Tips for Packing Your Valuables when Moving
Most of us have experienced the stress of a move. It takes time and a lot of patience to make a move bearable, and one of the more tedious parts of moving is packing. When you’re packing valuable items, you want to be extra careful not to lose or damage anything, which is why hiring professionals to move specialty items is always recommended.
As hectic and endless as packing can seem, there are ways to make it that much easier. Below we’ll discuss a few moving tips or checklist to help make your move more organized. We know any bit of advice can help, and that’s what we’re here to do.
Create a List of Your Valuables
Whether you live in a big house or a small condo, one of the best moving packing tips is to create a list of your valuables. It’s already hard to keep track of everything during a move and things can easily get lost, but you don’t want any of your valuables to go missing during your move. If you hire professional movers in particular, a checklist will help you keep track of your valuables during both the packing and unpacking services provided. This way, should something be missing, you’ll know right away.
Buy Insurance that Will Cover All Your Valuables
You already have home insurance, but we’re talking about specific insurance that will cover all of your valuables. Insuring expensive items through moving insurance ensures that if something happens to go missing, you essentially have a backup plan. Also, it’s possible that your home insurance offers coverage on your valuables. Give them a call and find out exactly what’s covered and you may be able to save a few dollars. Regardless, though, there’s nothing wrong with adding a bit more insurance to give yourself peace of mind.
Label Your Boxes
Labelling boxes for moving is so important. Not only does labelling help for organized, safe moving, but it makes it much easier for your movers in terms of putting the boxes in the right rooms once you get to your new location. What’s also beneficial about labelling boxes is that you will know which boxes are fragile and need to be handled with a special kind of care.
