The moving company has arrived, and you’re ready to move to your new home. You’ve packed all your clothes, bedding, and towels, and you’re sure they’ll make it to your new home without any trouble. But what about your valuables? Have you packed them well? Here are five tips to make sure that you’ve protected your valuables like dishes, paintings, and antiques during your move.
First, make a list of all your valuables so you don’t leave anything behind. Second, buy insurance for anything you feel needs to be protected. Moving companies offer insurance that can provide full replacement value for your items. Third, carry small valuables that you will need right away so that they can be the first items unpacked. Next, label all your boxes with the words “Fragile” and “Handle with Care” so that the movers and the moving company know to take extra care with these boxes. Finally, pack all your large, heavy valuable items in special boxes or wooden crates. Fill in any empty spaces with bubble wrap or paper to prevent these items from shifting.
If you’re unsure about how to pack your valuables, you can always contact your moving company. They will be more than happy to help you with any questions you may have. And if you’re interested, they can professionally pack your valuables for you.
