Solomon & Sons Relocation Services Liability Options
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, interstate movers must offer two levels of liability coverage called valuation, under Federal law. The standard valuation is included in the cost of your moving services and is the basic liability a mover assumes for damage to your belongings. Full replacement holds movers responsible for repairing or replacing any damaged items, but you pay to add this coverage to your relocation agreement, and there’s usually a deductible.
Standard valuation can be as low as .60 cents per pound, which is inadequate for just about any items. While movers take care not to damage your furniture or other belongings, consider paying for full valuation, particularly for longer moves.
