    I know this must sound silly but...I searched all over tsr and there doesn't seem to be any forums explaining how to move in...I mean I'm a girl, small and, lets face it, not strong at all.

    I know most people would be dropped off by their parents or bring their own cars or whatever but some of us just simply will not have that luxury so...like..how the **** do I get everything I need to bring to uni by train?

    Am I allowed to send stuff beforehand?...How do I kno the measurements? where/who can I ask for this sort of information?...Is there a limit to the number of electric appliencies?

    Spoiler:

    I kno that most of these questions will be related to the college and uni I'll go to and I kno it might be a bit too early but, like, any tips would help...I'm gonna need to save money to arrange some of this stuff...and the earlier I book everything (being german and all XP) the better. Also moving stuff from another country needs plannin and anticipation...Add that to the fact that I'm super excited to (finally) start next year and you got a thread about moving in a whole year before even gettin final results...hmm

    Limit to electric appliances? i guess your going into a flat or something, not uni halls?.. or do u mean laptop etc.. but there is no limit to that kinda stuff really, just as much space as you have .

    Have a quick google of student moving services, perhaps specify the uni your thinking of , look at each one.

    I know http://www.deliveriesfirst.com/ was recommended by Unite when i moved in.

    You can't send your stuff to the uni before you get there yourself. You can move in before term starts, but only a few days before, if that. He means a student moving company that helps you move in on the day.

    I would say that you should ring your university accomodation office and see what they say. Pardon the pun but they might be quite accommodating. If you tell them about your circumstances they might help you move in or let you move things earlier.

    If this fails then you can look at student removals services. They could help you move your stuff to halls.

    Hope this helps.

    There are loads of international people in my halls and most of them just came with one wheely suitcase (get a pretty big one) and a large rucksack. Then they went to the nearest ikea and bought all the kitchen stuff they couldn't bring over with them.

    You just have to pack light tbh - I had a car full of stuff, half of which I've realised I don't need, whereas my roommate (whose Romanian) has half the closes etc that I do and she gets along fine. You don't really need that many clothes to get by - half of my stuff is just wasted and not worn.

    You'll just have to bring stuff in dribs and drabs. All you really need to start off with is some clothes, bedcovers, toiletries and your laptop: You shouldn't be spending too much time in your room anyway really. I barely went in mine other than to sleep.

    Well I will suggest you to take help of a reputed storage or student removals company which will help you take your luggage and all stuff from one point to another point with security and safely and also provides student discount and free pick up services.
    I know one company named Space Self Storage based in Ireland which provides student removals and storage facility at its best.
