No Items Left Behind

Many people end up leaving at least one thing behind when they move. With the in and out, the last minute packing, and the sheer stress of the movement, it is inevitable that this occurs. Many times homeowners leave certain things for last that they will be using up until the day they move, and then leave without it. Here is our list of things that most people leave behind:

  • House Plants/ Outdoor Plants – these usually get left until last because there is fear of them being damaged when packed with the rest of the house.
  • Rugs – believe it or not, rugs are easy to overlook when taking the last sweep of the house! They blend in with the floor and anxious minds forget that area rugs need to go too!
  • Outdoor furniture – generally the focus is on the inside of the home, and homeowners forget that there may be some items in the back yard that they have forgotten.
  • Medication – since medication is generally used daily, this is usually something left in a cabinet for use up until moving day. It is easy to forget that they are hiding in there.

There is nothing worse than getting to your new home and realizing you left something behind. Make certain you and your movers do a clear sweep of the house before you lock the doorway behind you. Open all of the cupboards up, take a walk around the house to see if there is anything you’ve forgotten, and make a list of those necessities that you didn’t pack with the rest of your things so that they are not forgotten!
