  • What should I do with my jewelry and other valuable items?
    Items of extraordinary value, such as jewelry, money, antiques and stamp collections, can be included in your shipment, provided that you notify your local moving representative of these items before packing and moving day. It is strongly recommended that you carry irreplaceable and expensive articles with you or make other arrangements for their transport.

    In the moving industry, items worth more than $100 per pound are considered to be articles of "extraordinary" value. To be assured that a claim involving these articles is not limited to minimal liability, complete and sign your mover's version of a high value inventory form. Also be sure to sign the "Extraordinary (Unusual) Value Article Declaration" box on the Bill of Lading.

    Ask your Moving Consultant to provide you with an explanation of our high value items process. This is a confusing but important task, so make sure that you clearly understand the rules prior to load day.
