What to Do When Your Luggage Is Lost or a Piece of Equipment Breaks
When you’re moving, the last thing you want to worry about is your luggage or expensive equipment getting lost or broken. Unfortunately, these things can happen – and when they do, it’s important to know what to do. Professional Moving & Storage will discuss what to do if your luggage is lost by the movers or if they break a piece of your equipment. We’ll also provide some tips for avoiding these mishaps in the first place!
The first thing you should do if your luggage is lost or a piece of equipment is broken is to contact the moving company immediately. Let them know what happened and ask for their help in locating your belongings or getting repairs for your equipment. If you have insurance, be sure to file a claim as soon as possible.
If your luggage is lost, there are a few things you can do to try to find it yourself. First, check with the airline or other transportation company that you used to get to your destination. They may have a lost and found department where your luggage could be waiting for you. You can also check with the hotel or other accommodations where you’re staying – they may have seen your luggage or been able to track it down for you.
If a piece of your equipment is broken, you’ll need to decide whether it’s worth trying to repair it or replace it. In some cases, it may be covered by your insurance policy. If you have a warranty, that may also cover the cost of repairs or replacement. But in many cases, it’s simply not worth the hassle and expense of repairing or replacing damaged equipment – so don’t be afraid to cut your losses and move on.
