If you’ve hired professional movers, the thought of having experts who can handle all the packing for you might bring a great deal of relief. It should, however, as moving day approaches you might start to consider items you’d rather pack yourself. Many moving experts recommend doing some pre-move packing, both to save you money and to avoid unnecessary embarrassment or stress. Such items can include:
Even if you’re hiring some of the most trusted movers in the industry, it’s still a good idea to care for your valuable jewelry yourself. You might even carry these items with you if possible, that way you always know where they are, and you don’t risk loss during the shuffle of relocation.
2. Important Documents
It’s a good idea to gather all of your important documents including birth records, tax returns, passports, and insurance information prior to moving day. Store these in a safe place that you can get to easily, because you never know when you might need them. Such documents are easily lost during a move, and replacing them can be difficult.
3. Personal Items
Are there personal items you’d rather not have strangers handle? You can easily pack your intimate clothing pieces and other personal items yourself, just make sure you ask for quality packing materials to ensure your belongings are kept safe.
4. Non-Fragile Items
You might save some time and money if you pack simple items yourself. This can include non-fragile items like clothing, blankets and pillows, books, and seasonal items. Just remember that movers generally do not accept liability for belongings that were packed by customers, so you might want to leave fragile and high-value items to the professionals.
5. When You Need a Florida Moving Company
As mentioned above, most movers to not accept responsibility for damage or loss unless they packed the items themselves. To make sure your belongings are properly packed, protected during transportation, and insured against moving mishaps, consider allowing your moving crew to pack the following:
- Expensive Electronics
