On moving day, your driver will inventory your shipment as it is loaded. An inventory is a detailed listing of your household items, including the condition of the items at the time of the moving. Make sure to double-check everything to make sure it’s correct and nothing is missing, and make sure to note the condition listing of each item. Certain items that are boxed up, like pots and pans or glasses, cannot be seen by the driver and might be marked as such (especially if you packed items yourself).
The inventory should be cross-checked upon delivery by your driver and yourself as well. Make sure to note any discrepancies in condition and point out the damage to your driver.
At Moving Services Inc., we work with only the most dependable and experienced drivers, so the inventory is mostly used as a safeguard against fraudulent claims. It is also a tool for our customers to use to make sure your items are all packed and protected.
