- A Moving Truck Rentals
- Fuel (note, on average a 24-foot vehicle burns up fuel 4-5 times faster than an average small car)
- Additional Insurance for the truck and content (typical car rental insurance does not cover a moving truck)
- Travel means for your family and you
- Few friends, beer and pizza
However, you don't need to worry about all of these if you hire professional student moving company, except that Beer and pizza is not included!
In a case of some circumstances, moving expenses can be tax-deductible. The move must be more than 40 kilometres away from your original address, and if you are relocating for a new job opportunity or business, the cost for student storage and moving can be deducted, as well as temporary living expenses. Consult your family accountant to see if this applies to you.

Summer Internship Moving
Countless university and college students find internship positions every year, that requires relocating to new hotspot locations. This gives the opportunity not only to obtain real-life experience but also broaden their resume and portfolio. And every time, a new city and a new spot create additional stress for interns that worry about their future living arrangements. But fret not, we have moved thousands of interns and helped them to make the transition to a new city. A faraway city might seem like an intimidating task, but as Sherman Schneider once said “I think everyone should do something like this once in their life, if not more. Everyone needs to break out of their comfort zone”.
Scholarship / OSAP when Moving
If you are considering using some of your tuition funds towards paying for your student moving, please note that most grants and student loans deposited to your account at the beginning of the semester, but not in advance. We recommend researching your university or college scholarships programs, and see if you qualify for it. It is often that a lot of grant and scholarship money does not get claimed at the school, and the financial aid office might be more understanding if you require additional funds to take care basic living expenses.
Every move is planned according to your personal needs and preferences. Student moving should be fun and stress-free, it is a new beginning to your future adventures, and we strive to keep it that way!
