Ensuring You Don’t Forget Anything in a Move
Relocation can be very strenuous. Even if it is something you and your moving company have been planning for some time
and are ready to move forward on, it can still be quite taxing. Those in the military who travel
frequently or anybody who has to frequently pick up and find a new place to live understand
how difficult moving can be. In fact, moving to a new home has been considered one of the top
reasons for stress and as a result can be detrimental to your health. One of the primary reasons
for concern is fear of leaving something important behind in a move. Fortunately, it can be easy
to remember these precious heirlooms or valuables with a few simple steps.
Make a List of the Important Things
Though some stuff, such as clothing items, furniture, and basic kitchen supplies, may not be
high on the list of priorities, there may be some items you would rather know where are at all
times. No matter how often you move, it will give you a sense of peace to know the essentials
haven’t been left behind on the West Coast when you are moving east.
On top of this list should be documents and paperwork. Anything relevant to your lifestyle,
whether it is your birth certificate, automobile insurance, or even your high school diploma,
should be where you can find it at all times. Some people invest in a lock box or even use a
suitcase for those papers you don’t want to forget about. Don’t give this carrying case to the
movers: keep it on you at all times. That way, when it’s time to go, you already know it is in the
vehicle with you.
Don’t forget your medication, either. In fact, if you have a purse or bag that you can keep with
you, any medicine you need, regardless of if it is a specialized shampoo or even your inhaler,
should be with you when it comes time to travel. You don’t want to take a chance on misplacing
something you can’t live without, or having to worry about getting an emergency refill in a state
that doesn’t have your current information that your moving company can’t take care of.
For more important things, such as those items that really do have monetary value, like art or
jewelry, it may be a good idea to take out moving insurance in the event the item is ruined or
lost. Take pictures of the items beforehand, as well, so when the time comes you have that
information on hand and easily accessible.
