When it comes time to up and move your current home into a new one, there a lot of things to consider. How should you organize? What should you pack first? What should you get rid of? Should you hire movers? The list could go on. But one thing that should have a simple answer is the choice to protect your things during a move.
When you choose to move with a professional team there are a lot of perks. They do the heavy lifting, they can pack your things, and they place boxes exactly where they belong in the new home. What you might not know, are the details of how your items are insured during your move. Pearson Moving offers the coverage they are legally allowed to offer, but the law states movers cannot sell an actual insurance policy to any clients. The Department of Transportation requires that movers offer Basic Valuation at $0.60 per pound in the event of any damages. So really, it’s based off the weight of your item, and likely won’t cover the full cost of a replacement.
To ensure your items are protected Pearson Moving has teamed up with a local insurance team to provide full coverage on every item in the move. This works like a normal insurance policy with an upfront premium and a deductible in the case of damage. All things considered, that premium and deductible could end up saving you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Every business presents some sort of risk when executing their tasks. Doctors have malpractice insurance, restaurants have health inspections, and movers have supplemental insurance. Pearson Moving is a team of trained, licensed and insured professionals, but there is a risk for damage when $50,000 worth of home goods sit together in a moving vehicle on the road with other drivers. We do our best to protect your belongings, but we recommend an extra layer of security with supplemental insurance to avoid any loss.
Some items for an extra layer of protection:
TV Boxes $30 – we can’t move your TV without it. Trust us, it’s in your best interest
Floor Protection $25 per house – don’t risk your security deposit on your last day, and don’t ruin the floors in your new home
Wardrobe Boxes $15 per box – this will save us time, and you money. Plus, you get to keep it!
