Your homeowner's insurance may cover the cost of your goods while they're in your hands, but not while they are in the hands of your movers. So even if your professional movers have insurance, it may be worth purchasing some additional protection to cover your stuff while it's in transit. Even if you're not buying separate moving insurance, it's a good idea to create an inventory of the items you're moving. This will be a useful reference to look back and make sure everything arrives safely at its intended destination. On your inventory list, describe the item, note its approximate weight and estimate its replacement value. For antiques or other priceless items, it may even be worthwhile to have a friend with a digital camera document the item's condition before being loaded.
