Important Papers to Keep Together for Your Move

It’s really easy to lose track of items during a move. When these items are important papers and documents, your search can go from annoying to extremely problematic in a hurry.


Organizing and packing important papers may not be the most exciting task, but it can save you a lot of headaches when you know where all of your documents are in your new home. Here are some important papers you should keep together for your move.

Personal Identification Documents

You may always carry your driver’s license around, but it can be really easy to forget where you put some lesser used items. Store official documents like birth certificates, passports, social security cards, marriage certificates, and other like papers together so that you know where they are. You’ll also want to start separate folders for each member of your family, because your kids likely won’t.

Financial Documents

It’s always important to keep track of your money. Saving financial documents will allow you to refer to past information in case you ever need to. Keep a file of papers like bills, bank statements, loan information, and anything else you might need in the future.

School Records

Once again, your children aren’t going to store their information on their own. Collect any important school records, such as copies of school transcripts. This will be important if you need to enroll your kids into a new school after you move.

Medical Records

Don’t forget to gather all of your important medical documentation. Visit your doctor before you move to get whatever documents you may need, such as vaccination histories, special medical needs, and other items. This also goes for your pets, as well. Check with your veterinarian to collect copies of any appropriate records or certificates.

Moving Company Documents

When you’re getting ready to move, you’re going to collect a few more important documents from your residential moving company. Hold on to papers like your moving contract, estimate, and inventory list so that you can keep track of your move.
