Understanding Valuation and Insurance When It Comes to Hiring Vancouver Moving Companies

Professional Vancouver moving companies will provide insurance and protection for your belongings.

There are a number of things that you need to consider when you are in the process of moving; where you are moving to, travel time, the time you need to finish your move as well as budget and hiring the services of Vancouver movers. When calling Vancouver moving companies, it is paramount that you ask about the extent of their insurance coverage. Remember that the moving company is liable for the value of your possessions and knowing how much insurance coverage you can take advantage of is important.

A professional and reputable Vancouver moving company will offer Full Value Protection. If you go for this, the moving company is held liable for the replacement value of lost or damaged goods in your entire shipment through the fault of the carrier. This is the most comprehensive insurance plan that families who are on the move can take advantage of when it comes to the protection of their personal belongings. This means that if any article is lost, destroyed or damaged while being handled by the movers, they will, at their discretion, offer to do one of the following; repair the item, replace the similar item, and make cash settlement for the cost of the repair or the current market replacement value. By choosing this option, the movers are allowed to limit their liability for the loss or damaged of articles of extraordinary value unless these are specifically listed on the contract. An article of extraordinary value refers to items costing $100 or more per pound and you should ask your mover for a written explanation of this limitation before your move is finished.
