Why You Should Supervise The Unloading Process
Moving to a new home can be both exciting and stressful. One of the important things that you need to do to ensure that you have a painless move is to hire the best moving company. Such a company will guarantee you effective packing, as well as the safety of your property during the move. Many people tend to have concerns over the level of trust they can accord their mover and occasionally ask whether it is important to be present during the unloading process.
This article provides a comprehensive discussion on why it is important to supervise the unloading process.
- Ensure that all items are unloaded: No one loves the idea of having their items stolen especially during the moving process. While it may seem obvious that you are hiring a trusted moving company, it might be hard to vouch for each and every individual member of the moving crew. Not all crew members are untrustworthy and not all of them are trustworthy. It is therefore easier to be present and supervise the unloading process to prevent theft cases by the crew from happening.

- Easily note missing items: The process of moving from one home another is hectic. It is full of activities, which need to be attended to lest the entire move becomes unsuccessful. Losing an item is not on the list of the things to do but ensuring that no item is lost is important. Hiring a reliable mover can guarantee that all your items will be handled carefully. However, some cases which might lead to loss of your belongings are inevitable. The time for unloading serves as the best time to check all the items and ascertain whether any is missing. As such, make sure that you supervise the unloading process to keep track of all your items.
- Identify any damaged items: Items being moved are subject to a lot of movements and activities that may lead to some items breaking while others suffer a few damages. It is important you identify which of your items are damaged as such information is important when making any claims to the moving company. There is no better time to check for any damages than during the unloading process. Be very vigilant during this process and take note of all the damages as the items are being unloaded. If any item appears damaged or broken, compare with the checklist, the video clips and photos you might have as evidence of the condition of your items before the move.
- Improves speed and efficiency: Naturally, some people cannot work without supervision and if they do, the work will either be of low quality or slow. When you are on a tight schedule, you would not wish to see anybody waste time. If you choose to supervise the unloading process, you can be assured that the process is completed as fast and as efficiently as possible.
Supervising the unloading process is important. However, engaging a qualified moving company guarantees you much efficiency in the entire process.
