INSURANCE/BREAKAGE/DAMAGE for our moving and pickup/delivery services
100% Cargo/transporatation insurance is included for wrecks, fire, flood....
The industry standard for insurance is .60 cents per pound. So if your LED tv is broken by a company that provides the industry standard and the weight is 30 pounds, you will receive $18 with most moving companies. Our transportation insurance covers 100 percent to the replace the item if the item is damaged while in transit from wrecks and 50% of the base cost of the move for non-transportation or .60 per pound, whichever is greater. Our insurance is well above industry standards.
Non transportation damages: DAMAGE/BREAKAGE MUST BE REPORTED BEFORE THE MOVERS LEAVING, NO EXCEPTIONS! This policy is enforced in order to eliminate false claims in order to keep our rates low.
If your move was discounted in your quote, the discount acts as a deductible against any claims/complaints. The discount will be applied against the amount of the claim.
Insurance claims for non-transportation major damage is limited to 50% of the total base cost of the move or .60 per pound, whichever is greater.
Minor damage (scratching and minor breaks) is 10%.
Since we do not offer packing services, damage from poor packing or the bottom of a box falling out is not covered.
Insurance does not cover items that 2 movers and a dolly are not able to move comfortably. For this reason, we will usually decline a move for a piano or other such item.
Customers are required to wrap all "expensive" merchandise that are breakable or easily scratched in order for a major damage claim to apply. If an item is damaged that is not wrapped, only a minor damage discount will apply. The trucks do come equipped with padding for the movers to use while loading.
