Finding Work: The Value of an Employment Agency

Owing to a rough economy, my employer had to cut back, and I was one of the employees that had to go. With no immediate prospects, but plenty of bills to manage, I decided to sign up with an employment agency. That decision turned out to be the best thing I could've done. The agency found an assignment for me in a matter of days. When it was completed, they had another one waiting. That second assignment led to an offer of permanent employment. If you are out of work, let me tell you about the perks of working with an employment agency. By the time I'm done, you'll be on the way out the door to sign up and get back into the work force.



4 Household Objects That You Should Transport Yourself During A Move

Hiring movers is one of the most important things you can do to simplify your move and make it easier on yourself. However, just because you are hiring movers doesn't mean that you should have them move everything. Here are four things that you should move on your own.

1. Sensitive Documents

When transporting sensitive documents it is better to be safe than sorry. You wouldn't give someone access to your bank account, but by letting someone have free reign on your personal documents, you are essentially setting yourself up for identity theft.

For this reason, you should get all of your sensitive documents out of the house before the movers come to pack you up. You can move them directly into your car, or somewhere where they will be safe. If you don't have room for them in your car, or if you are flying or something, make sure that all of the sensitive information is in a locked box. This will help to protect anything important.

2. Family Heirlooms

Some insurance companies offer insurance on belongings. This means that if they break, damage or loose anything, the company will pay for it. However, even money cannot replace important family heirlooms. If you have items that are seriously irreplaceable, do not leave them with the movers. Accidents happen; even the most careful movers might break or loose something. Thus, keep your priceless items with your at all times.

3. Jewelry

If you own expensive jewelry it is better that you keep those with you. Jewelry is hard to prove that is was stolen. It could easily be misplaced. Thus, if something goes missing, it will be hard to prove that someone took it, especially a mover. Jewelry is a target for theft, and is hard to recover. For this reason, you should have a special place that you keep your jewelry. Once again, if you can't keep it with you, keep it in a locked box.

4. Guns and Ammo

If you have guns for home protection, it is better if you transport those yourself. You cannot be sure that the movers understand how to properly handle the weapons and you don't want to be responsible for someone hurting him or herself. If you have a safe that is locked, you can keep the guns in the safe while being transported. If you do not have a gun safe, you should keep the guns with you.
