Moving out of your student accommodation

student-house-removals

The academic year is about to end for most students.  After finishing your last exam, assignment and the following celebrations, it’s time to either move back home after your final year or to a new student accommodation.

We can only imagine how much stuff you’ve gathered in the last year and how stressful it can be to move all those boxes (full of clothes, books, kitchen utensils etc) and furniture from one accommodation to other.  If you’re struggling with this and wondering how on Earth you’re going to move it all, we have a solution!  For an affordable price our sister company Mistoria Spotless can do it for you.  Experts in all types of removals, our team make will sure all your belongings are treated with extreme care and transported safely to your new address.  In addition, the team can disassemble and re-assemble furniture in the new property if required.  Moving to a new student accommodation can be an opportunity to get rid of the things you don’t need anymore.  The Spotless team can also help you to responsibly get rid of any unwanted items.

All you’ll need to do is empty your cupbaords and pack the boxes.  However, packing can be a time consuming process.  We recommend you don’t leave it until the day before moving, as it generally takes longer that expected.  When planning your packing, it is important to consider that each object is a different size and shape.  It’s a good idea to collect boxes of different sizes to ensure everything can be packed securely.  It may sound obvious, but try to place items together according to their characteristics.  For example it’s recommended to place all your hazardous objects such as sprays, paint cans or chemical products together into a separate box to your electrical goods.

When it comes to packing fragile items, wrap them with bubblewrap and/or newspaper to avoid any damage.  Pack heavy items in small boxes to help with transportation.  Don’t overfill any of your boxes.

Think ahead and have a smallbag with your day-to-day essentials in ready for the night before and day after your move. You may be unable to unpack everything straight after moving, and it can be really frustrating to open boxes looking for your toothbrush.
