There are so many details you need to think about when it comes to moving. Making sure that you properly plan and organize is key for your move to be nice and smooth. As you start planning you may wonder how on earth you are going to move your valuable items. Valuable items may be monetarily valuable, emotionally valuable, or both. Many times our most valuable belongings cannot be replaced. Today Prodigy Moving & Storage is going to talk about how to move some of these items to ensure they arrive safely at your new home.
Inventory Household Belongings Before Moving
First you should make an inventory of all of your belongings. Many people choose not to do this with every item in their house and just do it for their more valuable items. When you do this you will want to document each item, take pictures of them, and take notes on anything that you feel should be noted about the item. Then if anything happens to these items during the move you can easily make an insurance claim on the item.
Moving Insurance Protection
You will want to make sure that you have insurance for your move. Sometimes your homeowner’s insurance will cover your belongings in a move. If you hire a moving company make sure that they are insured. Prodigy Moving is fully license and insured. You can rest assured that if you hire us our moving insurance will take care of any issues that may arise.
Essential Moving Supplies
Next you will want to make sure that your valuable items are packed with extreme care. You need to purchase high quality moving supplies for these items. You will need bubble wrap, packing paper, and moving pads. When you pack these items it is best of be overcautious. If you are not sure if an item needs one more layer of bubble wrap we recommend just putting that layer on for good measure.
Label Boxes with Valuable Items as Fragile
Once you do have them boxed up properly you will want to label them as fragile. When people are helping you move and they see the word fragile they will know that the contents are delicate and they will handle them appropriately. When you are packing your valuables you may find that these items needs specialized boxes. Many times homeowners opt not to purchase the correct moving boxes because they can be expensive. If you remind yourself of how much the item that is going inside the box is worth hopefully it will encourage you to spend the money on the box that will adequately work for your valuable items.
