Moving Sentimental Items, and Valuables


Important Papers and sentimental Items

Things of importance and information you need on hand should be carried with you, not moved by movers. These may not have much of a monetary value, but they could be very difficult to replace or be irreplaceable:


  • Address Books
  • Air Line Tickets
  • Bonds
  • Cameras
  • Car Keys
  • Check Books

  • Computer Disks
  • Computer Software
  • Diaries
  • Deeds
  • Files

  • Financial Records
  • Jewelry
  • Letters
  • Medical Records
  • Photos and Albums
  • Research Projects


Extraordinary Value Items

Anything worth more than $100 a pound is considered an Extraordinary Value Item. If you decide to have your movers move your extraordinary value items, you need to make an inventory list identifying each one and then advise your mover in writing of their existence before the move. Most van lines have a special High Value Inventory Form for you to fill out for this purpose.
