Moving into Your Student House: The Facts There are few times in your life when you’ll be as excited about moving into a house as you will be about moving into student houses. The rent is usually cheap, they are most probably furnished, the rooms are a good size and of course, you get to live with your friends instead of your parents which pretty much means that anything goes! This exciting time needs to be enjoyed as much as possible but unfortunately there are a few actual boring moving arrangements that need to be made and taken into consideration before all the fun can start. Finding the Right HouseFinding the right house is obviously a completely essential part of moving into your student house. The things which are commonly looked for are big rooms and enough rooms to accommodate all your friends so you can all live together. While it’s important that you’re happy with the house in this way, it’s also important that it’s well maintained, secure and in a good location that is near your university or college. Once you’ve moved in it will become very clear that these factors are much more important than the size of your new bedroom Finding the Right LandlordMaking sure that your landlord is legitimate is vitally important when your moving house. It will be the landlord’s responsibility to take care of all sorts of things related to the house including making sure everything works and that it’s a safe place to live. It is your landlord who you will give your safety deposit to so it’s important to check the safeguards around this, specifically that he puts it into Deposit Protection Scheme which will ensure it’s protected until your lease ends and you move out of the property. PackingPacking before you move house is always one of those tasks which simply seems to go on forever. However when you’re moving into a student house and therefore only into one room then it’s unlikely that you’ll want to take every single one of your possessions with you and in this case it’s possible instead to just pick out the choice items that you’ll actually need. It’s worthwhile being a bit ruthless and not taking absolutely everything with you, this will save on space not only in your new property when you arrive but also during the actual move itself. Before you start packing it’s important to get the correct materials together including boxes, bubble wrap, packing peanuts and labels. Being organised about the packing process in the beginning will save you plenty of time and trouble in the long run. Labelling all of your boxes will mean you can easily unpack them when you get there and wrapping your more fragile possessions in bubble wrap will ensure that they all arrive safely at your new property. Removals ServicesChoosing the right removals services when you’re moving into your student house is hugely important. Many students choose to take on their move themselves but hiring a man and van is always a great option especially for those with lots of things and who need to travel a long distance. This is also a good option for those who are transporting furniture or bulkier items which will need to disassembled and carried onto the vehicle as the movers will know how to do this quickly and easily.Following these tips should make for a great move into your student house and the sooner all of this is out of the way, the sooner you can start having fun!
