Insurance should always be among your highest priorities during the moving process. At LA Moving Star we want our customers to understand the importance of insurance in the same way that you get health insurance, auto insurance, this is exactly where moving insurance can help you sleep very well at night until every single item is safely delivered, in its proper place and conditions.
Valuation protection for goods which is provided by moving companies is not full-coverage insurance. All licensed moving companies include only basic valuation in the cost of a move, in California it equals to $.60 per pound per item.
Valuation determination is fully based on how much an item weighs, there’s no difference whether it is a hockey table or a table made of pure silver with jewelry pieces both are valued exactly the same at $.60 in California. Reimbursement example with free coverage of $.60 per pound would be the following: if 100 pounds refrigerator is damaged during the move you will get $60 in reimbursement, the number $60 came by multiplying 100pound fridge weight and $.60 per pound free coverage.
You may need to purchase additional valuation in case an item is worth more than $.60 per pound.
