Packing jewelry to move can seem like an overwhelming task. We are here to help! This blog post will give you helpful tips and tricks on packing your precious pieces so they don’t get broken, lost, or forgotten during the moving.
Pack jewelry in a small, labeled bag for easy access. Make sure all the pieces are together and that they can be easily found when you need them.
Also, label your bags with what is inside using tags or masking tape, so it’s easier to find exactly what you’re looking for during unpacking. If possible, store your bags in a box marked ‘jewelry’ separate from the other boxes.
Place all the pieces together on a towel to avoid tangling during packing/unpacking. That way, they’ll be easy to find, and you won’t have to search through your pile of belongings for them. It also prevents scratches or damage from other items rubbing against the jewelry case or container. Plus, it will help prevent any loose pieces from getting lost in the box.
Wrap each piece of jewelry individually in tissue paper before placing it into the bag to prevent scratching and keep them from moving around too much. Then put all your wrapped pieces inside a small, soft pouch or sock if possible for extra protection.
If you want further peace of mind that your items will be well taken care of during transit, take them to a professional jeweler. They can pack your pieces for you and give you peace of mind that they will be safe during the move.
Don’t forget, if any of your items are particularly valuable (such as heirlooms or high-end jewelry), it may be worthwhile investing in additional insurance coverage to protect them!
Store your most expensive pieces separately – they are more likely to be stolen if left out with other items. This is where you can use the box marked ‘jewelry.’ Put any valuable or high-end pieces into individual pouches for extra protection and store them in a safe place apart from everything else.
Use zip-lock bags or airtight containers for loose stones or earrings that could fall out of their settings. This is the best way to ensure they don’t get lost in transit and your items remain safe from water damage during loading/unloading, rainstorms, etc.
If you’re concerned about security, some moving companies provide additional services for particular items. For example, they can provide an in-home visit where they pack and secure your most valuable pieces for you if nothing must be moved or disturbed during the move.
Keep an eye on your valuables at all times when you’re at home by storing them somewhere safe, like a locked drawer or cabinet away from windows and doors. That way, they’ll be out of sight if the movers are coming in to unload boxes and will also be less likely to attract attention during transit. If possible, keep your items in a place that’s not visible from the street.
If you have small children at home or pets, make sure to keep your valuables out of reach. They could easily break something, and the liability for damage falls on you as the owner of those items!
