The school year is almost over. TSI offers 5 smart tips for moving from college
Wayne, PA, April 7, 2008 – It’s that time of year again when college students across the country are getting ready to leave school. Whether graduating, starting a new job, renting a new apartment or just moving home, many will cram their cars full and still end up leaving behind items too big or too numerous to fit. But they can transport it all – and save the cramming for finals – by using a small mover like TSI (www.transitsystems.com) who can provide moving and shipping services that will match their needs. Here are 5 smart tips on how to get the most for the money when leaving school:
Tip #1 Know your moving needs
If you’re only moving a few boxes, parcel service is usually best. For large-sized or a large number of boxes, freight service is cheaper. For up to 10 pieces of furniture or similar large items, contact a small mover. TSI (www.transitsystems.com) provides both of these services at an affordable price.
Tip #2 Know the mileage
Distance can determine just what type of mover to call. If a move is fewer than 50 miles, use a local moving service. If a move is over 100 miles then a small move specialist is the best choice. TSI offers both local and long distance moving services.
Tip #3 Prepare items properly
To minimize moving expenses, box the things that can be security packed and ship them by parcel service or by using a freight shipper. For larger furniture items, a moving company will take care of the preparation. Preparation costs a bit more, but the convenience and security of professional packing services will justify the cost. Visit the TSI web site (www.transitsystems.com) to find packing tips and free delivery for boxes and packing supplies.
Tip #4 Know time constraints
Different types of moving and shipping services require different amounts of time. When shipping only boxes, a moving company will offer next-day pickup and delivery within a week or less. For larger furniture items, a mover will take one to two weeks for pickup and one to two weeks for delivery. A local moving company will pickup and deliver the items the same day.
Tip #5 Purchase insurance
Supplemental insurance is available on any kind of move or shipment. Movers are required to carry insurance in most states, but not all. Be sure to ask, and get it in writing.
Finishing school for the semester or graduating from college is an exciting time. Don’t let trying to move items to a new location be a stressful situation. A shipping and moving specialist, such as TSI (www.transitsystems.com), can help find a moving solution that best matches the moving needs.
