Jewelers’ Mutual Offers Tips To Keep Jewelry Safe During A MoveJuly 20, 2016 (0 comments)
Neenah, WI—No matter how carefully you pack for a move from one residence to another, it seems something always comes up missing when you unpack. Sometimes it’s an easily replaced item like a frying pan, but if that something is a piece of jewelry the loss is far more personal.
According to the U.S. Justice Department, more than $1 billion in scheduled insured jewelry is lost every year.
Summer is moving season. Jewelers who know a customer is planning to move can help prevent a jewelry loss during the move. Even with the most careful preparation, valuable pieces can be accidentally lost, but there are steps that can minimize the risk. In addition to suggesting specialized insurance for their jewelry at the time of purchase, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company suggests jewelers offer customers these helpful tips about protecting jewelry during a move:
- Take inventory of each piece prior to the move
- Transport it themselves and keep it close at hand
- Use an armored courier service
- Ship via registered mail
- Offer to store their pieces for them
David Sexton, vice president of loss prevention at Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company explains, “There are often differences in jewelry coverage options, when scheduled on your homeowners or renters insurance, compared to a specialized insurance company. We’ve considered every aspect of what it means to own, wear and love jewelry, and our coverage reflects that.”
