As an inspector sometimes you need to decide if you should move something in the house during an inspection. My preinspection agreement states that I do not move furniture and such. I have been known to slide a couch or table a foot or two to get at an outlet or whatever, moved a box or two to get at an appliance or electricail panel. But you have to draw the line somewhere. Though I am a big guy(6'5", 280) I do not move heavy objects or appliances(two Back Operations). Also if you move something in the house and break it or scratch a floor you could get sued. Some agents do not prepare the sellers for the inspection and it would be nice if they did. It makes it difficult when the dryer is sitting on top of the crawl space hatch or you need to clean out a closet to get to attic or crawl space. Granted we are there on the buyers behalf but we are inspectors not movers.
In the back left corner of the garage behind some matresses is the electricial panel and directly above the SUV is the attic hatch. The sellers are out of town and there were no keys.
