Tips for a Home Inventory after Your Move

After moving to your new home, it is normal to feel exhausted. But do not settle down just yet. It is necessary that you unpack your items first so that you can do your home inventory. This is your way of determining if or any other mover that you hired has delivered all the items loaded on the truck and that your items have not been damaged during the move.

What should you do while the people from your hired moving company are still present?

As the owner of the items that the movers moved, you will usually have the honors of ticking items off in the inventory sheet as the movers unloads them from the truck and into your new home. You need to make sure that you do not get distracted as you do this. There will be instances when the task becomes confusing because different movers can simultaneously bring items into your home. What you can do to avoid this confusion is to position yourself by the front door and instruct the movers to enter one at a time so that you can properly check the items in the inventory sheet. Mark any items that are missing and do not forget to call the attention of the mover. You should only sign the sheet when you are sure that every item loaded in truck from your old home has been delivered to your new home.

You need to make sure that you carefully check your appliances and furniture to ensure that none of them have been damaged, scratched or are missing any items or parts. Do not rush when you do this and if you can get somebody to help you out with this task then do not hesitate to divide the task between the two of you. It will certainly be easier to look for any missing items or boxes when the movers are still present. You can also bring to their attention any damages that you have noticed during the inventory.

What should you do after the movers leave?

As you unpack your boxes, make sure that you keep your paper and pen handy so that you can easily take note of the items in the boxes that have been damaged. Even though you have already inventoried damages to items when the movers were still around, there is no way that you and the movers were able to check all the items of every box.

Friends and family often lend a helping hand and if they are, make sure that they are also taking note of any damages that the items might have gotten during the move or if anything is missing from the boxes. You can do this by giving them an inventory sheet of the contents of the box. You can later check the damages that they were able to take note of.

If you have noted any missing or damaged items, make sure that you contact your mover right away. Failing to do so can prevent you from making a claim for the damaged or missing items since you waited too long before deciding to report it.
