Valuation Options and Insurance for Your Move

As the leading professional movers in the Desert Cities and for families and companies around the country, Desert Moving Company & Storage has nearly 30 years of experience in providing reliable service and safe arrivals.

However, whenever you move or relocate, valuation options and insurance are an important consideration and can help ensure that you are covered in the unlikely event that an item is lost or damaged.

Valuation Defined

Valuation is the amount of liability that your 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 choose your valuation options and determine the valuation of your goods and belongings. You can also choose to purchase additional third-party insurance for added protection.

There are two fundamental moving company valuation options that all movers must provide.

Valuation Options

Minimum Protection
If you prefer to bypass or minimize extra insurance expenses, Desert Moving Company & Storage offers 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 move, but it is always important to consider your unique needs 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 protection for your valuable household goods, we 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).

Coverage for High-value Items
If you have 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 so that you can be assured of receiving a proper level of moving coverage.

Testimonials

I was desperate to find a mover who could help me move out of my condo. I resorted to the yellow pages and found DMC. Their ad seemed attractive to me. I called, talking to Nathan, who was effecient, friendly and gave me the confidence to book the move. Everything happened on schedule by Luis and his group. The move went quickly and expertly. without exception everyone at DMC is a pleasure to deal with. They must have a corner on great, hardworking people. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
