Our objective at Ace Moving & Storage is to make our customers’ moving experience better by providing them with all the information they need. When a Certified Moving Consultant does a phone or in-home survey of your household belongings, they will have already started a conversation with you regarding Valuation Options. Since there is some confusion about the terms insurance and valuation, we thought it would be good to explain what the terms imply, why we use them, and what that means for you.
Federal government rules and regulations
States and the federal government regulate the rules and regulations that moving businesses must follow. The state of Virginia and the federal government both compel movers to provide their clients a compensation for the things they are moving or storing. The issue arises when the phrases Insurance and Valuation are used interchangeably. While there are similarities between the two notions, there are significant differences.
Valuation Options provide protection for both the Moving Company and the Customer, but they are not the same as “insurance” in the legal sense. The valuation of goods determines a level of compensation in the event that the items being moved or stored are lost or damaged. Increased Valuation Options also imply an increase in the degree of compensation offered by Mover for a fee. Moving Insurance, on the other hand, uses an insurance contract to transfer the compensation granted by the moving company straight to the insurance agent in exchange for a specific premium. Because of the coverage given and the administrative processes required to bring it into action, moving insurance prices are often higher.
