Are you already dreading moving out of your dorm room or student housing at the end of the semester? You might be – especially if you remember how much work and heavy lifting was involved in getting all of your things moved in the first place.
We turned to the Cambridge student moving company for tips and strategies you can use to make your upcoming move easier, less stressful, and more affordable. Here’s what they had to say:
Schedule Your Student Move Early
The price for moving services is determined by several factors. One important factor is when the move occurs. If you can know your end of semester schedule in advance, try to schedule your student move during a convenient mid-week window. Early scheduling also ensures the movers will be available when you need them to be. Availability is sometimes limited and you don’t want to be closed out. Schedule your move as soon as you can.
Choose a Student Moving Company That Doesn’t Impose a Minimum Load Charge
Here’s a secret not many people know: there are moving companies that charge you extra money if you don’t have a lot of stuff to move. This is known as the minimum load charge, and it’s very, very unfair to students. Students typically only have a minimal amount of things to move, including a few pieces of furniture and their personal possessions. It’s not fair to have to pay a penalty for this! That’s why it’s important to choose a Cambridge student moving company that doesn’t charge a minimum load charge.
Understand Your Storage Options
What happens if you’re going somewhere else for the summer but returning to Cambridge in the fall? Does it really make sense to move all of your things all the way to your summer time address and then all the way back to Cambridge again? Safe, secure storage can be a smart viable alternative.
