Things you must move on your own when Shifting

You may have collected over a long period a massive number of items that have acquired emotional associations. Those items may be your prized possessions, and you guard them zealously because of their market value with added sentimental value. Organizing and sorting out such belongings may indeed be overwhelming, if you are moving house anytime soon.

You need to be careful when you pack all your belongings to ensure safe transportation and continued use for several more years. It is best to hire a moving company with great credentials, who would be the right people to handle with care all your belongings during packing, moving and unpacking; their well-trained staffs have the right expertise and the safest moving equipment for a fully satisfying relocation.

However, there are a few extremely crucial things that you need to move on your own.  For instance, folders that contain all your vital documents or jewelry inherited from your grandmother with enormous sentimental value just cannot be left to the chance of damage or loss. Here is a list of things you must move on your own:

1. Important documents

While no one is going to damage your files or documents on purpose, it is best to be on the safe side. If your documents are in a separate binder, make sure you put them securely in a lockbox. They should be together with your other important documents such as driver’s licenses, passports, school and medical records, insurance policies, and the like. Also, make sure you keep the document box in your custody. Furthermore,   double-check your car keys or plane tickets if you are taking a flight.

2. Jewelry

Jewelry can be very expensive: it is a major reason why it can mysteriously disappear at any time of the moving process – packing, loading, transporting, unloading or unpacking. It is, in fact, very easy to misplace or lose a tiny brooch or ring in the moving melee and never find it again.

It may be difficult to believe but several home movers finish up packing – their valuables along with their other entire household items, and discover missing items after relocation.

3. Electronics

Did you know? Expensive electronic gadgets are at the top of the list of items lost/stolen during a move. So, make sure you keep with you digital camera, laptop, smartphone and other similar expensive devices.

It is best to research beforehand and hire a professional moving company with a good reputation. Such companies are reliable and safe indeed. However, delicate jewelry like bracelets, earrings and necklaces may get tangled suffering damage or electronic gadgets like laptops and music systems may easily get tossed up during transit, leading to major repairs.

Therefore, you would do well to be very careful to pack all your precious belongings and move them on your own. There is no doubt that you will be able to handle them quite competently with a lot of care and find them all safe at the new location.
