Items to Keep with You When Moving to Denver

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

Among the most difficult aspects of moving is often the attempt of safely moving your keepsakes and valuable items. There is no doubt the fact that the worry of being sure these precious objects stay safe generally is one of the hardest elements of your complete process.

While you might be inclined to merely take along everything in your own car/pickup truck cab (garments, personal belongings, electronics, etc.), it is important to remember that the vast majority of your possessions run a nominal probability of being harmed or lost in a professional move to Denver.

Additionally, opting for the typical moving package supplied by most professional movers will frequently mean that you end up getting “basic liability” safeguards which covers your things (with additional protection typically available at an extra expense.) With your goods covered in case there is loss or damages, you may most likely only want to pay special care to components of irreplaceable or emotional worth, such as rare family heirlooms.

The subsequent guide will aim to offer you useful information on those belongings that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Compiling a little listing of irreplaceable items to hold on your person throughout the move offers you comfort and save you a good dose of moving day worry:


It goes without saying that all absolutely irreplaceable items in your possession should be kept within sight throughout your move, preferably. This may be a relatively easy process when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, etc. However, many movers may find themselves with collectible furniture along with other valuable items that rest on the bulkier or more heavy side of the spectrum.

If you find yourself with an important object which is simply too big to stay with you during your move, “maximum value” coverage (or a comparable mover’s insurance plan) is likely to be your best option. Be sure to point out any pieces of special worth or delicate quality to your movers, so that they can make sure to prepare the proper accommodations.


There is a good chance that you could be part of the many families that possess a great quantity of photos. Though more and more have gone mostly digital in their images, a vast quantity of physical photo albums continue to tend to be common for many people.

Tangible photographs of genuine value can include baby pictures, commencement photos, etc. It is important as you prepare your move to contemplate which photos in your collection have immediate importance, and consider packing them carefully into a medium sized suitcase or the like to keep on you on your trek.

Personal Items

Traveling light is usually a relief, but there are certain items you’ll need to be sure to remain with you in any move.These may include significant documentation/paperwork, legal paperwork, property deeds, motor vehicle registration, and verifications of personal identity, including social security cards and licenses.

In the instance of any schedule mix-up, you won’t want to arrive in your new location without vital documentation required to begin your latest venture! In addition to the fundamentals such as your driver’s license and bank cards, make sure to always keep these items on-hand as well, to circumvent any possibility of them becoming lost during your moving shuffle.
