Moving - Items to keep with youBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

On the list of hardest aspects of moving is generally the effort of securely moving your keepsakes and valuables. There’s no question that the anxiety of ensuring these important items stay safe may be one of the most difficult aspects of your whole process.

Whilst you may be inclined to simply bring along everything in your own automobile/truck cab (clothes, personal effects, electronic devices, and so on.), it’s essential to remember that the large bulk of your belongings have a small risk of becoming compromised or lost in a professional move to San Antonio.

In addition, selecting the usual moving package furnished by many professional movers will most likely indicate that you get “basic liability” protection which guards your things (with additional coverage frequently available at a supplementary expense.) With your items covered in case of loss or damage, you may most likely only desire to pay special care to pieces of irreplaceable or emotional value, for instance scarce family treasures.

The subsequent guide will make an effort to give you recommendations on those items that is recommended you keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a small check list of essential belongings to hold on your person over the move offers you peace of mind and save you a good dose of moving day anxiety:


It goes without saying that all truly irreplaceable valuables in your ownership ought to be held within sight during your move, preferably. This may be a not too difficult endeavor when regarding trinkets, lockets, etc. But, many movers could find themselves with old pieces of furniture and other valuable things that rest on the bigger or more heavy side of the spectrum.

When you find yourself with an important piece that's too sizeable to remain with you throughout your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a comparable mover’s insurance plan) is likely to be your best choice. Additionally be sure to point out any pieces of special importance or feeble quality to your movers, so that they can be sure to prepare the correct accommodations.


There is a good chance that you could be part of the many households which have a relatively great quantity of photos. Though some have gone mainly digital in their picture taking, a expansive quantity of physical photograph albums remain to tend to be normal for many people.

Physical pictures of legitimate significance may include infant pictures, commencement pictures, etc. It is necessary as you prepare your move to think about which photos in your gallery hold immediate importance, and consider packing them delicately into a moderate sized suitcase or the like to remain with you on your trip.

Personal Items

Traveling light is often a relief, but there are specific items you’ll need to be sure to keep on you in any move.These can include important documentation/paperwork, legal records, property or home deeds, car or truck registration, and verifications of personal identity, like social security cards and licenses.

If there is any itinerary mix-up, you will not want to arrive in your new location devoid of critical documentation required to kick off your newest undertaking!
