How to relocate safe & secure?

Relocation is not easy. There are no two ways about it. When you’re relocating to a new place, you’ve got a plethora of things running in your mind already.

And the whole process of relocation just adds to the stress. There’s no guarantee that relocating your precious goods can be done safely and securely. Or is there?

Let’s take a look at five ways to relocate securely:

Store the crucial things

If there are small but important items that you won’t need right away, consider putting them in a safe deposit box or self-storage until you’ve settled into your new place. Items like important documents, expensive jewellery or family heirlooms can be locked away so that there are fewer chances of losing them.

Take inventory in advance

It’s easy to lose track of things when you relocate. It can take a while to unpack and find everything; this can be a problem when it comes to valuables. Make a list of valuable items and take detailed pictures of them so you have proof of ownership in case they’re lost. You can even make a simple spreadsheet with names of the objects, box numbers, time of packing and arrival. This will allow you to relocate securely and systematically.

Keep the valuables with you

Alternatively, the important small stuff—papers, medicine, jewellery, that are easily lost or misplaced — can stay in your vehicle with you. Carry them in a bag and don’t let them out of your sight. There are several options for unique items like artwork that operate with a key. You can consult the company that’s providing you with the relocation services to help you map out the specifics.

Consider tracking

Tucking a small, inexpensive tracking device into a box can show you where your valuables end up. The different types of trackers have various limitations so you’ll want to do your research. Again, your relocation service provider can help you achieve the same.

Don’t talk about your move on social media

Don’t publicize what you’re moving or when and where. You don’t know who sees what you post to social media—even if you think your account is limited to just friends. Wait and show off your new place at a housewarming party after you’re settled in.

Though relocation is always challenging, proper planning can both help you keep your valuables safe and also relieve some of the inevitable stress.

How to choose the best packers and movers for you


Life is unpredictable. One day you’re chilling in your room and the next day you learn that you need to move to a new place.

For a job, pursuing studies, or personal issues – whatever may be the reason, it’s not easy leaving your home all of a sudden and move to a new place that you know nothing about.

The tiring process of packing, labelling, loading/unloading your stuff is gruesome. But you do not have to bear the burden.

You can simply choose packers and movers to help carry the load of moving.

Once you’ve decided to choose a professional service, you’ll probably be confused about how to pick one that suits right for you.

Well, that’s what we’re going to help you figure out.

Below are the easy steps to choose packers and movers who will help you with your move.

Browse the internet

Compare quotes

Requesting quotes directly from the packers and movers is a key step in choosing the best service. A good way to analyse companies using their quotes is to obtain a list of the exact services and cost breakdowns included in the estimate. But be wary of the packers and movers who provide extremely low-cost estimates and also of the websites claiming steep prices to appear premium.

Ask the right questions

Finally, prepare a list of questions to ask when you visit prospective packers and movers at their office. Do not shy away from asking as many questions as you like – the more answers you have, the easier it would be for you to choose them. In particular, find out details about the crew, the service guarantee, and the insurance arrangement. Also, make sure they give you a detailed timeline for the process.
