How to make sure that all your household items arrive safe and sound Take your valuables with you. You don't want to lose sight of your most important items. Report the loss or damage as soon as possible. Once everything is out of the truck, compare your inventory list to what has actually been delivered.
Has everything arrived at the new place? This is where it helps to have the inventory list and a full floor plan with what goes to each location. Then you can walk around the house, room by room, and make sure everything has arrived safe and sound. And speaking of boxes, make sure to open a few boxes with your most fragile items to make sure they survived the move. If Grandma Sophie's crockery and Great Uncle Claude's glasses arrived without scratches, chances are your other things would have withstood the road trip, too.
Make sure scissors and box cutters are out of reach, keep boxes with dangerous items (cleaning supplies, glass, etc.) You want to protect yourself from any potential damage to keep your house in good shape for sale, so by using thick blankets and covering corners, you can keep your home safe from any blow or bump. Labeling the boxes before the move is key, but so is planning what should be prioritized when you arrive at the new home.
