What Items Should I Take When I Move - What Items Should I Take When I Move?

We are continuing our series of articles designed to help you determine whether or not to keep certain items or move them. It is important for you to make sure that any items that you do not plan to move are either not in your home or set aside in a designated place before the moving company arrives. You do not want your movers and packers to pack something you do not plan to take with you. Our previous articles covered some helpful ideas including determining if the item is still functional, deciding whether or not you still have a use for it, looking to see if the item is still in style, and them assessing whether or not moving it is practical.  Let’s look at a few more ideas to consider.

Is It Rare Or Valuable?

Rare or valuable items should be appraised before you determine what to do with them. Once you receive your appraisal, you may decide to sell, auction, or keep the item(s). If you don’t want to hire an appraiser, then you can also look the item up on the internet to help gauge its value.  One thing is for certain, you don’t want to be one of those people who sells an item cheap at a garage sale only to find out later that it has some value and the buyer was able to cash in on it at your expense.

Is It An Heirloom?

If the furniture is an heirloom or antique, then you definitely want to consider keeping it. If you are concerned that you will not have a place to put it in your new home or you simply do not want to move it, then you can consider gifting it to relatives to ensure it stays in the family. These items can hold sentimental value and once gone, they cannot be replaced.
