Clockwork Removals recommends packing delicate collectibles in their original cartons, if possible, for the best protection. However, if these are not available, Clockwork can pack the collectibles in secure boxes and cushion them in bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts.
Here are a few things to remember when packing your collectibles:
Pack small collectible items like coins, stamps, etc. and transport them with you. China, crystal and delicate porcelain should be individually wrapped in fine tissue and placed in specially designed compartment containers with plates standing on edge and stemware in individual corrugated cylinders.
Pack dolls, figurines, and sculptures as you would any other breakable goods. Wrap them individually in soft tissue or padding and pack in bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts. If necessary, use double-walled cartons.
Ask your sales representative about packing wine or other perishable collections. Special arrangements may be needed to assure the utmost care while in transit.
Label all cartons containing glassware and breakables with “Fragile” labels supplied by your Clockwork Removals Representative.
Anything Clockwork Removals is to pack should be left in its place; it’s safer and easier.
Ask your Clockwork Removals Representative about unusual or hard-to-move collections.
Prepare a list of your collectibles for your homeowner’s insurance policy if you have not already done so
Protecting Your Valuables
To ensure your possessions arrive safely and in perfect condition at your new home, your cooperation is important. You will be asked to…
Complete the Statement of Customer Responsibilities and High Value Inventory form provided by Clockwork Removals, before relocating. It serves as an inventory of your valuables, indicates to Clockwork which items may require special attention and informs you of your responsibilities.
List all belongings you consider to be of high-value that are to be moved by Clockwork removals, including: jewelry, coins, stamps and other collections; antiques; precious stones and metals; and valuable paintings. This will help determine the total value of the shipment and assist Clockwork removals in determining which pieces need special care.
When transporting jewelry, coins, stamps, etc., it’s important to remember that Clockwork removals may not be liable for these items in the event they are damaged. The Rights and Responsibilities form states that these items are non-Clockwork removals liability items as we encourage that the customer transport these with them and not include them in the shipment.
Make sure all special instruction labels are clearly visible and can be understood by the packers and movers. The van operator must see each item of high-value before moving it onto the truck, including cartons you have packed yourself. If a carton which you have packed yourself is considered insufficient by the van operator, he/she may ask you or Clockwork removals personnel to repack the items. If Clockwork removals repacks the carton, you may be charged for the service. If any cartons which you have packed are damaged during transit, liability may be affected.
Use your Customer Responsibilities form and the supplied Customer Check-Off Sheet at time of delivery as inventory lists. Check off each piece/box as it is unloaded and record anything missing or damaged. If something is missing, your relocation crew can start the search immediately.
