Why You Need Security While You Move
Posted on 2013-11-02
Keeping your possessions in order at home takes a lot of work. Keeping order gets a lot harder when it comes time for moving home. Just think about it: organising every single household item for simultaneous transport. Sure it's not impossible, but it's not easy, and there's a good chance that something will get lost, broken, forgotten, or stolen during the move, according to Protect Your Home. Your paperwork will contain a lot of information that's best kept private and confidential. Organise all your bills, account statements, and personal paperwork into a transportable filing system. Use folders to organise those papers by subject, and keep the folders together in a box. Small valuable items like jewellery and ipods are vulnerable to theft and loss during a move. Keep all jewellery in a jewellery box, and keep a close eye on it. Consider storing your jewellery box, ipod, and mp3 player in your car during a move. The same goes for television sets and electronics, not just because of the risk of theft, but also because these items are fragile, and may get damaged if they're moved in a truck. Of course the most valuable asset to a home is the people, so remember to look out for your family's personal safety. Stay hydrated while moving, use proper lifting techniques, and avoid muscle strain by carrying manageable loads.
