Am I Responsible for Damages During Moving?

Moving can be a stressful experience, especially when you start worrying about possibly being responsible for damages during the moving process. Thankfully, you can put your worries to rest! When you choose a reputable, licensed moving company, you can have peace of mind knowing that the company will have insurance and offers protection against item loss or damage. Keep reading to get the details.

What About Damages to a Home?

If there is any damage to your home when the moving company is moving you out or in, the company is almost always the one responsible. The only exception would be if the damage was impossible to avoid, like in the case of a loose handrail or stair that causes a mover to put a sofa through the drywall.

What About Damages to Your Belongings?

Accidents can happen during the moving process. A mover may drop a glass vase or bend a lampshade, or items might become broken during the transport. That's why it's crucial to hire a licensed moving company because the federal government requires them to have two levels of valuation coverage to reimburse or replace the items. You can also purchase additional insurance to give you the level of protection you desire for high-dollar possessions.
