    Insurance is absolutely worth it, especially when transporting these items over long distances. Before you move, talk to your insurance provider and get all the information you need. No matter what precautions you take, unpredictable things can happen during a move. Be safe, not sorry, and insure!

  5. Keep an Inventory
  6. Again, attention to detail is an important part of keeping your items safe during a move. As simple as making an Excel spreadsheet, you should take the time to inventory your goods before you begin to pack. Keeping track of each item as well as its value and condition may seem like a big task, but it’s well worth the effort in the event that anything should go missing.

    Consider keeping a file so you can attach photos and receipts as needed. Click here for a sample inventory list.
