I moved to the USA from Canada and back with Hermes bags. I ended up hand carrying my favourite bags over the boarder (by plane) on multiple trips. My final trip home I think I had 4 or 5 Hermes bags nestled in 2 bundles as my and DH's carry ons. I was concerned about something happening to them in the move regardless of insurance coverage. The rest of my bags and all my hermes boxes were packed by a manager at the moving company - I spoke to the move coordinator ahead of time about my valuables so they sent a manager to take pictures, detail the items and pack them. The guy was very careful with the items and I knew I would be covered by the insurance if something happened to anything. The manager actually told me he managed Hermes move to their new store in the city we lived in and he understood that Hermes boxes and crates even have value. We were also moving due to our jobs so the moving companies were hired by DH's company. So the combination of hand carrying and shipping with movers worked well for me.
