INSURANCE/BREAKAGE/DAMAGE for our moving and pickup/delivery services
Cargo insurance is included for wrecks and major occurences of breakage/damage during transportation. DAMAGE/BREAKAGE MUST BE REPORTED BEFORE THE MOVERS LEAVE, NO EXCEPTIONS! Non-transportation major damange will not cover items that 2 movers are not able to comfortably lift or dolly. Insurance claim for non-transportation damage is limited to 50% of the total cost of the move. Scratching of an item or breakage of a small item falls under minor damage and may be covered by purchasing our small claim insurance prior to the move. However, if not purchased, minor damage is still covered in the form of a discount of up to 10% taken off your service charge for HOURLY, AVERAGE and DEMAND rate moves (a damage discount is NOT available on DISCOUNT rate moves). 10% is the maximum given DUE TO OUR ALREADY LOW RATES. For wall/door scraching from bulky furniture/appliances which can occur during a move even with very careful manuevering, the maximum discount is 5% since this usually requires just a small amount of touch-up paint and possible spackling. Since we do not offer packing services, damage from poor packing or the bottom of a box falling out is not covered.
For our rates, we ask that all "expensive" merchandise that is breakable or scratchable that you are concerned with be wrapped prior to the movers arriving. It is up to you what you wrap or choose not to wrap, however, if not wrapped and a scratch/break occurs, a discount will not be available. We do provide padding on the truck as we are loading/stacking.
