Shipping or traveling? What you need to know from Collectibles Insurance...

When shipping -

* Do not put your company name or company name you are shipping to on the package. The company name often alerts possible thieves within the shipping company that the package contains something valuable.

* Pack small items in a LARGE box that would be difficult to put in a pocket or conceal under a jacket to lessen the chance that the item can be stolen while it is being shipped.

* Avoid shipping items on Fridays or before a holiday.

* Use the fastest shipping method requiring a delivery signature.

When traveling -

* Keep collectibles with you while you travel. Do not place them in checked baggage or leave them in your car unattended.

* Carry collectibles in a bag that leaves both hands free to avoid putting them down.
