Supplemental Coverage for Household Moving – Valuation
Moving companies do not call the premium coverage that we offer households for their household goods insurance. We leave the term insurance to the true insurance companies like your auto insurance and your homeowners insurance. Since we are reselling a premium household goods protection package for homeowners with a value worth insuring, we call that product ‘valuation’.
The moving company has by law and regulation a minimum responsibility for the value of the household goods they carry for you. In the transportation industry, the homeowner is the shipper and the moving company is the carrier. Carriers are required to offer a basic level of compensation for the household goods they carry, that may vary from state to state, but is almost always smaller than the possible losses that could be incurred. There are different levels of liability that carriers will cover according to the premium products that all big and established moving companies offer, the premium versions being what is called valuation. The level of valuation that a consumer paying for premium coverage determines the compensation they receive if anything is damaged during the moving process. It is worth asking the moving company before buying their valuation product whether, in some cases, they only pay for transport damage. The vast majority of damage occurs in handling the household goods.
Federal law puts a name on the coverage beyond the term valuation that you will hear, released value and full value protection. The Released Rates Orders of the Surface Transportation Board of the U.S. Department of Transportation created this new class of reimbursement for goods shipped by carrier and it is important that released value and full value protection are not insurance policies governed by state insurance laws.
Released value protection offers a small amount of reimbursement for lost and damaged goods with no extra charge to the customer. Released value protection requires carriers to assume liability for up to 60 cents per pound per household goods item. A 100 pound, $2000 flat-screen television broken or missing would mandate the carrier reimburse $60. Customers opting for released value protection sign a contract agreeing to these terms.
Consumers opting for released value protection sometimes do so after checking with homeowners insurance coverage or even purchase third-party moving and relocation insurance that will increase their coverage for household goods losses and damage.
Full value protection either built into the hourly cost of high end moving services (usually starting at $ 175 an hour for two men and on up) or more often for an extra charge based on the value of the household, usually with a minimum coverage of $ 15,000 to $ 25,0000 is a smart choice for households of any substantial value. The movers are required to repair or replace, at their choice, broken or lost items, or pay the shipper (the moving customer) the item’s current market value. Still, moving customers need to be careful with jewelry or antiques that the contracts and agreements do not protect the carrier, indeed in the case of jewelry, sometimes you would no more combine such items with household goods than you would leave your wedding ring in your unlocked car. Check with your mover to see if such items should be explicitly listed and enumerated in shipping documents.
