An important "moving tip" is not to pack important documents or jewelry into a moving truck. It was a challenge deciding what to pack into my car for the 12 hour drive down south. I'm in a furnished apartment until I find a house. Aside from near-term essentials such as clothes, golf clubs and flipflops...I packed Doc-Boxes with vital records, current files, camera, chargers, my Dell desktop, etc... Pretty straightforward.
I packed all the costume jewelry into the truck, having taped and labeled that box "Odds and Ends, Office"
I watched it get passed from the truck to the POD, then I locked the POD... so it oughta be there when I empty it out on this end.
I mean, you can't write "Family Jewels. Silver. Heirlooms." You may as well write "STEAL ME!"
So for the box of real stuff that went into my car, I wrote 'Broken Puzzle Pieces" and howled with laughter when my friend Jill and I decided we should subtitle it, "Puzzle: Leopards lounging on leopard-print throws." That way, NO ONE would bother to open it.
Like I said, don't let your stuff define you!
