Dos And Don't To Keep In Mind While Packing For College

Moving to a college hostel away from home is a big task for some people because they wanna fit the whole lot of stuff into that small and may be shared space, but don't worry what Packers and Movers Hyderabad are here for, today in this guide we have complied a bunch of tips which you can take as a reference while packing for your college trip. Let's jump to the points.

Don't pack non seasonal goods.

If you are not going too far for college and it's planned that you will definitely visit your home before the winter hits then it's better to leave your parka, boots and heavy winter stuff and when you come you can take that shorts and summer dress with you and exchange there place with your winter stuffs.

Do make an inventory:

If you want a organized and specious room then working on plan is must, don't just randomly take everything you get hand owns and end up having nothing meaningful , rather make a plan what you will need there, what is allowed and what is not, your essentials, things you are attached to. Looking for professional Movers for your long distance move with better safety and reliability then contact Local Packers and Movers in Hyderabad.

Pack your hanging cloths as it is.

There is no need to waste time on taking out your cloths from closet and then from hanger and then pack them up on box and when you are finally at your destination again hang them up on hanger, does it make any sense to you no off course, so grab a big garbage bag pack your hanger cloths in them.

Have a conversation with roommate.

If you are sharing a room then it's #best to know what your roommate is bringing surely there will be no room and use for duplicate appliances,  so ask your friend what he/she is bringing like Mini fridge, cooler, iron, area rugs etc.

Stock up your toiletries:

You don't know what you will find where and how far it can be, so it's better to stock up your favourite shampoo, cream, body wash, conditioner or any other essentials you will definitely need when you are living there. Wanna move your bike to the hostel gate safely? Then get in touch with #Packers and #Movers in #Hyderabad.

Avoid packing which is prohibited:

Probably college hostels and student housing complex’s have rules about what can and cannot be brought in hostel rooms so you better read that rules before you pack and buy anything for your college, may be your favourite string light or toaster are on the blacklist so to avoid any uncomfortable situation.

Do keep in mind to bring professional outfit:

There will be numerous cases where your college may be organizing a professional event or may bring some professionals from various industries to meet students and even potentially interview them for job, in that case having a professional outfit is must you can't miss this opportunity and nor you will have chance to go for shopping and buy one in that situation so you better pack one professional outfit at least for your wardrobe.

Do pack extra pillow.

May be you are one pillow sleeper but when you live in a college you don't know when and where you will require this, may be for your study session or for hanging out so better #pack a extra pillow.

Don't pack anything you haven’t seen in years.

Things which you haven’t used in a years, will make what difference if you take them in your college room accept occupying the space so you better select the things which you will likely to use there. If have some idea to use it any way then you may pack it, so, when you are going through your stuff make sure you segregate what's relevant and will be useful in college.

Have more than 1 towels:

Why we suggest on having more than 1 towel, because you don't know when you will make a round on laundry room and there is not enough time to wash your laundry so pack 3 to 4 towels so you don't have to stick to old and Grody towel. Get transit insurance from Packers and Movers Vijaywada for saving your goods from transit uncertainties.

Keep your fragile safe this way.

Use your socks, towel, hanky and linens for cushioning the packed items and avoid buying packing paper, this way you can hit two birds with one stone means you can save effort of packing them both separately and can save lots of space.

Pack your favourite buddy:

If there is something, seeing which you can't sleep or you need to see it to make your day complete then bring it, you really need it when you are away from home. Whether it's stuff animal, frame or anything don't ashamed of bringing it.

Pack a small safe box

Don't forget to pack small safe which you can store in your closet or under the bed, in which you can store your important documents, credit cards and other small valuables.

If there is somebody in your house whose health condition is little fragile and on high risk of contracting covid 19, then consider delaying your #move for later date.

Are moving companies still working?

If you are all done with the selection process of moving companies then it's best to check the updates related to covid 19 or call them ask how they are working. Like Packers and Movers in Hyerabad are working in India with keeping the precaution in mind but there will be certain states or cities where there is restriction on #moving hours and process. If due to sudden lockdown your move got cancelled then asks for next date or what is the refund policy.

