Moving Valuation Coverage
Moving liability coverage can be complicated to wrap your mind around. We understand that and have used our expertise to put together this guide on moving valuation coverage. This covers everything you will need to understand how you can be covered during your move.
We often hear people ask, “What is moving valuation coverage?”, and while this can be difficult to understand, it’s incredibly important to learn before your move. Having this understanding is key to gaining peace of mind for your moving process. Here are some of the key pieces of info that you need to understand moving valuation coverage:
Full Value Protection
If you want to get the most coverage possible, choose Full Value Protection. While this comes at a charge to you, you receive complete replacement coverage for each of your items.
By choosing Full Value Protection for your move, we will, at our discretion, offer the following for any items that are damaged or lost:
- Repair the damaged item.
- Replace the damaged or lost item with a similar one.
- Provide a cash settlement for the cost of replacing or repairing the item.
The upfront cost of Full Value Protection may vary due to a number of factors. If you are interested in learning more about this coverage plan, speak to a friendly Turner Moving & Storage representative.
Limited Valuation Coverage
Also known as Released Value Protection, Limited Valuation Coverage is the plan that you will get if you don’t sign up for Full Value Protection. The best part about this plan is that it comes at no cost to you.
With this plan, we take on the liability of no more than 60 cents per pound per article. That means that, with Limited Valuation Coverage, you are covered based on the weight of the item, not on the value of the item.
So, if you choose this coverage plan, an item that weighs 10 pounds will be covered for $6, even if the item is valued well above that.
Articles of Extraordinary Value
Not all items are covered in the same way. Articles of Extraordinary Value are higher value items, specifically ones that are valued at over $100 per pound, and must be identified and listed.
Here are some of the common Articles of Extraordinary Value:
- Fine Art
- Fur Clothing
For your move, you will need to fill out a High-Value Inventory Sheet for any items that fit this category that you want to move. If you have any questions, ask your friendly Turner Moving & Storage representative. If you aren’t sure exactly what the value of an item is or if it qualifies, we suggest getting a professional appraiser.
