Moving to a new country can be exciting and fulfilling; however, the reality can often differ from Hollywood depictions. From costly visa applications to learning a foreign culture, relocation abroad brings with it many unique challenges that must be navigated successfully.

An important challenge of moving is making sure your valuables are secure during transit. Here are some suggestions on how you can do just that:

Keep it with you

If you are planning a move to Glasgow, you need to understand all your options for packing up all your possessions and transporting them safely. Depending on your individual circumstances and the quantity of stuff you have to transport, it may be beneficial to hire a removal company which offers full packing services as well as transport options.

Moving boxes will also make your move simpler and protect your items as best they can during transit. Look for sturdy ones made to meet the size requirements of your items – and remember, multiple smaller boxes is better to prevent damage or overpacking during transport.

If you plan to stay in Scotland for an extended period, some essential documents should be brought with you. These include medical records and prescription copies (especially if taking medications regularly) along with recent eye appointment appointments for glasses or contact lenses.

Store it in a safety deposit box

Safe deposit boxes provide an excellent means of safely stowing away items you don’t access often, such as jewelry, antiques, family heirlooms and passports/birth certificates.

Before placing valuables in a safety deposit box, it is wise to do your research first. Know who has access to it, what responsibilities come with being its holder and whether or not the bank offers insurance on vault contents.

Safe deposit boxes should not be used as the sole repository of documents that may become urgently or posthumously relevant, such as power of attorney and wills documents, which your dependents might need quickly after your death (e.g. to retrieve property or make decisions on your behalf), since access will require court permission and most homeowner/renter insurance policies do not cover what lies within. Therefore, before opening one yourself it would be prudent to speak with an insurance agent regarding its coverage before signing any registration papers for one.

Store it with a trusted friend or family member

Trustworthy individuals can often provide the ideal storage solutions for valuables like sentimental jewelry or important documents. Be sure to discuss how the person will store the items properly.

Write a list of your belongings you are storing, including their approximate weight and current retail value. This will come in handy should anything get damaged during your move.

Moving is a stressful time and it can be easy to lose track of your belongings in the shuffle. One way of keeping on top of everything is doing a headcount as you pack each box and keep a folder with photographs for each shipment that goes into storage – this will allow you to identify any lost or damaged items should any insurance claims need to be filed later on and also check with your home insurer to see if they offer coverage during a move.

Keep it out of sight

Leave valuables out in the open can make them vulnerable to theft, so it is advisable to recruit help from friends or family in packing and transporting your most precious items. Furthermore, if builders are working on your home it would be prudent to ask them to pack away their tools before move day arrives.

Utilizing various protective packaging materials can help keep your valuables undamaged during transit. Instead of relying on free boxes from supermarkets, opt for more reliable specialty boxes designed specifically to protect the most precious of your possessions – these could include flat-screen TVs, china and stemware pieces and expensive jewellery – as well as larger fragile objects like artwork or furniture that need protecting with cushioning for shock absorption as well as locks that ensure only you can access these pieces during their journey.