Packers and Movers Hyderabad

What are the Refund policies in this pandemic?

Most companies have amended their policy related to refund, now you are allowed to cancel R postpone your move without any penalty if you give them a few days notice. Check your email for confirmation about the cancellation and refund if you don't find what you need in there then call your moving company, ya they will have certain guidelines like it will take  5 to 7 days to reflect the money on your bank account.

Also if you put down some deposits to secure your moving day then there is less chance of getting it back. So it's better to call them and talk it out.

What if there is urgency for long distance move?

Your move required you to travel in bus or train then be 200% sure that you have taken a required precaution and you are healthy, we all know diabetes patients, obesity and weaken body are more prone to it and if you are going on crowded terminals then the risk is very high, ya you can wear mask, sanitize when needed but will you able to maintain the required distance on train or in bus when you are going for long distance? Off course is next to impossible. Whether it's  a short distance or long distance Top Packers and Movers in Hyderabad never compromise with the health of there team and customer and carry the move by keeping the precautions in mind.

So should you go for travel or not? It depends. If you are above 65 year having a pre existing condition or a pregnant then we strongly recommend postponing the train or bus. If possible consider renting moving vehicle and drive it on your own, this way you can take care of your health and virus, because you know you have sanitize the vehicle on your own and then you are the only one to touch it and can complete your move with less public interaction, and keep in mind to wear the mask, wash your hand frequently and maintain safe distance.

  • Discuss with movers to make contactless move: keep the family member away who are at high risk during the process. If you packed your goods then well if not then make sure that movers team are wearing gloves and mask while carrying out the packing and moving process.

Hire a cleaning company:

Sometime it's our responsibility to leave the house clean like when we are entering for a first time, but going in that dust and dirt is a bad option for you so, hire someone or some house cleaning company for cleaning the house after everything is packed and loaded into the moving truck.

Enough rest is must when you are dealing with moving, and when you can't do the heavy lifting it's good to have a plan in hand like what thing will go where to wrap the things up smoothly and quickly.

For executing this you need to label your boxes and match it with the room you want them to put in. Like for kitchen you can have yellow colour labels and stick the list on front door like use some heading and subheading, write yellow = kitchen and inform movers or your team to follow the same, or you can use alphabets or numbers anything you like, but remember our motive is to guide not to make the inside items transparent, Also if you wanna know more how to measure and decide right place for heavy furniture will they fit or not check out Packers and Movers guides.

Listen to your body needs.

Make sure in the hastiness of moving you don't forget what your body is trying to tell you for the safety of yours and your baby try to take some rest and break whenever you feel low in energy or sluggish. Also have snacks and water bottle near you keeping yourself hydrated and fed is important.

Try to buy baby gear after move:

Babies are tiny and cute creatures but they require lot's of stuffs. Trying to hold off on that baby shower and other items until you move in. Baby gear will only add to more load which you need several months after move then why not to buy them until you settle down.

Cross check the household item's:

In your contract the seller and you agreed upon purchasing certain furniture or belongings and the same cost is included in the sale value. While walking through the home make sure you have the list of the items you both agreed upon is, to cross check the item's with items present in the home.

No one want's the dark and cold welcome in the new house, that's why ask your realtor to get the information on the utilities. So you can decide whether to continue with them and if you want to continue then you can inform them on time when to turn off and turn on the utilities. Also you can check that no overdue bill is left by the seller.

Outdoor inspection:

Checking outside is as important as checking inside. While taking a final walk through the outside of home make sure there is no damage in the exterior, fallen trees, maintained yard and nothing is out of ordinary. If you have any question regarding the lawn and all ask them now.

Request for warranties:

Your home includes some appliances and electronic too, and so your seller is leaving the warranties file, but if that's not the case then you should talk to your realtor. Also don't forget to check the working condition of the appliances and electronic you are getting from a home purchase.

You are all set to go, the home is perfectly ready to welcome you but your current goods are not ready and you are dealing with some other work, Don't worry just call Professional Packers and Movers in Hyderabad and relax.
