The reasons for taking pictures when moving might be obvious, but they are worth repeating. No matter how skilled and experienced your movers are, accidents do happen. Better to be prepared, so you may be appropriately compensated for damage if that occurs.
First photo to take when moving. Before your movers show up to pack, go around your house and take pictures of everything you consider relevant. All furniture, electronics, breakables and anything else you think would be difficult and expensive to repair or replace. Do you find something has been damaged after the move is complete? Then your photos will prove that the item was damaged in transit. Сonsequently, when you can prove that you’ll be eligible for proper reimbursement by your moving company. By the way, did you know that there are apps for moving that will help you keep yourself organized from start to finish of your move? Read here – Moving Apps.
You may find this advice a bit unusual, but it has sense. Take pictures of any pre-existing damage on your belongings when moving out; (from scratches on furniture pieces and to cracks in the frame of a mirror, for example). After your move is over, you may find more or worse scratches, dents, cracks on your items that were already damaged before a move. Then your movers can’t just say that the damage was already there before they handled your items if they have done more damage to it. Anyway, now you will have visual evidence that you are right.
If you were renting an apartment and you are getting ready to move out now. Clean the area thoroughly and take many photos of your rented apartment before you move. Try to repair any damage you may have caused during your stay there and take a picture of that too. Taking pictures of your rented apartment before you can help you defend yourself against false claims of damage. It will be your proof that you did your part of the bargain and that your landlord should give you back the deposit money.
To take some pictures of the way your electronic devices are wired up when moving can save you from any possible troubles at a new place. Meaning photographs: of the back of your TV, desktop computer, stereo, Blu-Ray player, gaming console, satellite receiver. Any other electronic gadget that has all those dusty wires back there. When you have a good visual reference, it’ll be much quicker to re-connect the electronic devices properly. Just take several photos from different angles and then disconnect the cables and pack it in one bag near that device.
The last photo to take when moving. To have proof of the condition of the new apartment or house you’re moving into may help you avoid potential issues with your landlord later on. Take many photographs of the entire place before you bring in your belongings and start unpacking. Also, it is necessary to take detailed pictures of any damage that you manage to find. That will help you to avoid unfair accusation from the landlord when the time comes for you to move out in the future.
