How To Keep Your Belongings Safe When Moving

Moving to a new home or office can be both exciting and stressful. With contracts, deposits and other financial details to consider, it’s no wonder that you may struggle to keep on top of security for your belongings.

For both home and office movers, here are some simple tips you can follow to ensure your belongings stay safe from damage and theft during your relocation:


If you have decided to use a professional moving service, it’s crucial that you vet any companies you are considering. Some unscrupulous movers can scam you with hidden fees, or even refuse to deliver your belongings until you’ve paid them.

Some of the questions you should ALWAYS ask when hiring a professional moving service include:

  1. Is your moving company properly licensed?
  2. How long as your company been in business?
  3. What kind of liability coverage do you provide?
  4. Do your Calgary movers have the necessary skill and equipment?
  5. What do you consider extra services (and how much do you charge for them?)
  6. How long will the move take?
  7. How do you charge for your moving service (by hour, number of movers, or weight?)



The more planning you do before your move, the easier it will be to keep track of any security measures you might have taken along the way. If you are traveling a long distance, consider any stops en-route and check that your vehicle can be securely parked in a well-lit area with CCTV.

If you are using a moving service, confirm the pickup and drop-off times beforehand to make sure you avoid any nasty surprises.



Choosing the right packing supplies and packing your items correctly is very important for making your move as easy and safe as possible. When doing so, you may want to consider:

  • Keeping valuable and sentimental items on your person during the move.
  • Investing in high-quality packing materials to keep your belongings safe and secure.
  • Buying padlocks or ties to provide additional security for larger items.
  • Moving things in smaller amounts, if you are worried about forgetting items.

If packing correctly seems like a daunting task to you, contact Precision Movers today! Our Calgary team has the experience and knowledge to pack and handle your valuables correctly, saving you money, while ensuring your possessions are kept safe.



Once you’ve got all of your belongings to your new property, it’s important to remain vigilant. Keep all vehicles containing your valuables locked, especially if they’re left on the street.

DO NOT leave high-value items lying around as you unpack, as burglars have been known to target houses that have been recently moved into.
