Worried About Movers Breaking Your Stuff?

It's a common concern: when you trust strangers with all your worldly possessions, it's easy to think that your things might be going into the wrong hands. While most movers have the experience to prevent customers' items getting broken, accidents do happen. Sometimes, items get damaged during the move, and it's actually better for movers to have broken your things than if you break your things. With professional moving companies handling your stuff, THEY are liable for damage. During a DIY move, well, you're on the hook for your own things.

However, it must be said that the standard rate for movers to cover your items is only sixty cents per pound. If you'd like for the full value to be covered in the event of a mishap, you can buy a claims package upfront.

Whether you take advantage of full valuation insurance or you're making a standard claim, you must file this claim with your moving company immediately upon noticing the damage. Generally, for local residential moves, the moving company has 30 days to resolve the matter. For long distance moves, this process can take up to 90 days.

What if the company and the customer can't reach an agreement? This is when an arbitrator will step in. This person is called in to settle disputes to avoid the case being taken to small claims court. Every legitimate moving company will have arbitration, so you don't have to worry about finding an arbitrator yourself.
