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 challenging aspects of moving is often the effort of safely transporting your keepsakes and valuables. There is no question that the stress of making sure these precious things stay free from danger generally is one of the most difficult elements of your whole process.

Although you may be tempted to essentially take with you everything in your own vehicle/pickup truck cab (clothing, personal belongings, electronic devices, and so forth.), it is essential to keep in mind that the vast bulk of your possessions run a minimal risk of becoming compromised or lost during a professional move to Denver.

Additionally, picking the usual moving package supplied by a great many professional movers will often mean that you get “basic liability” security which guards your possessions (with increased coverage typically offered at an additional expense.) With your possessions insured in the event of loss or damages, you may most likely only desire to pay additional care to components of irreplaceable or sentimental significance, for example scarce family heirlooms.

The below information will aim to provide you with suggestions about those possessions that you should keep with you for your peace of mind. Putting together a small listing of critical possessions to keep on your person during the move gives you comfort and save you an additional bit of moving day tension:


Its fair to say that all genuinely irreplaceable items in your control need to be maintained within sight throughout your move, preferably. This may be a not too difficult undertaking when when it comes to trinkets, lockets, etc. However, many movers may find themselves with antique pieces of furniture along with other important things that rest on the bigger or heavier side of the spectrum.

When you find yourself having an imperative piece that is too large to keep with you throughout your move, “maximum value” protection (or a corresponding mover’s insurance plan) will in all probability be your smartest choice. Also be certain to note any items of special importance or delicate quality to the movers, to allow them to be sure to prepare the appropriate accommodations.


There’s a strong possibility that you may be part of the numerous families that possess a large quantity of snap shots. Though many have gone mainly digital in their picture taking, a expansive quantity of actual photograph albums still tend to be the norm for quite a few.

Tangible pictures of legitimate value might include baby photos, commencement portraits, etc. It is recommended throughout your move to carefully consider which photographs in your collection carry immediate importance, and consider loading them gently into a medium sized suitcase or the like to remain with you on your journey.

Personal Belongings

Traveling light is usually a relief, but there are specific things you will want to be certain to carry on you in any move.These can include important documentation/paperwork, legal records, real estate deeds, motor vehicle registration, and verifications of identification, such as social security cards and licenses.

In the event of any schedule mix-up, you won’t want to get to your new location without significant information necessary to begin your newest undertaking! Beyond the basics such as your driver’s license and bank cards, make sure to have these items on-hand also, to prevent any chance for them becoming lost throughout your moving shuffle.
