Moving even the most mundane items from your home--like clothing, books, and kitchenware, for example—requires a certain amount of planning and expertise to handle correctly. However, moving specialty items, like large or heavy items, delicate and fragile belongings, and luxury items from your home can be particularly challenging.
That last category—luxury items—covers a wide spectrum of household goods, from jewelry and paintings to valuable artwork and fine cars. While some luxury items are fairly tough and resistant to damage, protecting them during the move is still important. This is especially true in the case of long-distance moves. The longer your belongings are in transit the greater the potential for damage to occur.
If you’re planning on relocating and wondering what to do with your luxury items, Harrington Moving & Storage can help. Take a look at this guide to some of our most commonly requested specialized moving solutions designed to keep your items safe during your next household relocation.
Moving your high-value items requires a personalized solution, as valuable items come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. In other words, each item you’re moving will require a different set of instructions for packing and transporting to a new home.
As an obvious example, a collection of priceless wines will require different attention and care than what your antique piano needs for relocation. Both items are of high value, yet fragile in different ways. In this section, we’ve provided a breakdown of how some of the most common luxury items should be moved for your consideration.
No matter how protected your items are, you should always consider taking advantage of full valuation coverage or additional moving insurance to protect yourself in the event of something happening to your luxury items. The last thing you want to experience is getting reimbursement of $1.60 for a $5,000 sculpture because it only weighed two pounds.
Since our beginning, we have worked tirelessly to provide the best moving experience for our customers. A part of that has been the service we offer to accommodate the moving of luxury items. We offer specialized crating solutions along with additional equipment and training to ensure that your items are perfectly safe during transport.
