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

One of the most difficult parts of moving is usually the attempt of securely transporting your mementos and valuable items. There’s no question that the anxiety of being sure these cherished objects stay safe may be one of the most difficult components of your entire process.

Whilst you could be inclined to simply bring along everything in your very own car/pickup truck cab (garments, personal things, electronic products, and so forth.), it’s critical to keep in mind that the large greater part of your belongings have a nominal risk of being compromised or lost during a professional move to Houston.

Additionally, opting for the regular moving package supplied by a great many professional movers will frequently indicate that you end up getting “basic liability” security which insures your things (with additional coverage normally offered at a supplementary expense.) With your things protected in case of loss or damage, you will more than likely simply want to pay extra care to items of irreplaceable or sentimental significance, for instance scarce family heirlooms.

The following guide will aim to provide you with tips on those things that you ought to keep with you for your peace of mind. Putting together a listing of irreplaceable belongings to keep on your person during the move offers you reassurance and save you a good dose of moving day anxiety:


Its fair to say that all truly irreplaceable items in your possession need to be kept close by during your move, preferably. This is usually a relatively easy endeavor when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, and the like. But, many movers may find themselves with vintage household furniture as well as other important items that are on the larger or more heavy side of the spectrum.

If you find yourself having an imperative object which is simply too large to remain on you throughout your move, “maximum value” protection (or a corresponding mover’s insurance policy) is likely to become your best choice. Be certain to point out any pieces of high importance or delicate quality to the movers, to allow them to make sure to prepare the appropriate accommodations.
