No doubt, it is an energy draining process which can only be managed by professional packers and movers.

intercity relocation mistakes

And that’s the reason why many of you end up making mistakes during intercity relocation. Do you know what mistakes I’m talking about? If not, below I’m going to list down few common mistakes which you make while relocation.

Make sure to thoroughly read each mistake and avoid making them. Let’s now make a start.

Avoid given mistakes while moving to a new city

✘ Giving a cold shoulder to an inventory list

The first mistake which you could make while making a move to another city is – giving a cold shoulder to inventory list. What does it mean? It means ignoring to prepare an inventory list which is essential for your move. An inventory list helps you record number of items, boxes, products, delicate items, and much more you’re moving to a new place. In case, you forget to prepare a list then a moving company will help you do so.

✘ Not getting transit insurance

Another mistake people generally make is that they don’t ask for transit insurance. Of course, when you move to a new city, you’ll surely need professionals help for which you’ll hire packers and movers. Now some companies provide insurance coverage if item gets damaged during transportation, and some companies don’t. So, you have to ask company whether they provide you insurance transit or not. It basically makes the process less complicated and you don’t be in loss.

✘ Packing important documents with transferable items

Now this is the big mistake you seriously make. Who keeps important documents with the items which are transferred by movers? It is really a bad idea to keep important documents or items with transferable goods. Below I’m enlisting important items which you must carry on your own:

  • Wallets/ handbags
  • Passport/travel documents
  • Cash/credit card/ bank passbooks
  • Property/ insurance paper
  • Mobile phones
  • Camera
  • Personal digital assistance
  • Portable music player
  • Coin collections

And the list goes on and on. Don’t forget that these items are most valuable and if you lost them during transit, what you will face later would be costly and breaking heart.

✘ Packing irrelevant items

Do you want to make your intercity relocation easy going? Yes, then why not leave unwanted items behind. Moving is actually an amazing time to get rid of unwanted or items you don’t want any more. For that, you must create a checklist of important items that will help you in packing items that you want to take away with you.

✘ Unclear transit time

 If you’re not sure about the transit time as when you’ll be leaving for relocation then it will create problem for you as well as for moving company. You need to give them proper details about the transit time. Generally, what happens is that your belongings reach on time, and shortly after you do. In case, you get late while reaching then how you will manage your inventory. That’s why you need to confirm with movers about the time of delivery at your destination.
