If someone were to ask for an inventory of your home, would you be able to provide a recent, reliable list? Most people wouldn’t. Be it for insurance purposes or otherwise, it’s always a good idea to have an updated inventory of your belongings—especially if you live in Florida, where the weather can turn catastrophic with little warning. At Family Moving and Storage we offer home inventory services in the Space Coast and Treasure Coast, so you can leave the lists to us!
Inventorying your own home may seem simple, but the amount of belongings you have to catalog can quickly become an overwhelming number. Considering a move-out deadline and a thousand other responsibilities to take care of, hiring professionals to help may be in your best interest. After all, you don’t want to settle in your new space only to realize the coffee maker has been misplaced!
For insurance purposes or otherwise, keep track of:
Whether you’re moving into an apartment or purchasing a brand new home, a moving company can help alleviate the risk of leaving something behind. With our home inventory services, Family Moving & Storage can keep track of your prized possessions throughout the moving process. Moving from one place to the next is a journey with the potential for many ups and downs. Let us help you navigate the pitfalls so that you can bask in the splendor of moving somewhere new.
As mentioned before, a home inventory is not only beneficial for when you are moving. Once you have a complete list of all your belongings, you will be able to really see all of your assets. After living in the same place for years, we all tend to collect a lot more items than we had when we moved in. By having a home inventory, you can look through your list and see whether you have any valuable items that you forgot about and would like to insure. You can easily provide your personal property insurance company with your home inventory to determine what exactly is able to be insured and add it to your insurance plan. This way, you won't have to worry about having to completely replace an expensive ticket item because it wasn't insured in the case that it is ever damaged.
Having a home inventory readily accessible also makes filing insurance claims for damaged items much easier. Much like the process of getting your important items insured, you will be able to give your insurance provider a list of all of your valuable items. Forget about having to convince your provider that you really did own that professional camera or top of the line laptop! Trying to find pictures of your belongings to show your insurance will just bring you even more stress during an already upsetting time. Use our home inventory service, and relax knowing we have it taken care of.
Tired of having a cluttered garage, or spare room? A home inventory list can help. As you go through your list, you are able to identify all your important belongings versus the not so important ones. Create space by removing all your belongings you no longer use!
A home inventory can also make moving easier. Providing your movers with your inventory list will allow them to give you a proper estimate. That way you are assured that they will come with enough equipment and workers needed for your move. The last thing you want is for the moving process to take longer than needed because of incorrect planning.
On top of eliminating an abundance of moving stress, investing in home inventory services may offer peace of mind for the future. Living in Florida, you’re subject to wild weather; the morning sky may be bright, sunny, and cloudless one moment only to turn into an angry thunderstorm just a few hours later. Additionally, as every Floridian knows, there is the annual threat of hurricanes.
When under watch for hurricanes and less turbulent, yet still dangerous tropical storms, supermarkets, home supply stores, and any other available resources are flooded with locals trying to stock up on supplies. While extra batteries and non-perishables help keep people on their toes during and after the storm, these precautions don’t take into consideration the possibility of long-term material loss.
Such as with Hurricane Andrew of 1992, a Category 5 hurricane that destroyed thousands of homes and damaged countless more, a storm of this size can devastate even the most astute planners. It can be difficult to actually imagine returning home from an evacuation only to find no home standing at all if you have never experienced it. As such, some people may not consider preparing for those kinds of damages, despite the importance of a home inventory.
In any event, you’re going to want to have a home inventory to confirm your belongings are in safe, working order or to track what may have been lost or damaged. This can help you understand what needs replacing so that you can get back to normal as soon as possible. Overall, keeping records may prove a vital step when preparing for the worst.
Luckily, Family Moving & Storage is here to help you stay on top of things. With assistance, you can spend less time fretting over whether or not your kitchen appliances are accounted for and spend more time focusing on other moving day checklist items that really need your attention. We’ll inventory your home so that the morning after moving in, you’re able to sip on that cup of coffee while preparing for your day instead of running around trying to find a replacement for missing things.
With over 20 years of combined moving experience and a team comprised of professional condo, home, commercial movers, and more, we offer excellent service with happy smiles. Our home inventory services can help you stay organized during moving day to prevent missing items in transit. With Family Movers & Storage at your side, you can rest easy.
