In the moving industry, high-value inventory is defined as items valued at more than $100.00 per pound. They are also referred to as “articles of extraordinary value”. 

Although you might have other articles to include in high-value inventory, we have outlined some typical household goods that often fall under this category.

Typical High-Value Inventory Items:

  • Precious metal
  • Stones or gems
  • Gold, Silver, or Platinum articles
  • China sets & Silverware Sets
  • Crystal or figurines
  • Fur or fur garments
  • Antiques
  • Oriental rugs or tapestries
  • Rare collectible items or objects of art
  • Computer software programs
  • Manuscripts or other rare documents
  • Valuable memorabilia

When moving long-distance, you will be presented with a high-value inventory form. List all your “high-value” items on this form. Once the form is completed, these pieces must be inspected by the Packers or your Van Operator on move day. This allows the movers to track these pieces more closely and provides greater security of these possessions. Failure to identify such articles can result in limited mover liability.

In short, your prized possessions are important to us. Therefore, it is crucial to make sure your movers have these items on record as such.
