20 Things You Should Always Pack Separately

San Diego’s Movers, Move Central’s list of 20 things you should always pack separately when moving.  Why? Because even though Move Central, Inc., is one of the most trustworthy moving companies in San Diego, we always recommend that you pack special personal valuables separately and carry them with you in your own vehicle when moving.

There are a few reasons for this: Number one, you will have better access to these items when you reach your destination, and some of these items are frequently needed, so you probably won’t want to dig through a pile of boxes to find them. Number two, you will have better control over the conditions these items travel in, so you can ensure they don’t get too hot or too cold. And number three, most people just feel more comfortable keeping their personal items close by.

Here is a list of 20 things our San Diego movers suggest taking with you in your own vehicle:

  1. List of important addresses and phone numbers
  2. Plane and/or event tickets
  3. Property titles (house, car, boat, etc.)
  4. Money, credit cards, and checks
  5. Mobile phones and devices
  6. Computer hard drive/USB drives
  7. Photo albums/family portraits
  8. Personal, medical, and financial files and records
  9. Safes and lockboxes
  10. Home videos
  11. Data disks
  12. Insurance information
  13. Fine jewelry and other small valuables
  14. Furs and other delicate fabrics
  15. Car keys/house keys
  16. Laptops or computers
  17. Lease agreement or home documents
  18. Daily medications
  19. Important work files
  20. School records

Remember, this list is not all-inclusive, but it will give you a pretty good start when thinking of what items you should pack separately and transport in your personal vehicle when moving. Whether you are moving in San Diego or across the country, we hope this checklist makes your move a great one.
