Household Movers: Moving Coverage
When you choose Allied for your relocation, you can rest assured that your possessions have the best moving coverage and protection available. Our experience, training and stringent standards have made us the moving service more families trust than any other van line in the world. Our expert packers, specialized packing techniques, inventory tracking and specially equipped moving vans are designed to ensure a safe, worry free move so you can focus on the other concerns facing you during this often unsettling life change.
Occasionally, no matter how hard we try, an item may be damaged. But that's why Allied offers valuation protection. It's moving coverage that allows us to rectify the situation quickly, keeping you happy with our moving services during your relocation.
Extra Care Protection - Optimal Household Moving Coverage
Allied offers you total peace of mind with Extra Care Protection, the most comprehensive protection plan in the industry. ECP covers the cost to repair or replace, whichever is less, any household item that is damaged, lost or destroyed
Coverage of Pairs/Sets During Household Moving
ECP moving coverage extends to matched sets and pairs such as lamps, candlesticks, end tables and dining room chairs. If you choose Extra Care Protection and we can't find the exact replacement, we will buy you a whole set.*
Extra Care For Your Valuables
Allied's liability for high-value items is limited to $100 per pound. But for items that exceed that in value, Allied offers a simple, stress-free plan of protection.
We can help you prepare an inventory with our Allied High Value Inventory Form for your belongings valued over $100 per pound. Present it to us prior to packing, and Allied will provide you ECP protection for the full value of the item. This, of course, is subject to the declared value of the entire shipment.
Basic Liability Protection for Household Moving
We also offer Basic Liability Protection, which provides repair or replacement up to a maximum of $0.60 per pound per article should your goods get damaged or lost. Keep in mind, though, when it comes to protecting your belongings, one size does not fit all. The level of protection you need may be greater than minimum levels based on your total shipment weight. Be sure to consider high-value items such as artwork, electronic equipment, crystal and porcelain collectibles. Basic Liability Protection is free of charge with your move, but you must request this moving coverage in writing.
It's Your Move: Choose the Right Coverage
Your personal relocation consultant will provide you with information about Allied Extra Care Protection and your deductible options as well as cost comparisons and the various methods used to determine coverage levels.
Any claims will be handled in a quick, hassle-free way. You'll receive a settlement offer from us within 30 days or well pay you $50 a day up to $500. This guarantee applies to claims of $500 or less where there is a specified amount for each and every item and filed in writing with Allied within 30 days of delivery.
Still Unsure About What's Right for You?
Just ask your Allied relocation consultant. He or she will work with you to understand your moving coverage needs, determine your household's total valuation and answer any other questions you might have. The bottom line is we want you to be satisfied when we drive away.
Understanding the Difference ECP Can Make
Let's say you bought your new television for $1,600, and it weighs 180 pounds. With ECP, if the television is damaged beyond repair, you receive full replacement value**; whereas with Basic coverage, your coverage is limited to $0.60 cents per pound of the item.
ECP $1,600.00 (Full Replacement Value)
Basic $108.00 (180 pounds times $0.60 per pound)
As you can see by this comparison, ECP offers the best overall moving coverage and protection for your belongings.
