Moving Special Items

Now that you have decluttered your home it is time to start packing. As you are going through and packing your home, it is a good idea to make note of certain items that will require special attention when moving. This could include:

  • Pianos
  • Large TV's 
  • Large pieces of furniture that cannot be disassembled 
  • Live plants 
  • Antiques and collectables 
  • Pieces of art

Once you have a noted all of the items you can begin to make arrangements for when and how you will move these items. We have included a printable "Special Care" list should you choose to use to it. 

While you are already going through your home, it is also a good idea to take this opportunity to create a Home Inventory of all of your belongings. Note any dents and scratches the items may have. Creating this list may seem like an unnecessary hassle right now, but in the event of an emergency it could save you thousands of dollars. 

Use an app to record your Home Inventory. View our list of recommended apps here.

If you would prefer to complete your home inventory on paper rather than on an app, we have included a printable version for you here.
