Unless you want half of your office supplies to vanish in the move, then having a home moving checklist is essential. I lost my printer, pens, log books and other vital supplies for my business, all because I did not take the necessary precautions.
See, you are supposed to follow certain steps when you move, but like a jerk, I failed to heed the advice of my friends. You are supposed to take different movers through all of your house to get a proper estimate, compare the different estimates when everyone is all said and done, and then you decide who to hire. After, you make a home moving checklist of what you take, what the movers take and of the total inventory.
What I did? I tell you this just so you can learn from my mistake. I hired the cheapest mover without getting a proper estimate, and failed to look at the better business bureau to see if anybody had complained about them. Sure enough, a lot of my things “went missing” or were “lost in transition.”
You can find a great moving checklist template online, too, to make it easier for you. So, please, I know taking the advice of an anonymous stranger online might be a bad idea, but seriously, if you plan to make a big move, make a home moving checklist.
