I have heard an increasing number of stories regarding lost household goods shipments. Families are left without the legs of their tables, integral pieces of furniture rendering what was delivered useless, their entire wardrobes missing and even more distressing; lost family heirlooms or sentimental items. It is not always possible, but there are items I recommend you pack yourself (and not let movers transport) but how do you prevent the majority of your household goods from being lost in transit!?
These 4 things will help decrease the likelihood of missing household goods:
3. Social Media
4. Micromanage: Do not be not be afraid to ask questions, label your own boxes and insist things are packed and managed in a certain way. Too often we don’t speak up and regret it when the move is complete.
Please share your lost boxes success or lessons learned story in the comments! Good luck moving… and may the odds ever be in your favor…
