Tips to Avoid Breaking Valuables When Moving House


Moving house can be a daunting and complicated process, and the last thing you want to worry about is breaking your valuables. With the help of Kevin’s Vans and a man with a van, you can rest assured that your belonging will make it safely to your new home.

Create a List

Before you pack up your belongings, make a list of all your belongings, so that when you reach your new house you can check that all your belongings have arrived safely. Unfortunately, it can be hard to make a list of each and every one of your belongings. Another great way to keep track of everything is to take a photo of your belongings and note which box your possessions have been put in. Again, this will allow you to check that you haven’t forgotten or lost anything. It also means you know exactly where to look for each of your possessions.

Get Help for Larger Items

This may seem like an obvious one, but getting professional help to move your larger items can make a huge difference. From your wardrobes to pianos, having a professional help move your larger items will ensure that they are moved safely to your new house, without any scratches or bumps. A man and van removal service from Kevin’s Vans can help you with the heavy lifting, so you can rest assured that all your belongings are moved safely from A to B.

Keep Smaller Valuables with You

The likes of jewellery, important paperwork and other smaller items are a lot safer if you keep them with you. By keeping smaller valuable with you, you do not risk losing them in boxes, and it allows you to locate the items with ease when you reach your new house.

Wrap Your Dishes and Glasses

When moving house, you should wrap all your crockery (plates, bowls etc.) and glasses in newspaper or bubble wrap. It is recommended that you wrap each item in a couple of layers of newspaper and stack them up together. This helps protect the items and prevents them from breaking in transit.

Tape Paintings and Mirrors

Believe it or not, putting a large cross of tape across the glass on your paintings or mirrors to protect them from shattering and causing a mess.


It is incredibly important that you insure your belongings, particularly through the moving process, so that if the worst happens, your belongings can be replaced.
