Top Tips for your University Packing from Britannia Bennetts

Heading off to university is an exciting adventure but packing for it can be a daunting task.

Use our knowledge, gained from over 30 years experience of packing and moving, to make the process smoother .

Here are our essential tips to help you pack efficiently and ensure you have everything you need.

1) Make a Uni packing list 

Start by making a checklist of essential items you'll need. Create a list of things to take for each room including bedroom, kitchen, clothing and university supplies. Having a visual guide will make packing more efficient and reduce the likelihood of forgetting something important.

2) Pack the Essentials First:

Begin with must-have items that you need to take to university like bedding, toiletries and important documents. This ensures that even if you run out of time or space, you'll have the crucial items with you. Also don’t forget to bring any medications or health supplies you might need and a basic first-aid kit.

3) Use strong packing boxes and label them clearly.

At Britannia Bennetts we provide a wide range of moving supplies including boxes, tape, paper, linen bags and other removal materials to help keep your items safe while on the move. These packaging supplies are available from our warehouse, and we are happy to advise on the most suitable moving boxes.

4) Label Your Belongings

 Use labels or coloured tags to mark your personal belongings. This helps you find them and stops mix-ups with roommates. This is especially important for any tech or gadgets you take with you as well as the all-important chargers which can become hotly sought after items when batteries start running low.

5) Don't Overpack

Keep in mind that rooms in shared accommodation are often compact, so it's essential to avoid overpacking. Be selective with your belongings and invest is storage solutions to maximise your space. When using decorative items avoid unnecessary clutter. Use pin boards or photo string with clips to display photographs or posters allowing strong visual impact while taking up minimal space.

Finally, if you have packed all you need but then can’t fit it all in your car we can help.

At Britannia Bennetts as well as helping you with your packaging materials we also offer a wide range of removal van sizes meaning that no job is too small. We offer a ‘part-load’ removal service where possible as client moves take us all around the UK so transporting a small quantity of belongings may be a lot more reasonable than you might expect!
