Whether you already use Stockpile free home inventory system at home or are just implementing it for your big move, it's quick and easy to get started. Creating individual item records and transferring each item into a location that you've created for each box you pack would be tedious and time consuming. Instead, we recommend creating item records for boxes and then listing the contents in the description field.
For example, you would create an item record Medium Box #1. In the description you would list the contents of that box with the level of detail that you feel you need to make your move easier. Now you can track that box as you move it around the house for showings and finally onto the moving truck for transport. This would be especially helpful if your move occurs in stages. Many people find it necessary to relocate to a apartment for some period of time before they move or to rent a storage unit to create a more spacious look in their home before they put it on the market. Those multiple moves can make it harder to remember which box holds what and where to find the things you need. Having records in Stockpile free home inventory system makes the entire process so much easier.
Thanks to Stockpile's mobile compatibility, you can access your records anytime from your favorite mobile device. No matter how long you're in limbo during your move, you won't have to worry about forgetting where you packed things because you'll always have easy access to the information that you need.
When you arrive at your final destination you can transfer boxes to rooms in your new home and then begin unpacking. If you already use Stockpile at home, it will be easy to transfer items to their new locations in the system. If you just tried Stockpile free home inventory system for your move, now is a great time to set up records for your home.
