Ask the Expert: What is Full-Value Protection?

 

King Companies, an agent of United Van Lines, is committed to making your next move your best move. This includes protecting your belongings. Through United Van Lines, we are able to provide you with access to a plan that will protect you in the event that something unexpected happens to your personal items during your move. It’s called Full-Value Protection.

 

It is important that you and your employees, if the business is paying for the relocation, understand what we mean when we say “Full-Value Protection.” We asked our household relocation experts here at King Companies for more details on this offering, and here’s what they said:

 

Q: How does Full-Value Protection Work?

A: The default amount of full-value protection is automatically included with a move using the estimated weight of the customer’s total shipment. The protection amount is calculated at a rate of $6 per pound, multiplied by the estimated weight of your total shipment. For example, United Van Lines will offer $60,000 in shipment protection for a 10,000 pound shipment.

 

Q: When does Full-Value Protection kick in?

A: In the event that our movers cause damage or loss to any of your personal belongings, they will either be repaired or replaced, up to the total amount of the shipment protection selected by the mover.

 

Q: What about high value inventory such as artwork or antiques?

A: We provide a High Value Inventory form with Full-Value Protection. This form must be used to list any items valued greater than $100 per pound. It’s important that each item being moved is carefully considered with this in mind. Therefore, if you have items valued at more than $100 per pound it is imperative that you list the item on this form. Please be advised that without the completed form, you will receive only a fraction of the replacement value of the item. When using the High Value Inventory form properly, you can reclaim the full replacement value of the item.

 

At King Companies, we understand the stress associated with household relocations, and Full-Value Protection can help to ease your mind. To learn more, please contact our experts at (800) 854-3679.
