This new guide from Movers.com explores several strategies for protecting valuable items during a long-distance move, with options for DIY moves, hiring a professional crew, or using full-service movers.
More information about packing valuables for an upcoming move, using full-service moving crews, and DIY options can be found in the full report, at https://www.movers.com/moving-guides/how-to-pack-and-move-valuable-items-long-distance.html
Although each strategy discussed in Movers.com’s latest report begins with the same few steps, which explain how to properly wrap and pack delicate items, the next steps will depend on several factors. The expert explains that families will need to decide if they trust the professional movers, and if they have another option to transport their valuables, before deciding where to place these boxes.
Movers.com’s specialists provide a list of essential and valuable items that should always be packed and transported separately, to ensure that crucial possessions are not lost along the way. This includes any expensive jewelry, sentimental items, photographs, or cash, as well as important items such as birth certificates, passports, any required medications, and other forms of identification.
Users may consider having a professional moving crew pack and handle particularly delicate items, to ensure that they are boxed safely, using professional packing methods. In situations where families have hired a professional moving crew but wish to transport their valuables separately, the report suggests either handling these boxes personally or hiring a third-party vendor.
When possible, families may want to consider getting additional insurance coverage for the duration of their move. The guide also contains a list of other strategies that can be used to ensure the safety of packages being moved by the user.
Readers can also use a no-cost tool included in the report to estimate the rates for a range of professional moving services. This simple quote tool allows readers to input basic information about their upcoming move, which is then sent to Movers.com’s pre-screened local specialists.
Applicants will receive up to 7 estimates from local moving crews, with no cost or obligation. Estimates are available for truck rentals, local and long-distance moves, and full-service crews that handle packing, transport, and unpacking in the new home.
