Things Students Need to Consider Before Moving to London

Going to University is always a big deal in anyone’s life, whether you are a parent or a student. Parents are left feeling free and relieved, whilst worrying about the welfare of their children at the very same time. Students on the other hand, happen to think more about the partying and freedom when the word University is mentioned. Little do they know that University is the beginning of responsibility and adulthood. There are many things to consider and be cautious about. From financing to having to do your own laundry, University is certainly no joke. One of the things students often forget to think about is the moving process. This article aims to provide you with those necessary hints and tips that will make your moving experience less of a hassle.

If you are lucky enough to have found a University which is not too far from home, you will have the privilege of remaining in your family home and save yourself a lot of hassle. However, if you choose to move out of your home, whether that is a personal choice or one that is compulsory due to your University being in another city too far to travel to and from on a daily basis, then you need to plan moving to your new destination.

You have the option of moving into halls of residence or get yourself a house or flat which you can rent privately, either on your own or with some friends. This is the first thing that you need to decide. Rooms in halls of residence will be significantly smaller than your bedroom or any rooms in a private flat. This will affect the amount of belongings that you will be able to take with you. It is therefore always wise to check out the sizes of the rooms, whether that is by arranging an appointment to view the flat/room, or by asking the landlord for measurements. If the place is advertised online, you may also find floor plans including room sizes, so it is always wise to have a look.

Once you have decided on where you are going to move, and you have seen how much room you have, it is time to consider and start packing. It is always wise to pack the necessities first. There is no use packing a sound system if it is going to take up all the room on your desk and prevent you from setting your PC up – after all, no matter what you as a student think, a PC is more important at University that a sound system!

Another thing to consider is how you are going to get your belongings from one place to another. Some of you may be lucky enough to have your own vehicles, or family members that are happy to offer their services, but in the event where this is not the case, you are going to have to find an alternative.

There are many removal services available for students, including full A to Z services, where professionals will pack, load, transport, unload and unpack all of your belongings. If you are just looking for a large vehicle, then you also have the option of hiring a van/truck. Man with a van rentals are ideal for those who are looking at hiring a van which is accompanied by the driver.

Following these hints and tips will help make your move a lot easier and hassle free, so you can worry more about enjoying student life!
