requiring carton boxes that could handle heavy books also, plastic sheets, bubble wraps, packaging paper, newspaper, etc.
You must start packing thing by thing and label your boxes simultaneously. You can either mark them by numbers, name of the things it contains or you may color code them for different things such as blue for books, pink for stationary, and yellow for clothes. Other than these, pack an essentials bag for you to have something on the initial days of your move.
Move your belongings safely
It is now time to say goodbye to your home and parents and move out. But is moving that easy? You will need to have reliable and reputed packers and movers for a smooth relocation of all your stuff. You would not be able to get all your stuff by yourself as it all becomes so heavy. It is a good idea to hire a moving company if you do not want your books to fall down from the cartons and tear. Moving companies provide you with a lot of services from packing, loading, unloading, arranging your furniture, unpacking, etc. They will do all your work while you can relax with your new friends and enjoy the new place.
How to hire a reliable moving company?
There are many moving companies in the market and you must know which one will be suitable for you. Check for their documentation, reviews, references, services, insurance, etc. to know how authentic the company is, and choose a reputed one for you.
