There are a number of items that moving companies are not allowed to legally transport during your move. It’s important that every customer understand what is safe to transport.

I would not recommend storing vital documents such as your will, birth certificate, etc. in the Memory Box. Those items should either be stored in a Safe deposit box for sale at the bank, or at home in a fire resistant box (remember, there is no such thing as a fireproof box for the home!). Some people store their vital documents in a regular file folder in their filing cabinet, and keep copies (or the originals) in a separate location. In the event that an emergency causes a very quick evacuation, the people and pets go out first, followed by the vital documents, and then the Memory Boxes.

Property insurance policies and agent contact information. You’ll need this information right away if your house suffers damage and you need to know how to file a claim.

A HTML Editor is a software application to write web pages. There are several brands in the market, including Microsoft Frontpage, Adobe Dreamweaver and so on. Personally I would encourage you not to use Microsoft Frontpage, as it tends to add proprietary codes to your pages, making it difficult to be edited with a different HTML Editor. The one I use is called Homesite, also from Adobe. I learned to write webpages with Homesite.

Many bank safety deposit boxes have two keys – one is held by you. The second (a general pass key) is kept by the bank. Only with both can the box be opened.

And that’s not to mention valuable physical items as well such as jewelry and coins and things of this nature that you may not want to keep laying around in your house.

OMisc Notes & Papers – Instead of writing on sticky notes and napkins and shoving them in your wallet, use a more efficient system for organizing your information. I explain how to use a Capture Tool to easily and efficiently keep track of misc information in my Fast-Filing Method home office filing system.
