Estate Cleanout Services

It’s never easy when a loved one passes away, especially if there’s an estate involved. Here at HuberWilmot Moving, we can provide estate cleanout services so your family can focus on what’s important. From unpacking to packing, loading and unloading, our movers are professionally trained to handle family heirlooms and antiques.

Our expertise in handling local and long-distance moves in Northern VA means that our team is equipped to make sure that the items your loved ones leave behind make it to their new home, with family, safely.

Northern Virginia Estate Distribution Services

Every estate is different, and multiple items may be shipped to different parts of the country or even the world. What can you expect when you reach out to HuberWilmot? When it comes to estate services, we follow this protocol:

  1. You can schedule a free estimate for an in-home visit or a Live Stream Video Estimate with one of our team members.
  2. During the estimate process, our moving  and storage advocates makes a full inventory of items that need to be moved, as well as the addresses of their final destinations.
  3. Our movers can help you pack and organize your belongings on moving day as well as wrap large furniture for protection during transport.
  4. On moving day, we will load your belongings into one of our moving trucks for shipment.
  5. Items from your family member’s estate will be shipped. During delivery, someone must be present to confirm that the shipment has arrived safely.

No matter how big or small of an estate, HuberWilmot’s professional moving service wants to be there for our Northern Virginia movers and their families’ estates. 

Managing Estate Shipping & Distribution

Because estate moving is different from traditional moving, you may be wondering what specific estate services are offered. Each family is going to have different estate moving needs, and that’s why we’ve compiled a variety of services for just estate movers, including but not limited to:

  • Single location pick-up with multiple delivery locations
  • Special packing and handling services for furniture, fragile items, and sentimental heirlooms
  • Furniture shipping service
  • Home protection kits for moving day and delivery
  • Storage and distribution of valuable items

We take care of our customers and the items that mean the world to them like they’re part of our families. 

Pickup & Delivery of Charitable Donations

During the estate move, if any items need to be donated, we can take care of that as well. All you need to do is separate the items accordingly, and we will drop them off at a nearby donation center around Northern Virginia.

Estate Decluttering Services

If you’re going through items in the estate, and find that you still have plenty leftover from an estate sale, HuberWilmot can take care of the rest. Our movers will help you dispose of anything that was left unwanted, or deemed no longer useful, during the moving process so you don’t have that unnecessary stress.

Did you know...?

What is an Inventory?

The driver will generally inventory your shipment as he or she loads it (although it is not required by law). When completed, the inventory provides a detailed, descriptive listing of your household goods, along with the condition of each item when received by the mover.

Be sure that everything listed on the inventory is correct. This is not always the easiest task, as you will find things written on the inventory such as “PBO,” which means “packed by owner.” The contents of this carton cannot be listed, as the driver is simply not able to see inside each box. You will also sometimes find “CP” on a line item in the inventory, which means “carrier packed” container.

You may also notice, in the middle column on your inventory form, a line that has many seemingly random letters and numbers associated with a specific item. This is where a driver uses inventory code to make note of the condition of an item. To understand this code, you can refer to the top of the inventory sheet for a legend that will explain what each code means. For example, SC means scratched; C means chipped; the number 3 refers to the right side of piece; and 8 refers to the top of the piece. This is a simple (and consistent) way for the driver to make note of any irregularities or existing damage.

Remember, this inventory is for you to keep track of what is loaded, and the condition of each item. If damage occurs on a certain piece during the loading process, make a note of the inventory tag number on that item and indicate it in the far-right hand column on the line that corresponds with that piece. This is the document that will be scrutinized when the claims process is initiated, so it is important to have the damage clearly noted.

This inventory should also be used at-destination when your shipment is delivered. Use the inventory to verify the articles that are delivered and, again, note an exception to the condition of any items as they are brought into your home. Point out the damage to the driver.

What often occurs is that a piece of furniture has been in your home for many years and you grow accustomed to looking at it in a certain place and in a certain light. When you bring that same piece into your new home, you may notice damage that may have been there for a long time. The driver will have noted the scratch or chip at your origin residence. If you are not sure if it was existing damage or new damage, ask your driver to explain the condition of the piece as he noted it on the inventory during the loading process. This is the quickest way to distinguish new damage from what was there all along.

Our drivers are incredibly careful about the way they handle your items, and the inventory is their safeguard against potentially fraudulent damage claims. Use this inventory to your advantage in making sure that you are protected, just as the driver uses it to protect himself or herself.
