This was one of those questions that we could truly not find an answer on prior to our move. We knew it was not safe to pack into moving boxes items such as videotapes, candles and crayons; items that would melt in transit. But what about photographs? We read conflicting answers and to be safe, we decided to pack in the car the family pictures that we did not have a digital copy of. It took up quite a bit of trunk room, and it really was a hassle trying to re-pack the trunk every morning, but as the pictures are irreplaceable, we felt the effort was worth it.
Today as we unpacked some boxes, we came across the few albums we did pack, and as it turns out, the pictures were just fine. If we had to do it again, we would pack all the pictures. We wanted to share this information with our readers, as we know a few of you are planning to relocate to Florida, and we hope you might find this information helpful.. 🙂
