Maintaining security during a move

As the foremost providers of residential removals in Cambridgeshire, we understand that moving home can be stressful enough on its own, without worrying that your valuables are at risk. Follow these simple tips to give yourself peace of mind.

Keep your valuables close at hand

A simple solution to losing your important documents and expensive items of jewellery is to make sure you keep hold of them. Whether you fit them into the glove compartment of your car, or a bag that never leaves your side, knowing that they’re with you at all times will ease the potential stress.

Label by room, not by contents

When you pack your stuff into boxes, only you need to know that the living room is where you keep your rare vinyl, or the dining room is where you have the fine china. Label the boxes by where your belongings are going, not what they are. This reduces the temptation to a passing chancer who might risk swiping a box they know to contain all your electronic devices, because you’ve conveniently listed it on the side for them.

Keep your doors locked

This applies to your old house, as well as the new house. Sure, there will be people in and out all day, but make sure you only open the doors you need to for that part of the job. Again, an open door is an opportunity, especially if you’re busy loading up a van at the time. This applies to car doors as well, particularly the boot.
