Even though you are entrusting your household goods and personal effects to us as a professional mover, there is a possibility of loss or damage while your shipment is exposed to the rigors of international transport. Moving companies, shipping lines and air lines have limited liability for loss or damage.
Our Insurance Certificate is especially designed to insure household goods, personal effects, antiques, fine arts, and automobiles for international transit.
Insurance Coverage is “ All Risk “ , on a door-to-door basis
Insurance coverage is based on your statement of the value of your goods and for that purpose, we kindly ask you to prepare a detailed valued list as follows:
example Article Number Replacement Value
Chairs 6 US$ 1200
Because it is difficult to acquire knowledge about the cost of replacement at destination, we suggest that you use the relative cost of living differences between your origin and destination. For instance, if you are moving to Tokyo and its cost of living is 170% higher of North America, then that factor needs to be applied to your origin values. In other words, if your origin values total US $ 40,000 then the new value 170 % x 40,000 = US$ 68,000 should be at Tokyo , and using that should provide sufficient insurance for goods at final destination.
Please remember that in all cases, insurance protection is never higher than the value you declare and items that are not declared at all are not insured. Insurance coverage CAN NOT be put in place without a complete detailed valued list and it is essential that we receive it prior to the start of packing for the move.
* Any item or set over US$ 500 Value must be listed separately.
* The detailed valued list must be signed.
