Student Movers London

Going to University is an exciting experience, whether it’s your first year or your last year. London has 40 higher education institutions, it has a student population of more than 400,000. Students from all over the world are moving here. Some students are attracted to the prestigious Universities, others are attracted to the vibrant city. Elephant Removals has an outstanding service called student movers London, with over 15 years of experience - we have helped plenty of students take the stress out of moving to university and home again.

Student Moving Van

Some students choose to move into the halls of residence. One of the advantages of the halls of residence in London is that students from different Universities across London live together. All the bills are included plus the maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about extra costs. First year students get priority, often in London students stay on in the halls of residence for the rest of their degree because of convenience and cost.

Others prefer their own space, and would rather rent a flat with friends. Whichever accommodation you decide to move into, we offer student moving services.

Cheap Student Removals

We understand that students don’t usually need to have an entire house moved and are always on the lookout for cheap student removals. We are pleased to offer our small removals service for students. Whether you are moving into student accommodation or you are moving back home, no move is too small for us.
