Moving to and while at university can be very exciting, difficult and an experience! Moving away from home and living independently can be difficult, but also one of the best experiences of your life.
Check with the university as what support or help the offer in on how to find accommodation on or off campus.
If you are looking for a house or flat off campus you will you need to find some housemates to share with, friends that you know well from university often move into a house together after the first year.
If you are moving into a house, you will have to pay council tax. You can get an exemption form for students from your university.
When the time comes to move into your new place for the first time, you need to start packing. Pack everything you may need and don't worry if you think you are taking too much. Ask family and friends to help with secondhand kitchen utensils or books.
When you move while at university look out for services like recycled rental crates that you can put all you things into while you move from one place to another and then give them back.
Small moves can be stressful and the best thing you can do is start to pack things up early. It can be difficult because of a lack of space, but pack up the CDs and DVDs, books and things that are rarely used. Store these away under the bed or in the bottom of wardrobes.
There is a place for everyone in this market, if you only have a small move or a student then this can be an ideal affordable option. However do your research on them, only use a company with a registered address and always get a landline number as well as a mobile. As long as the company is open and honest with the fact they are a man and van and don't have a website with stock photos claiming all things they are not. We do recommended man and van companies who have many years of good service and our visitors regularly offer feedback on them. However if you choose to find a company of your own then a simple review search on the internet may help as well.
