With uShip, going away to college is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1 | Create Your Listing
List your college move with as much detail as you can. Be sure to include required dates or a time frame for your move, a list of large and small items to be moved, number of boxes, measurements of all large furniture, photographs of your items, and the level of service you prefer. There are a few different levels of moving services available. There’s self-service, where you move your items on and off the truck and loading service, where you pack your items and the moving company loads and unloads the truck for you. Another option is white glove or full-service movers, when the movers pack and wrap your items for you and place it in your new apartment or dorm room.
Make sure you have an itemized list of your college move. A detailed listing allows movers to place more accurate quotes on your move and reduces the chance for surprise costs on moving day.
2 | Choose the Best College Moving Company
After your listing is created, college moving quotes from accredited companies will start coming in. They’ll be competing to win your business, ensuring you’ll get the best moving rates. As the quotes come in, you can ask questions of the moving companies and talk to them directly. Find out more about their experience, their services, and their ability to navigate a move on a college campus, if necessary.
Every college moving company on uShip has a profile with their transportation history, safety records and customer rated feedback. We strongly encourage you to review the college moving services these companies provide by viewing their profiles. Most college movers will have photos of their trucks on their profiles, so you know what your things will be moved in. You can also see completed shipments along with the review direct from the customer. By reviewing the profiles of the moving companies, talking to them through their quotes, and comparing prices, you can feel confident you’re choosing the best college moving company for you.
3 | College Moving Day
Once you have chosen your college movers, contact them directly with any additional details, concerns, or questions you may have about your move. Let them know more about the pick up and delivery areas. Some moving trucks may have a hard time getting to certain neighborhoods, apartment complexes, or college campuses. Should you run into any issues communicating with your movers, please let us know. We are here to help before, during and after your college move.
