Advice for Students Moving to Bath for University

The first thing the Thomas Firbank team would like to do is congratulate everyone who worked hard to achieve their A-level results. It’s a strange time to be a student now, but there’s plenty to look forward to if you’re going to study in Bath. The city is very student-friendly, with lots of places to enjoy your spare time while you take a break from studying.

Thomas Firbank has an affordable range of services which includes student removals and storage packages. We have specific health and safety protocols in place to ensure your relocation is completely safe.

Choose a Safe Removals Company for University –

Starting university soon is bound to cause some anxiety, especially for parents of students who are moving to a new city. While we can’t keep on lockdown forever, it’s crucial to keep up our standards to avoid taking unnecessary risks. It’s also vital for new students to have some optimism about their time in higher education.

Thomas Firbank has worked throughout the pandemic, even during the stricter phase of lockdown. We know how to perform safe relocations and storage jobs. We have additional measures to prevent infections and contamination occurring. Every vehicle has all the right cleaning materials and products to disinfect as we work.

Another bonus of booking with Thomas Firbank is we have the best rates for removal and storage in Bath and beyond. We’re part of an elite network of removals and storage providers called the Master Remover Group. This makes it possible to collect your possessions from anywhere in the UK, which is ideal for long-distance students.

Working with Thomas Firbank will give you the peace of mind everything is done to the safest and highest standard. Lots of parents book with us because of our positive reputation and ability to undertake any type of relocation. We’ll promise to get your belongings to Bath safely, so you can concentrate on starting the next chapter in your life.

Using an Affordable Man & Van Service –

The thing most students need is good value for money. That’s why any removal service you use has to be affordable, even if someone else is helping you finance the relocation. We think the best fit for price and suitability is our Man & Van removals service. It’s ideal for smaller loads and is a favourite for students.

While we keep our costs low, this doesn’t equate to a reduction in our high standards to balance things out. Thomas Firbank’s ethos is that value for money and excellent customer service can coexist. Our student customers get the best of both when they book with us, and we work with thousands of learners every semester.

Another advantage of using a man and van service is the vehicles are easier to park, even if densely populated areas. This avoids any awkward exchanges with your neighbours because of an obstructing removal’s van. We can park up, pack everything, and be gone before it becomes an issue. Furthermore, we’ll do our homework to check for parking restrictions and best approaches for loading.

Every man and van job comes with two expert Thomas Firbank removal team members to do all the heavy-lifting work. And we can assist by creating a basic inventory of your belongings as we pack. We do also suggest you download a home inventory app before the moving day as it also works for insurance purposes.

Store Your Belongings During Vacation Time –

When the term ends, lots of students head home during the holidays and leave most of their things behind. It’s a bad idea to leave belongings in dorms or a student share house, especially if no one’s staying back. This is especially true if you have expensive equipment that’s too bulky to take home with you.

The reason why this isn’t a well-thought-out plan is that thieves target student areas. Why? Students tend to have a lot of electronic items, and it’s a guarantee to find them in every room of the property. Most burglaries are opportunistic, and they will wait for vacation time to see where the vacant houses are.

You can stay one step ahead of them by renting a self storage unit from Thomas Firbank. We have the most extensive storage facilities in Bath, giving you a lot of choices. We recently added more units and have the largest depot in Somerset. There are specific storage packages for students to suit everyone’s budget. And we can arrange to collect your belongings from your house or apartment.

Thomas Firbank’s Covid-19 Safety Measures –

We’re now in the next phase in the lockdown process, and this makes it possible for us to undertake student relocations from all over the UK. It does mean that everyone should be cautious and remain safe to prevent new infections. That’s why we created a Covid-19 Health Policy for all our relocations and storage jobs. Additionally, we will provide updates on any significant developments to how we operate when introducing them.

This Thomas Firbank Health Policy is our commitment to our customers and staff. It aims to promote the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitisation, with a view of preventing any new infections of Covid-19. While we understand how vital a relocation is, it must always be done safely and within the guidelines set by the government and the World Health Organisation.

Every member of our removal’s team will regularly wash or sanitise their hands, which includes before arrival and throughout the job. Thomas Firbank provides our team’s with PPE equipment and hand sanitiser. We wipe down any surfaces or frequently touched objects with disinfectant wipes. We also suggest booking a professional cleaning service which we can provide a referral for.

We’re also taking inquiries and bookings from online video platforms. Video quoting, via WhatsApp, Facetime or Zoom, is how we offer quotes. We can conduct in-person meetings where necessary, but we’re trying to limit them. These measures will help reduce any risks of infection without causing any issues with the services we offer. We will always be available to discuss your relocation by phone, email, or on one of the video platforms.

Other Tips to Stay Safe When Studying in Bath –

It’s essential to keep up with the latest updates and information on Covid-19, especially ones that are relevant to where you’re staying in Bath. Remember, you should only reshare information from credible sources that are factually correct. For practical advice on how to best avoid contracting the virus, you can check out the WHO and NHS websites.

Please keep up to date with advice on preventative measures, such as using face masks, hand sanitiser and soap. Social distancing is vital to preventing the spread of this coronavirus. You must try to keep a safe distance from other people if you have to leave your home. Furthermore, try and limit your outings to once a week and consider options for things like home deliveries.

It’s important to remember to take care of yourself and try to build up your immune system. Wherever possible, increase your intake of fruit and veg, take multivitamins; specifically, vitamin c and zinc, do daily exercise and improve your sleeping habits. It’s also a good idea to try and limit your alcohol intake, so maybe take it easier during Freshers’ Week.

We Pride Ourselves on Excellent Customer Service –

Thomas Firbank bases everything we do on the understanding that everyone has different requirements. To ensure we fully understand each individual situation, we undertake a thorough assessment process. By doing this, we can talk you through our range of services and suggest what we think is the most suitable option. This is essential for anyone who’s booking their own relocation or for parents doing it.

Thomas Firbank has a variety of vehicles to take on any size relocation, and we have the right tools and equipment to move any furniture.
