Some of our competitors operate on the “if you don’t mention it, it won’t happen” principle.
Take damage to your property during your move.
Homeowners who comparison shop have told us, “they never brought that up” when we ask about the valuation (damage coverage) built into a competitor’s bid and usually it’s not enough.
Legally, you get valuation for free as part of your move. But that standard coverage is only 60 cents per pound of goods, regardless of what those goods are.
…A damaged 100-pound antique dining room table, a family heirloom? You’re reimbursed $60.
…A damaged 100-pound cinderblock sofa from college? You’re reimbursed the same $60.
Of course you can buy more valuation — if you know to ask for it. This is one reason our moving bid may look higher than one from another moving company. Which is whyStuddard Moving Group explains your options and works with you to put a true value on your belongings.
One last tip…. be sure to fill out your High Value Inventory Form. As a reference, ours looks like this.
It’s YOUR move.
