Items to Keep with You When Moving to San Antonio

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

One of the most challenging parts of moving is often the effort of securely transporting your mementos and valuables. There’s no doubt that the stress of ensuring these cherished objects remain free from harm may be one of the most challenging aspects of your entire process.

While you might be inclined to simply take along all things in your personal car/truck cab (clothing, personal belongings, electronic products, and so forth.), it is important to bear in mind that the large greater part of your belongings have a small chance of becoming damaged or lost during a professional move to San Antonio.

In addition, selecting the typical moving package supplied by a great many professional movers will most likely mean that you end up getting “basic liability” protection which covers your goods (with more coverage frequently offered at an additional expense.) With your possessions covered in case of loss or damages, you'll most likely only want to pay additional care to items of irreplaceable or sentimental significance, for instance scarce family heirlooms.

The below guide will aim to give you suggestions about those possessions that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Putting together a small listing of essential belongings to keep on your person over the move gives you reassurance and save you a good bit of moving day worry:


It goes without saying that all truly irreplaceable valuables in your ownership ought to be kept in close proximity during your move, if possible. This may be a relatively easy endeavor when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. On the other hand, many movers might find themselves with antique home furnishings and other valuable items that are on the larger or more heavy side of the spectrum.

If you find yourself having an important item that's way too sizeable to stay with you during your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a comparable mover’s insurance plan) will most likely become your best choice. Additionally be sure to point out any items of particular worth or fragile quality to your movers, so that they can be sure to put together the correct accommodations.


There is a good chance that you might be part of the countless households which have a relatively great quantity of snap shots. Though many have gone mainly digital in their images, a vast amount of tangible photograph albums continue to tend to be normal for many.

Physical pictures of true magnitude may include child pictures, commencement photographs, etc. It is important as you prepare your move to carefully consider which pictures in your gallery have immediate importance, and think about packing them carefully into a moderate sized suitcase or the like to remain with you during your trek.

Personal Items

Traveling light may be a relief, however there are particular items you’ll need to be certain to carry on you in any move.These may include significant documentation/paperwork, legal records, real estate deeds, vehicle registration, and verifications of identity, such as social security cards and licenses.

If there is any plan mix-up, you will not want to get to your new place devoid of critical documents needed to start your newest undertaking! Along with the fundamentals such as your driver’s license and bank cards, you'll want to always keep these items on-hand also, to circumvent any chance for them getting misplaced during your moving shuffle.
