Items to Keep with You When Moving to Atlanta

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

One of the hardest parts of moving is often the effort of securely transporting your keepsakes and valuable items. There is no doubt that the stress of ensuring these important things remain safe and secure can be one of the most difficult elements of your whole process.

While you could be inclined to merely take with you everything in your very own automobile/truck cab (clothes, personal belongings, electronic devices, and so forth.), it is essential to keep in mind that the large bulk of your belongings run a nominal likelihood of becoming broken or misplaced during a professional move to Atlanta.

Furthermore, selecting the standard moving package supplied by most professional movers will most likely mean that you end up getting “basic liability” security which insures your items (with additional protection commonly sold at an additional fee.) With your possessions insured in case there is loss or damages, you will in all probability only desire to pay extra care to items of irreplaceable or emotional significance, for instance unique family treasures.

The below guide will attempt to offer you recommendations on those belongings that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a list of irreplaceable belongings to keep on your person over the move will provide you with peace of mind and save you a good amount of moving day tension:


It goes without saying that all absolutely irreplaceable items in your ownership should be kept in close proximity during your move, most certainly. This can be a not too difficult endeavor when relating to trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. But, many movers might find themselves with vintage home furnishings as well as other important things that rest on the larger or more heavy side of the spectrum.

When you find yourself with an imperative object that's simply too sizeable to stay on you during your move, “maximum value” protection (or a equivalent mover’s insurance policy) is likely to become your best choice. Also be certain to denote any items of high significance or delicate quality to the movers, to allow them to make sure to put together the proper accommodations.


There is a strong possibility that you could be part of the numerous households that have a relatively large quantity of snap shots. Though more and more have gone mainly digital in their photography, a expansive quantity of tangible picture albums remain to tend to be common for quite a few.

Tangible photographs of legitimate magnitude may include infant photographs, graduation images, etc. It is necessary as you prepare your move to carefully consider which photos in your collection hold immediate significance, and think about loading them gently into a medium sized suitcase or the like to remain with you during your trip.
