How to make sure that all your household items arrive safe and sound Take your valuables with you. You don't want to lose sight of your most important items. Report the loss or damage as soon as possible. If you're moving a long distance away or need to store your belongings for some period of time, renting a storage unit may be a good option.
Most even offer access to your items 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Be sure to choose a storage unit that is clean and dry, and that has security features, such as a coded entrance, lockable doors, anti-theft alarms, and working video cameras. If you have any large pieces of furniture that are particularly valuable or sentimental, you may want to hire a moving company to transport it. This will ensure that they move safely and securely.
If you have moving insurance, contact your insurer to start the claims process. You'll also want to talk to your insurance agent about what coverage your renters insurance or homeowners insurance provides in this situation. Baggage is made for packing and transporting, so use it to your advantage. Use suitcases to pack items that aren't easily transported in boxes or to keep valuables and bulky items safe.
A good plan will ensure that your move is on track, alleviate some stress, and help you get through the entire moving process with little or no frustration.
