What is an invisible home removal? Well, the world is not as perfect as we like to imagine it is and when conducting a home removal there is a chance to become a target of the less righteous. Theft and break-ins quite frequently take place when someone is moving out and this is because it is common knowledge that during a home removal people are in and out of the home unloading and loading. These tasks take time and if someone with negative intentions take notice of this then the result is usually a break-in while you are away unloading. To prevent becoming a target of theft, there are some precautionary measures that should be taken.
Making that fact that you are moving is the first thing that should be done. Just let people that have to know that you are moving privy to the fact and even then you don’t have to give them a specific day that the move will take place. Only let those that are in your trust circle know about the move too, if someone out of the blue asks you the specific day and time the move is happening don’t answer the question.
Keeping the blinds closed if on the bottom floor where people can see right in the home is something that should always be done. This way random passerby’s cannot see into the home and what is going on. 70% of break-ins are spur of the moment occurrences from opportunists. So don’t give anyone an open invitation, like leaving the door wide open.
Making multiple loads is something else that can lead to a break-in as people will see you coming and going at certain time intervals. They will notice things like loading for 1 hour, gone for 1.5 hours. This will lead them to the conclusion that it takes 15 minutes to get to the destination and 45 minutes to 1 hour to unload giving them a guaranteed 30 minutes to rob someone blind while they are unloading. 30 minutes for a robbery is more than enough time for a burglar to get all the items of value from a home.
Sometimes multiple trips to unload and load just cannot be avoided. If this is the case then make sure to have multiple people involved in the move and have everyone going in and out of the home to load the truck or car. This way everyone involved is seen, so if someone is watching when they take their headcount of how many people are there and then their headcount for how many left, they will see that there are still people at the home. Oh yeah… you will want to leave two people in the home to watch over things.
The best way to avoid multiple trips is too hire a moving company that can get everything moved in one load. This way there will be no going in and out of the home and leaving to unload and load again. You don’t even have to do any of the loading in this case; the moving company will usually take care of this.
