Move Students Home for Summer with 7 Ways Rental


Moving home from University for summer can be an exciting but stressful time for both students and their families.

While you’re trying to cram in last minute coursework and projects, you’ve also got to think about how on earth you’re going to pack up and move everything you’ve accumulated over the last year.  So whether you’re moving straight into your new place or heading back to the parents for the summer, 7 Ways Rental bring you a quick guide on how to shift your gear in the smoothest way possible. 

1. Get organised with packing

It’s a good idea to start sorting your stuff out as early on as possible to avoid any last minute panics. Break the emotional attachment to anything you don’t really need anymore and get rid. Once you have everything organised you’ll need to find some strong bags and boxes to transport your stuff in without it all falling out the bottom.

2. Decide how to transport everything

While generous parents might offer to come and help you out, its unlikely that their car will have room to accommodate the whole contents of your uni bedroom. It’s definitely worth checking out other options and it might be easiest to arrange a rental with 7 Ways Rental. Our service is flexible enough to be able to offer you van hire in 24-hour blocks for a great price. We have a wide range of vehicles you can choose from so even if you’re coming home with half the contents of Ikea, you can be sure that at least one of our vans will be able to accommodate it.

3. Prepare for the worst

There are bound to be a few hiccups both in the run up to, and on the day of moving. Try and remain calm and overcome each problem as it arises and your move should go smoothly. Load your boxes carefully and make sure everything is secure before you set off and unloading will be a whole lot easier. 

7 Ways Rental is conveniently located in Stockport - close enough for you to travel to many major university towns such as Manchester, Salford, Leeds and Sheffield. When you hire a van from 7 Ways Rental you will benefit from our flexible service and great range of vehicles.

Van hire can be an extremely practical short-term solution but if it’s your first time behind the wheel of a van or you are unsure about the prospect then have a read of our practical tips for driving a van for more info.
