Small Moves for Students

Small Moves for Students

Whilst the benefits of being a student can be plentiful, so too are the logistics of the location and accommodation kind – but not always positively! Just relocating from home to campus, campus to off-site accommodation, accommodation to year-in-industry and from anywhere to back home again can all be challenging, especially when what you really need is a small move on an even smaller budget!

To support students in managing their moves, Alliance Removals offers a dedicated small moves service, as we’ve recognised that it’s often a challenge for students to find cost-effective professional removals and transportation. This is usually because small loads over long distances are generally expensive: many removal companies or man-with-van businesses charge based on time and mileage – which would be the same for any load large or small.

With Alliance Removals’ Small Moves, quotes are personalised and based on the fact that several small loads can be undertaken on the same trip, so all of those mileage and time costs are split between all of the small load customers: the cost as well as the load is shared. Sharing could be organised with campus or house-share based friends who need a move to a similar local area, or through the availability of vans and removers to an area.

Small move, big benefits

Hiring a small move from Alliance Removals can bring plenty of benefits in addition to being a student budget-friendly service, as we offer:

  • A flexible ‘small move’ criteria – from single boxes or an item of furniture to a full room.
  • Drivers on hand to help with loading and unloading.
  • Convenient pick ups and drop offs.
  • A fully insured service from a professional removal company, ideal if your load includes valuable items such as costly hardware, study-relevant, hobby or sports equipment.
  • Easy and cost-effective options for linking a small move to additional Alliance Removals services, such as short or long-term storage for those gap years, study sabbaticals or study exchanges which take you abroad for a year.
  • A nationwide service which can even accommodate European small moves if your plans include going straight from your studies into a continental career!

Getting a small move moving

Obtaining a quote using Alliance Removals’ online small moves form, which calculates the distance and amount of items is an easy way to check on the cost and get your move moving.

From there, a small move is easy to arrange. Alliance Removals understand that these things are sometimes last-minute, so we offer flexible booking systems which mean that short-notice moves can often be accommodated as standard.

Of course, booking in advance is also possible so that you get everything organised and forget about it until the time comes, allowing you to concentrate on those studies. So, to prevent your need for a small move from becoming a big issue, just contact Alliance Removals.
