When you hear people talking about an international move and jewelry protection, you might think about people dripping in diamonds, gold and gems. While some customers do have several pieces of expensive jewelry, many have a few treasured family heirlooms and pieces that have a lot of sentimental value. You want to know that your favorite pieces will be safe during the shipping process and that those pieces will come out of the box in perfect condition. After learning how to pack and prepare your jewelry, find out what an international moving company will do to keep those items safe.
How to Prepare Your Jewelry
Now is the perfect time to clean out your jewelry box. Remove each piece from the box, place those pieces to the side and wipe out the inside of the box with a damp cloth. Clean your jewelry with a cleaning cloth or a cleaning solution, and let each piece dry for several hours. Cover the lining of the jewelry box with a thick layer of tissue paper and wrap each piece of jewelry with more tissue paper. The tissue paper will keep the pieces from scratching or rubbing against each other during transport. You can also find organizers specifically designed for moving jewelry. These organizers prevent necklaces from tangling and keep matched earrings together.
Choose Liability Insurance
When you choose one of our storage units, we offer you the chance to purchase additional liability insurance. Depending on the policy you have with your current insurer, the policy might not cover damage or loss when moving to a new house. Liability insurance pays for repairs to damaged items and the replacement value for items lost or destroyed during shipping. An international move and jewelry protection insurance policy will help you feel a little better about sending your favorite pieces off with a stranger.
Security and Protection
Security and protection
for your valuables is just as important to us as it is to you. That is why we use different security methods, including shipment tracking.

Many customers turn to international movers for jewelry protection needs because professionals will go above and beyond to protect their family heirlooms, sentimental gifts, valuable jewelry and any other expensive items they need to ship.
