Wealthy homeowners often hire traditional moving companies for household goods, but they also hire a specialty mover to handle the delicate things, such as rare paintings, antique furniture and other high-value items.

These so-called "white glove" services carry a big price tag because the high-end items often require delicate wrapping, climate control trucks, custom crates and other measures.

"On the high end, planning is everything," says Nir Shuminer of New York-based Scanio Movers.

Luxury moves can take several days to make sure artwork, chandeliers, crystal and other fragile items are packed correctly and don't get lost or damaged. However, affluent clients tend to value careful packing over speed.

According to Scanio, one recent luxury move cost the client around $27,000.

When moving rare and valuable items, it's also important for homeowners to consider insurance, traditional moving companies generally offer insurance by weight or volume of goods transported, not full replacement or market value of individual items. Homeowners' policies may cover moves, but coverage can vary, so homeowners should check if any special riders are in place, and what types of damages or losses are covered.
