Good afternoon,

I'm Canadian and been admitted to a US university as a mature post-degree student for the summer semester. I've sold my home and am starting to prepare for the move.

How detailed must the household goods inventory lists be? I'm moving a lot of professional books (yes, they'll be useful in my area of study) and am wondering if a general description of box contents (15 software and computer training manuals, ext. replacement value $30 each) will do or if the contents need to be itemized by box? And, although I've downsized substantially, I'm still moving a lot of stuff. Cheaper to move than store under present circumstances* My father and I are packing and doing the inventory next week.

Any one have experience crossing the Canadian/US border from Canada into the US and care to share?
I've emailed the question to the US Customs and Border Patrol, but have not yet heard back.

*Parental units are preparing to downsize themselves and I'd have to pay for storage here in Toronto.
