WHAT IS PROTECTION PLAN?
WE CAN HELP YOU OUT!
VALUATION VS MOVING INSURANCE
The industry standard for moving companies involves providing a basic value protection. This is not to be confused with moving insurance.
Valuation is not insurance, but more like a very general appraisal for liability. Moving companies generally do not provide a moving insurance quote. It is therefore recommended that you contact a third party company to determine if moving insurance is right for you. Zip Moving & Storage can only offer the basic value protection.
Valuation is the amount of liability a moving company will accept if goods are damaged or lost while in their possession. This is rudimentary coverage and although it varies, depending on where the goods are shipped, it covers $0.60 per pound. This may or may not be enough of a safeguard for your furniture and belongings. We value your items and highly recommend moving insurance for rare or expensive items.
PROFESSIONAL MOVING PROTECTION
The moving insurance quote will depend on items you wish to be covered by the moving insurance. The cost of this insurance is not included in the basic move. It is possible that your homeowner’s insurance policy offers this coverage.
To clarify, Zip Moving & Storage does not supply moving insurance, we cannot provide a moving insurance quote and this must be purchased separately by you. Zip Moving & Storage takes all precautions while moving your items, but moving uncommon or costly goods may make moving insurance a sound decision.
