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, if 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 alternate arrangements for their transport.
In the moving industry, items worth more than $100 per pound are 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 high-value inventory form. Also, be sure to sign the "Extraordinary Value Article Declaration" box, if applicable, on your Bill of Lading.
Each mover has a slightly different procedure to follow as it relates to high-value items. Ask your relocation specialist to provide you with an explanation of their company's process. This is a confusing (but important) task, so be sure that you clearly understand the rules prior to load day.
