If my moving company uses a third party company to do their claims, do I have to file a claim with them or can I make my mover do my claim? | Reply

The law requires that any claim must be filed in writing. If the moving company utilizes the services of a third party claims company, you are not required to file with this company, however it may be the best way to have your claim analyzed by a neutral party. When the company allows a customer to file a claim with the mover, they will have a representative on their payroll process the claim. Some of these representatives may not be as knowledgeable as a representative of the claims company and may be biased toward the company. We suggest speaking with the claims company about your concerns regarding filing a claim through them and they may be able to put your mind at ease and help you to feel more comfortable about filing a claim with them. | Reply
