Insurance:

Standard insurance is provided for household goods moves with a legal liability release value limitation of 60 cents per pound, per article for interstate moves (local moves may cap coverage at three hundred dollars). What these terms means, is that if you are having your items moved or placed into storage and you have a 100 pound TV which is lost, stolen, broken, or damaged in any way, the maximum amount of recovery for this item would be $60 dollars. In the event you had a 100 pound cement brick that broke, the coverage would be a maximum amount of recovery up to a value of $60. In the event that your item was less than $60 of value, the maximum limit would be the value of the item, not to exceed sixty cents per pound. This amount of 60 cents a pound is certainly not very much and in the event something happens to an antique, a piece of technology equipment, or something with high sentimental value, standard coverage would not come close to replacing the actual or depreciated value of the item. When moving locally, under 100 - 250 miles, unless the items are antiques, technology, or high value artwork, most people do not usually purchase insurance, because the items generally are picked up and transported by the same crew in the same vehicle. When moving interstate, greater than 300-500 miles, or if your items are going into storage for a long time, insurance is recommended. An inexpensive method of obtaining insurance is by checking with any homeowners or renter's policy you may have to see if your items are covered under this policy for moving or storage. If your items are not covered under a personal policy and the standard release value insurance of 60 cents per pound is not what you are looking for, additional insurance may be purchased and typically costs 1.5% - 2.2% of the value of the item for depreciated and actual value insurance respectively. For example, an insurance policy covering $10,000 of household goods (with a $300 deducible) would have an additional insurance cost of $150 (depreciated) and $220 (replacement) insurance charge respectively. Actual policy costs and terms vary, so it is your responsibility to review the actual policy for complete information. You can bind an insurance policy covering items with a credit card up to the day of the move. Note: Customers may need to make their own additional arrangements to insure items placed in self-storage against loss, damage, or theft. Please take care to review the actual coverage you have before any movement or storing your items.
