The Importance of a Final Walkthrough Before Moving Out

Published by Webmaster

Moving from one place to another is bittersweet; as one chapter closes, another opens. When the last box is closed and you are ready to head out, don’t forget to complete one final walkthrough. The last thing you want is to realize you forgot something behind! Our moving company in Chicago, IL  always reminds our clients about the importance of a final walk-through. 

Make Sure Your Property is Damage-Free

Chaos can erupt during a move, especially if you are trying to do everything on your own. In the heat of the moment, you may have caused a scratch on the wall or accidentally nicked your doorframe with the leg of a couch. Walking through your home one last time gives you the chance to make any fixes as necessary, ultimately saving you money on your security deposit and helping new tenants enjoy their time in a damage-free place.

Keep Your Property Safe

Consider the circumstances of the property that you are leaving behind: will it be vacant for a month or two until the next tenants move in? If this is the case, check all windows and entrances to make sure that they are secured. You don’t want the elements or other critters making their way into your home. 

Tips During Your Walkthrough

Patience and having a sufficient amount of time to complete your walkthrough are both extremely important. If you feel rushed, you won’t be able to get a proper look at the space, possibly missing something important. You should also consider taking a toolbox with you in case you need to make any last-minute fixes. 

For a high-quality moving company in Chicago, Il, our team at Aaron Bros Moving System, Inc. is here to help from the initial packing process to the final walkthrough.
