Items to Keep with You When Moving to Atlanta

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

On the list of hardest aspects of moving is usually the effort of safely moving your mementos and valuables. There is no question that the stress of being sure these treasured items stay safe can be one of the hardest components of your entire process.

While you could be inclined to simply take along all things in your personal vehicle/truck cab (clothes, personal things, electronic products, and so forth.), it’s essential to remember that the large majority of your belongings have a very low chance of becoming damaged or misplaced in a professional move to Atlanta.

Additionally, selecting the standard moving package provided by many professional movers will often means that you end up getting “basic liability” security which guards your possessions (with more protection normally sold at an additional fee.) With your items covered in the event of loss or damage, you may most likely simply want to pay additional care to pieces of irreplaceable or sentimental worth, such as scarce family treasures.

The subsequent information will endeavor to give you tips on those belongings that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a list of irreplaceable things to hold on your person over the move gives you reassurance and save you a good dose of moving day tension:


Its fair to say that any really irreplaceable belongings in your ownership should be held within sight throughout your move, preferably. This can be a not too difficult process when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. However, many movers might find themselves with antique household furniture as well as other valuable things that rest on the bigger or heavier side of the spectrum.

When you find yourself with an important piece that's simply too sizeable to keep with you throughout your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a comparable mover’s protection plan) will most likely turn out to be smartest choice. Also be certain to point out any pieces of special value or feeble quality to the movers, to allow them to be sure to put together the correct accommodations.


There’s a strong possibility that you might be part of the many households that have a relatively great quantity of photos. Though many have gone mainly digital in their photography, a teeming quantity of physical picture albums continue to tend to be standard for quite a few.

Physical photographs of genuine importance may include child photos, commencement images, etc. It is recommended during your move to carefully consider which photos in your gallery hold immediate importance, and consider loading them gently into a moderate sized suitcase or the like to remain with you during your trip.

Personal Belongings

Traveling light can be a relief, however there are particular items you’ll want to be certain to carry on you in any move.These can include significant documentation/paperwork, legal documentation, property or home deeds, vehicle registration, and verifications of personal identity, such as social security cards and licenses.

In the instance of any plan mix-up, you won’t want to arrive in your new location without having vital information needed to begin your latest venture! Besides the basics like your driver’s license and bank cards, be sure to have these items on-hand also, to avoid any possibility of them becoming lost during your moving shuffle.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
