Moving The Wrong Items Can Be Costly

Moving can be a hectic time with closings, inspections, and the physical move all happening in a short period of time. The last thing you want to do is to pay the moving crew to unload the truck before you move in order to get items that were placed into the truck by error. It does happen, and it is an expensive mistake. And it creates scheduling problems that can delay your move. The bottom line? Moving the wrong items can cost you.

What Not To Pack When You’re Moving

The personal items listed out below should not be placed on the moving truck:

  • Jewelry
  • Money
  • Wallets
  • Credit cards
  • Checkbooks
  • Passports and birth certificates
  • Important bank documents
  • Insurance documents
  • Airline or other tickets
  • Laptop computers
  • Cell phones
  • Medications

It is critical to safeguard these possessions on move day so they don’t become part of the goods that go onto the
truck.

Make Sure Personal Items Don’t Get Loaded By Mistake
What is the easiest way to prevent packing and moving the wrong items? Make sure personal items are not in the house on moving day. Here’s how:

  • Let a neighbor or friend hold personal items for you.
  • Place them in the locked trunk of your car.
  • Place them in the master bathroom or master bedroom closet. Close the door on moving day. Place a sign on the door that says: “Do Not Open – Nothing in here is to be packed or placed on the Moving Truck.”

If you follow these simple tips, your move will be smoother and more efficient.
