Transit damage: We do not offer any type of coverage for damage to items in transit. Once we close the door our liability ends. If we unload the items after transit we offer the same coverage as stated in our terms for moving labor services. Some items may shift in transit; it’s what happens in a move. We strive to pack items for the least amount of shifting of the load as possible, however you are responsible to inspect the loading process and supply extra padding and packaging materials if you think it is necessary.
Packing: We use care in packing your items, we cannot foresee damage happening to your items because of our loading service however you are responsible to let us know if you think an item should be loaded in a different way before we stack other items around it.
We offer packing services and we use the best care and materials to protect your items but we do not cover any of these items against damage. We do not cover items in boxes that are self packed. Please write large and clearly if any of your boxes have fragile or breakable items so the can be packed in the truck or container properly.
Inspection: We want to make sure everything is loaded to your satisfaction and we suggest you make several inspections of the load while we are loading your items. Please let us know if you would like us to move an item to a different location before we pack it behind other items, and we will try to accommodate your concerns.
