Before The Move: Take Pictures of Your Property

Take pictures of your property before the move to prevent disputes about damaged items.

Imagine the movers have just left and you’re unpacking your belongings when you notice a huge scrape on the side of your bed frame. Or maybe your brand new computer monitor and the other items you packed with it are no where to be found. You file a claim with the moving company but they ignore you or even worse, deny any wrongdoing. What do you do at this point?

Well first off, any legitimate mover should inventory your property before the move to make sure nothing is lost. If an item ends up missing, there will be no question about its existence since it was inventoried before the move. To prevent disputes regarding potential damaged property, take photos of everything. Again, there will be no question about the source of the damage if you can prove that the item was undamaged before the move.

Professional movers go to great lengths to make sure all your belongings arrive safely and securely, so hopefully you’ll never have to file a claim. But preventive measures such as taking pictures never hurt and only protect you when certain situations occur.
