For Students

Student moves to and from the Guildford Surrey University and student halls are regularly carried out and the cost of moving universities can be reduced if you are happy to help load and unload the van.
Usually the price will be lower if parking and the already packed boxes and bags are as close as possible to the entrance doors.
All items are moved with total care and will be fully insured. Up to one person may travel with the driver (following Covid19 safety guidelines) to simplify your move.
