Planning Tips for Working with Specialty Movers

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Specialty Movers


There are several reasons that individuals and businesses hire specialty movers. As one, we take a great deal of care when working with our clients to develop a plan to move their most precious possessions. When it comes to specialty and expensive objects, a plan must be created to ensure that they arrive at their destination safely. It is not enough to simply show up on moving day and put things in boxes. Instead, by creating a plan, we ensure that everything is in place so that your most precious items get where they need to go without incident or worry. After all, we understand that with your most precious possessions, that means far more to you than their actual worth. We understand that their value is intrinsic and this makes it critical that they arrive in perfect condition.

Create a Plan Prior to Moving

When hired, we will work with you to create a comprehensive plan to ensure that your specialty or high-value items are moved according to your wishes. Here are some things to consider:

  • Are the objects insured? While we take the best care to provide for their safety, it is still wise to have your most valuable possessions insurance
  • How fragile are they? It is necessary for us to provide the right type of packing materials to ensure their complete safety. If you have specific requests or things that we should know, that will give us an idea of what we can do ahead of time
  • Does this item need to be moved with security? If you are moving something that is incredibly expensive, you may want to do it with the help of security. In this case, we can have a security team work with our specialty movers to ensure that nothing happens along the journey. This tends to be more common in situations like moving family jewelry or high-value pieces of art
  •  Are there specific time frames involved with the move? When moving specialty objects that need to be coordinated with a gallery opening, a special event at a home or property, business plans etc. we have to time everything perfectly. If this is the case, we need to be aware so that we can ensure your specialty items are there when you need them
  •  Does anything need to occur so that the property is ready to receive your special items? Very often we are coordinating with household staff, assistants, etc. to ensure that everything is ready for the object to be set in place once it has arrived on site
