Everyone’s belongings have value, whether monetary or sentimental. Our movers take great care to ensure that nothing is damaged in the course of a move, but unfortunately, damage claims do happen from time to time. The common assumption is that full coverage insurance is included when a moving company lists itself as a licensed and insured carrier. However, the terms licensed and insured simply mean that the company has sufficient auto, general liability, and cargo coverage that the Department of Transportation requires.
Valuation is what covers your household goods during your move. As explained in the Important documents listed above, there are options available to cover loss or damage to your goods.
1) $0.60 CENTS PER POUND PER ARTICLE (BASIC COVERAGE) This option provides for recovery for lost or damaged item(s) based on $0.60 cents times the weight of the item(s). Regardless the items actual value you would be reimbursed $0.60 cents per pound. This level of coverage is provided at no additional charge.
All full value protection options are available through MovingInsurance.com , To purchase or get a quote for Full Value Protection please go to MovingInsurance.com or call 888-893-8835
Our employees take the utmost care when handling your belongings and go the extra mile to protect your items.
