An agreement with your removal service should have a tally of all the belongings being transported. Both you and the moving company should confirm everything on the list. Any defect should be included in the description.
It’s not uncommon to have customers claim that some of their items did not make it to the destination. When everyone is sure about the inventory, then it’s easier to establish liability. You should sign the inventory list before turning things over to the moving service. The movers should provide you with a copy of the list as well.
Other details to check in the contract include the name of the client and service provider, date of the move and the fees. Ensure that every term and conditions appear in the contract. If your removal service is providing storage, make certain that the contract indicates the terms. A well-written contract signed by both parties guarantees transparency during the move and keeps everyone accountable.
