    So I'm going to uni next year as I'm on a gap and since no one in my family drives (I may be by next year but don't plan to take a car to uni anyway) I sort of assumed that I'd move in to uni via train. Its quite a while away (south to midlands)

    However someone I know recently advised to take a car instead.

    Im just curious though, so how did you move in to uni? if you took train or coach was it difficult?

    I moved all my stuff up by car last year and this year. The train is great for getting to and from home when you don't have a lot of stuff, like in the holidays, but really don't take the train when you move up at the beginning and end of the year - too much hassle.

    If that's not possible since nobody in your family drives, you could just hire a courier to take your stuff up in boxes, and arrange to meet them in a convenient location?

    Car.

    Taking everything on a train is just going to be way too much hassle, unless you don't take much and then buy stuff there.
    When I went on exchange I managed to move my two suitcases and backpack around by plane, bus, subway, train and cab... lol. It was tolerable and it works if you have no choice, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it!

    This is actually a good idea, just hope they don't cost too much..

    Btw did you drive or were you taken by family member/friend?
