Make a Complete Inventory Before the Movers Arrive
Make a complete inventory of them and make sure you properly fill and sing the High Value Inventory sheet your moving company will provide. Should you forget, neglect or fail to fill this important document, the relocation company will be liable only for the total value of the shipment you declared and for a total of no more than $100.00 per pound per item based on the actual weight of the article. Nevertheless, have in mind that shipments under the “basic carrier liability” will not be subject to the fore mentioned loss and damage policy.
If you Can Take Them – Don’t Move Them!!
If your extraordinary value items list is short and does not include items that need to be packed and carried by professional packers and movers, one of the best moving tips is to take them along with you in a special bag or box.
This way you will be personally taking care of those valuable objects and keeping them by your side or in a protected concealed place until you have made it to your new home.
