Moving FAQ -

What is a high-value inventory form and when should one sign it?

A high-value inventory form is required to be signed when you are moving your items with a value greater than $100 per pound. Such items must be detailed on the high-value inventory sheet to make the movers identify such items on a moving day. In case, you do not have any of such items then you should simply write none in the space provided in the inventory form.

In case you do not enter such items in the high-value list, you would not be adequately covered and you would not be able to receive an adequate claim in case of loss or damage to your items.

Q32 - How can I claim for my high-value items in case of loss or damage to the items?

Unlike the regular items, you cannot simply claim for the loss of your high-value items. Just filing the form of a high-value item is not sufficient to identify the worth of your items. You are also required to submit proof of your high-value items.

If you do not have a proof of value, you must obtain an appraisal prior to moving your items. This will act as proof of value for the movers and insurance company. An additional purchase of the full value coverage with your mover is also useful.

Q33 - What items come under the category of high-value items?

The items that come under the category of high-value items include:

  • Coin collection

  • Computers

  • Crystals

  • TVs

  • Musical Instruments

  • Precious stones and Gems

  • Silver

  • Video Cameras

  • Home Theatre System, etc.

The value of these items is more than $100 per pound. Besides these, there are many other items whose worth is more than $100 per pound, and the same must be listed in the inventory sheet to ensure the protection of your items. This would allow you to claim for the damaged items that are accompanied by the proof of value.

Q34 - Whom should I contact for the estimated delivery?

The date of the estimated delivery is provided to you in the bill of lading and the order for delivery documents. You can refer to these documents for the estimated arrival of your shipment.

However, if you want to track your shipment on a live basis, you may connect with the service agent who would give you the status of your items and the estimated timeline when your items would be delivered at their destination.

Other than calling the customer representative, you may track the moving status of your items online using the tracking portal provided to you by the moving company.

Q35 - How does a driver keep a track of the items?

A driver keeps the track of the items to be moved from the stage of loading to the stage of unloading. In the loading stage, a driver prepares a list of inventories with a brief description of them and their conditions. The same happens at the time of unloading, where a driver checks the items in accordance with the conditions found at the stage of loading of inventories.

On the date of delivery, you are required to check whether your items are in a perfect condition or not. If they are not in a proper condition then must make the driver know about this. Based on that, you may get compensation for the damage caused to your items.

Q36 - What are the line haul charges?

Linehaul charges can be defined as the charges that are levied for the vehicle transportation portion of the move. These charges are based on the weight and the space occupied by your items in the move. Linehaul charges must not be confused with the loading, packing, and unloading charges. These charges are instead levied separately in the form of additional moving charges.

You must ask your moving company to get an estimation of the line haul charges on your move. The moving company will then give you the details of the line haul charges charged from you.
