Moving Protection

Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances may occur during the moving process, causing loss or damage to belongings.

United Moving Solutions will work hard and want to make sure you will be compensated accordingly for the protection option you choose prior to loading the truck at its origin. The compensation for your loss will depend on the options of protection you’ll select. Please inspect the options below.

Full Value Protection

Is the most comprehensive option available for the protection of your goods. If any article is lost, destroyed, or damaged while in your mover’s custody, your mover will, at its option, either;  

  1. Repair the article to the extent necessary to restore it to the same condition as when it was received by your mover, or pay you for the cost of such repairs; or
  2. Replace the article with an article of like kind and quality, or pay you for the cost of such a replacement.

Under Full (Replacement) Value Protection, if you do not declare a higher replacement value before the time of shipment, the value of your goods will be deemed to be equal to $6.00 multiplied by the weight (in pounds) of the shipment, subject to a minimum valuation for the shipment of $6000.  Under this option, the cost of your move will be composed of a base rate plus an added cost reflecting the cost of providing this full-value cargo liability protection for your shipment.

Waiver of Full Value Protection

This lower level of protection is provided at no additional cost beyond the base rate; however, it provides only minimal protection that is considerably less than the average value of household goods.

Under this option, a claim for an article that may be lost, destroyed, or damaged while in your mover’s custody will be settled based on the weight of the individual articles multiplied by 60 cents. For example, the settlement for an audio component valued at $1000 that weighs 10 pounds would be $6.00 (10 pounds times 60¢).

Homeowner / Renters Insurance Protection

In most cases, your homeowner’s coverage will protect your personal possessions if they’re broken during a move, both on the way from and moving to an insured location. Ask your insurance provider to find out exactly what your policy covers.
