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

On the list of most difficult aspects of moving is generally the effort of safely transporting your keepsakes and valuable items. There’s no question that the anxiety of ensuring these cherished things remain safe can be one of the hardest elements of your whole process.

While you could be tempted to merely take with you all things in your personal automobile/pickup truck cab (clothes, personal effects, electronics, and so on.), it’s critical to remember that the substantial greater part of your possessions have a nominal potential for getting harmed or lost in a professional move to Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

In addition, picking the standard moving package supplied by most professional movers will often mean that you end up getting “basic liability” protection that guards your possessions (with more coverage frequently available at an extra expense.) With your possessions protected in the event of loss or damages, you may in all probability only desire to pay additional care to items of irreplaceable or emotional significance, for instance rare family treasures.

The following guide will attempt to offer you useful information on those things that is recommended you keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a check list of essential possessions to keep on your person during the move gives you peace of mind and save you an extra dose of moving day anxiety:


No need to explain that all truly irreplaceable items in your control ought to be maintained close by during your move, preferably. This may be a not too difficult undertaking when relating to trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. On the other hand, many movers might find themselves with collectible furniture as well as other valuable items that rest on the larger or heavier side of the spectrum.

If you find yourself with an essential item which is simply too sizeable to keep with you during your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a equivalent mover’s insurance policy) will most likely be your smartest choice. Additionally be sure to denote any items of high value or fragile quality to your movers, to enable them to make sure to ready the best accommodations.


There is a good chance that you might be part of the many households that have a relatively great quantity of photos. Though many have gone mostly digital in their images, a expansive quantity of tangible photo albums remain to tend to be the norm for many people.
