Insurance Terms


Our service includes a $2,000,000 liability coverage with a $750 deductible. The customer is responsible for the deductible on any insurance claims. 

In case of damage done to furniture or any other items during the move we provide Standard Valuation Coverage of $0.60 per LB, at no additional cost to all of our customers.

If you require additional coverages please contact our operational manager, as we do have different extended coverages available for purchase.

                                                                     FullValue protection.

If you feel that all of your personal belongings are certainly worth more than $0.60 cents per LB, we also offer “full-value protection”. The coverage is based on your valuation of the contents being transported. The cost is based on about 1% percent of the valuation, so if you decide all of your belongings being shipped are worth $50,000, you would pay $500 for full-value protection. Full-value protection allows us two options if any articles are lost, destroyed or damaged during the move. This is also called “full replacement value.” Moving Relocation Systems, not the consumer, decides how amends will be made for the property. We can either have the item repaired so it is in the same condition as it was before being damage occurred, or we can replace the item with another of like-kind. Basically, if your two-year-old washing machine was smashed, we would not replace it with a new one. You will likely be given the fair-market value of a two-year-old washing machine. 


Insurance does not automatically pay for any damage. It must be clearly shown that the mover was responsible for the damage. 

Items in boxes not packed by the mover are not covered, unless the outside of the carton provides clear evidence that the entire box was damaged during the moving. 

In order to start a claim process, a client has to report the damage to the movers and pay the full amount of the move performed.

The moving company shall not under any circumstances, be liable for:

1. Loss, damage or delay to any of the goods described in the bill of lading caused by an act of God, the Queen’s or public enemies, riots, strikes, a defect or inherent vice in the goods, an act or default of the consignor, Owner or Customer, authority of law and or quarantine.

6. Damage caused by or due to peeling veneer of any sort

7. Deterioration of any article due to aging, temperature, humidity or moisture

8. Items of extraordinary value including but not limited to Mortgage Papers, Legal Documents, Business Documents, Antique’s, Jewelry are not covered by either release rate liability or full value protection. Therefore these items are moved and/or transported at owner’s risk.
