Moving your most valued household items can be unnerving. If you do not take proper precautions, you may find that some of your valuables are broken when you arrive at your destination.

 

Ed’s Moving & Storage offers packing and moving services for homeowners who are worried about their valuables when they move away. Our professional movers can help you take care of your all your household items so that you don’t have to worry if they will get damaged on the road.

 

Below are some tips for taking care of your most treasured possessions. If you have any further questions or need to schedule a reservation, then contact us at (253) 581-2446.

Hire a Moving Company

Professional movers will assess your valuables and have the right sized truck, packing supplies, and tools to move all items safely. If you try to move your valuables yourself, you may find that you don’t have everything you need to keep your possessions safe and secure. You may also lack the knowledge and experience required for a smooth transition.

Choose the Right Packing Supplies

Proper packing is essential for a stress-free move. Grabbing old boxes from the local grocery store is fine for your everyday items. If you plan to use the boxes to keep your memories safe through hours or days of driving, you’re going to be disappointed.

 

The more fragile the item, the more essential it is to pack it well. Boxes get lifted, shifted and stacked throughout a long distance transport. Make sure the packing supplies you choose for your long distance move can withstand all that goes into the transport process. Ed’s Moving Storage has the packaging you need including bubble wrap, boxes, tape, and other supplies. We can also pack and load your valuable items for you.

Climate Controlled Storage

There is no substitute for climate-controlled storage. If you store your valuables in an outside unit, there is nothing to keep them from getting cracked, warped, or wet. Valuables you should consider putting in a climate controlled storage unit include:

 

●        Wooden or leather furniture

●        Special collections or keepsakes

●        Comics

●        Portraits, photo albums, or other memorabilia

●        Wine collections

●        Musical instructions

●        Artwork

●        Expensive clothing

●        Important documents

●        High-end electronics

Take Out an Insurance Policy

There are several insurance options available to you if you wish to protect your high-dollar or highly valued possessions. Most moving companies offer some insurance. You may also speak with your current homeowner's insurance provider or a third-party company that specializes in moving insurance. Shop around to see which provider can give you the best coverage at the right price.
