UncleBobo Posted May 16, 2006 Report Share Posted May 16, 2006 I will be moving to Texas after Memorial Day and I was presented with the problem with transportating my coin collection. I had three options to get my collection from New Jersey to Texas: 1) Ship it down via insured delivery. I did this with my clothes and my music collection but I didn't feel comfortable doing this with my coin collection. 2) Drive it down to Texas. When I do move I will be driving my Chery Prism by myself for over three days. That was my original plan for getting the coins down there, but I didn't feel comfortable dragging the coins from the car into hotel rooms. 3) Fly the coins to Texas. I had to go to Texas this past weekend to take care of some pre move business so I bought the coins with me. I shrinkwrapped, bubble wrapped, secured them tightly in priority us mail boxes and put them into my luggage. They were in my checked in luggage and that worried me a bit. The only problem I had was that Homeland Security went though my bag and cut open one of my boxes to take a look inside. The did no damage to any of the coins, nothing was missing and they were nice enough to retape the box when they put it back into the suitcase. They also left a cute calling card in my bag informing me that they had searched it. I have no complaints about what they did, it has to be done. How have other people moved their collections from one place to the other? What did you do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
