Fully Licensed & Insured

The following is a breakdown of the various protection programs that are available to our local moving customers:

    1. Free Valuation
    If you do not declare value or purchase additional insurance, our liability will be limited pursuant to our public tariffs. You may elect to limit our liability to $0.30 per lb. per article by expressly marking this limitation on the bill of lading. In the alternative, by not specifically limiting our liability to $0.30 per lb. per article, the entire shipment will be deemed to be released to a lump sum value of $2,500.

    2. Declared Valuation
    You may elect to declare a value on your goods during the course of your move. If you declare value on your shipment, we will be responsible for the actual cash value of the loss or damage resulting from our negligence, not to exceed the amount you declare. Actual cash value means that the adjustment of the loss will include a customary depreciation factor. You must make your declaration of value at the beginning of the move. That declaration of value must be listed on the bill of lading. The charge for declared value is $5.00 per $1,000 of value declared.

    3. Transit Insurance on a Replacement Cost Basis
    Replacement cost insurance is available at the rate of $7.50 per $1,000 of insured value. A separate insurance policy will be issued to you through our office if you select this option. You must request this insurance before the move begins. The terms and conditions of that policy will determine the scope of the coverage.

    This coverage is subject to 100% co-insurance. We require a $20,000 minimum on any local move. Your insurance value should reflect at least a valuation of $3.50 per lb. This coverage includes a mandatory $500 deductible.

    Replacement cost insurance without deductible is available at a rate of $9.00 per $1,000 of insured value.

    4. Storage Insurance
    Storage insurance is available on the goods that are stored in our warehouse. A separate insurance policy will be issued to you if you elect this option. If you elect warehouse insurance, you must also insure your goods during the course of transit to and from our warehouse. Warehouse insurance may be obtained on an actual cash value basis for a monthly rate of $2.50 per $1,000 of insured value. Replacement cost insurance is available for a rate of $3.50 per $1,000 of insured value per month. Premiums are payable monthly and will be included as a separate item on your monthly statement. Since our insurance coverage includes a 100% co-insurance clause, shippers should insure their shipment for the actual worth of the entire shipment. Failure to insure for the full value of the entire shipment will lead to a co-insurance penalty in the event of a claim.

    Storage insurance is subject to a $500 deductible.
