Items to Keep with You When Moving to Colorado Springs

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

One of the most difficult elements of moving is generally the effort of securely transporting your keepsakes and valuables. There is no question the fact that the anxiety of making sure these treasured objects remain free from danger can be one of the hardest elements of your entire process.

While you may be tempted to simply take with you everything in your personal automobile/truck cab (clothing, personal items, electronic devices, etc.), it’s important to keep in mind that the vast greater part of your possessions have a small chance of becoming damaged or lost throughout a professional move to Colorado Springs.

Furthermore, selecting the typical moving package offered by a great many professional movers will most likely mean that you end up getting “basic liability” security that guards your goods (with more protection usually available at a supplementary cost.) With your goods insured in case of loss or damage, you may more than likely only desire to pay additional care to items of irreplaceable or emotional significance, for instance rare family heirlooms.

The below information will attempt to offer you recommendations on those belongings that you ought to keep with you for your peace of mind. Generating a small check list of critical items to keep on your person during the move will provide you with comfort and save you an additional dose of moving day tension:


No need to explain that all genuinely irreplaceable valuables in your ownership need to be held in close proximity throughout your move, if possible. This can be a not too difficult task when regarding trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. On the other hand, many movers might find themselves with antique pieces of furniture along with other important things that are on the bigger or heavier side of the spectrum.

When you find yourself having an important item which is simply too sizeable to keep on you throughout your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a corresponding mover’s insurance plan) will in all probability turn out to be best choice. Additionally be certain to note any pieces of high worth or delicate quality to the movers, to enable them to be sure to ready the appropriate accommodations.


There’s a good chance that you might be part of the countless households which have a relatively great quantity of photos. Though more and more have gone mostly digital in their photography, a teeming quantity of physical photo albums remain to tend to be standard for many.

Tangible images of legitimate significance may include baby pictures, commencement photographs, etc. It is recommended during your move to carefully consider which pictures in your collection carry immediate significance, and consider loading them carefully in a moderate sized suitcase or the like to remain with you on your trip.

Personal Belongings

Traveling light can be a relief, yet there are certain things you’ll want to be sure to remain with you in any move.These may include valuable documentation/paperwork, legal documentation, property deeds, motor vehicle registration, and verifications of identity, including social security cards and licenses.

In the instance of any plan mix-up, you won’t want to arrive in your new place without important information needed to kick off your newest venture! In addition to the essentials such as your driver’s license and bank cards, be sure to keep these items on-hand also, to circumvent any chance for them becoming lost during your moving shuffle.
