Corporate Moving Valuation Options

Valuation and Protection for Moving and Relocation

Desert Moving Company & Storage has nearly 30 years of experience in providing reliable service and safe arrivals, and we’re a leading corporate moving company that regularly handles moves and relocations for companies and their employees. We take every precaution to make sure that your move is handled safely and with the utmost care.

However, when you move or relocate your employees or your entire company, valuation options and insurance coverage are an important consideration to ensure that you’re covered in the unlikely event that an item is lost or damaged.

What is Valuation?
Valuation is the amount of liability and coverage that your corporate moving company assumes, and it determines the amount you may receive if an item is lost or damaged while in the care of movers and packers.

Ultimately, as the customer, you have the freedom to choose your valuation options and determine the value of your items that are moved and relocated. You can also choose to purchase additional third-party insurance for added protection.

There are two fundamental corporate moving company coverage options that all movers must provide:

Valuation Options

Minimum Protection
If you prefer to bypass or minimize extra insurance expenses, we offer a free basic valuation option, which provides coverage that is limited to a maximum of $0.60 per pound per item in the event of damage or loss. This can reduce the cost of your corporate move or employee relocation, but it is always important to consider full replacement costs and any high-value items when choosing valuation options. To receive our free basic valuation option, you must confirm this level of coverage in writing. However, to ensure ideal corporate moving company coverage, we highly recommend investing in full value protection and optional additional insurance.

Full Value Protection
Unless you explicitly specify minimum protection or other arrangements in writing, Desert Moving Company & Storage assumes liability for your goods based on your purchase of full value protection. With this valuation option, items that are lost, damaged, or destroyed will, at Desert Moving’s option, be repaired or replaced with articles of like kind and quality, or a cash settlement will be made for the repairs or replacement of the articles at their current value, regardless of the age of the lost or damaged item. The minimum declared value of full value protection is $10,000 or $6.00 multiplied by the total weight of the shipment in pounds (whichever is greater).

Additional Coverage

Coverage for High-value Items
If you have specialized equipment or high-value items that exceed a value of $100 per pound weight or higher, please notify our agents and we can provide assistance in preparing a high-value inventory prior to packing your items. With proper inventory and valuation for high-value items, you can be assured of receiving a proper level of moving coverage.

Storage Protection
When you need short-term or long-term storage as part of a corporate move or employee relocation, your moving valuation automatically includes coverage for your stored items for up to 90 days. Your plan will be automatically extended if your storage needs exceed 90 days, and our agents can provide pricing for this additional coverage.

Please note that, while your first 90 days of storage is automatically covered under your moving valuation and protection plan, your protection plan does not include the actual costs of storage. Those costs are handled separately and will be specified in your personalized moving and storage estimate.

Third Party Insurance
It is always a good idea to consider additional insurance coverage from a third party insurance provider, to give you additional peace of mind and protect against any costs that your selected valuation option may not cover. Third party insurance is strictly optional and is not required by your corporate moving company or you as the customer.
