If your family is moving soon, you’re likely preoccupied with packing your belongings, finding a reliable moving company, and taking care of any final loose ends before your trip. But did you know that you should pack some of your belongings separately, to travel with you instead of your movers? No matter how highly rated and trustworthy your movers are, there are some personal items they simply can’t take responsibility for on moving day. The TB movers at St. Pete Moving & Storage want moving day to be as smooth and stress-free as possible for you and your family. Some items we recommend you bring with you include:
  • Cash: This may sound like common sense, but always pack your cash with you and have it nearby at all times.
  • Jewelry: Keep your gold, precious stones and diamonds with you in the car or on the plane.
  • Important Documents/Personal Credit Info: Birth certificates, passports, credit card statements, and other documents containing personal information will make you a target for identity theft if stolen.
  • Prescriptions: Even if it’s a short trip, keep your medications close at all times. Prescriptions are sought after by thieves to sell on the street.
  • Electronics: Take your smaller electronics such as tablets and laptops with you if possible. Not only will this save you from having to make a costly replacement, it will protect your personal information in the event of theft.
  • Family Heirlooms: Some heirlooms such as silver or china may be difficult to carry with you. If so, have them insured or stored in a safety deposit box.
