Items to Keep with You When Moving to Killeen

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

One of the most difficult parts of moving is usually the attempt of securely transporting your mementos and valuable items. There’s no question that the anxiety of making certain these treasured objects stay safe may be one of the most challenging components of your whole process.

While you could be inclined to simply take along everything in your very own vehicle/pickup truck cab (garments, personal things, electronic products, and so forth.), it’s essential to remember that the large greater part of your belongings have a minimal risk of being compromised or lost during a professional move to Killeen.

Furthermore, opting for the regular moving package offered by a great many professional movers will often mean that you end up getting “basic liability” security which insures your things (with additional coverage normally offered at a supplementary expense.) With your things protected in the event of loss or damage, you will more than likely only want to pay extra care to items of irreplaceable or sentimental significance, for instance rare family heirlooms.

The subsequent guide will aim to provide you with tips on those belongings that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a list of irreplaceable belongings to keep on your person throughout the move will provide you with reassurance and save you a good dose of moving day tension:


Its fair to say that all truly irreplaceable items in your possession need to be kept in close proximity during your move, preferably. This is usually a not too difficult endeavor when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, and stuff like that. But, many movers may find themselves with old home furnishings as well as other important items that are on the larger or more heavy side of the spectrum.

If you find yourself having an imperative object which is simply too large to keep on you throughout your move, “maximum value” protection (or a comparable mover’s insurance policy) is likely to be your best choice. Also be certain to point out any pieces of high importance or delicate quality to the movers, to allow them to make sure to prepare the appropriate accommodations.


There’s a good chance that you may be part of the numerous households which possess a great quantity of photographs. Though more and more have gone mostly digital in their photography, a vast quantity of actual picture albums continue to tend to be common for quite a few.

Physical photos of true importance might include baby pictures, graduation portraits, etc. It is necessary as you prepare your move to think about which pictures in your assortment hold immediate importance, and think about packing them carefully into a medium sized suitcase or the like to carry on you throughout your trip.

Personal Effects

Traveling light may be a relief, but there are particular belongings you will want to be certain to remain with you in any move.These may include necessary documentation/paperwork, legal records, property deeds, vehicle registration, and verifications of identification, such as social security cards and licenses.

In the instance of any schedule mix-up, you will not want to arrive in your new area without critical information needed to begin your newest undertaking! Along with the basics like your driver’s license and bank cards, make sure to always keep these items on-hand also, to circumvent any chance for them becoming misplaced throughout your moving shuffle.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
