Insurance and Certificates of Insurance (COI)


IMPORTANT NOTE: Valuation coverage is not insurance. Valuation is a tariff level of carrier liability in the event of loss or damage of your goods while under due course of transit by a mover.

This type of coverage is unique to carriers alone and therefore it is important for the customer to understand what valuation does and does not cover. Not all customers fall into this coverage. We are happy to provide Limited Liability coverage at no charge to those who qualify.

Under this option, a maximum limited cost of $0.60 per pound per article is compensated in the event of loss or damage. For example, if a lamp weighing four pounds is lost or damaged, you will not be able to collect more than $2.40 no matter how valuable the lamp was. For a “Full Value Protection” or a “Replacement Cost” coverage, please call for a quote.

Unloading Your Goods and Checking For Damage

Upon completion of the delivery, the driver will ask you to sign the Job Completion Release form. Before signing it, be sure that all the damage and any lost articles are noted. If the driver will not make such notations, make them yourself before signing in the comments section.

Remember, telling the driver about these things is not enough. Do not sign any delivery papers for the driver until the delivery is completed. When you sign the delivery receipt, you accept your goods in good condition, except as noted on the receipt.

Remember, the time spent by you on inspecting your goods at the time of delivery for damage and lost items will be a major factor in collecting for loss or damages.
