All interstate movers, by law, have a basic liability of $.60 per pound per article at no additional charge to the customer; it provides very limited protection of your household goods.
In case of loss of damage, carrier liability does not exceed an amount equal to $.60 time the pound weight of the article lost or damaged. For example, if a ten-pound lamp were lost or damaged, regardless of its value, the amount paid by the carrier would be only $6.00.
Be sure to discuss declared valuation with your AAKC Moving representative, because it is your responsibility to specifically designate the value of your household goods shipment when it is released to the carrier.
Please note that AAKC Moving is not responsible for loss or damage to documents, currency, jewelry, coin collections, or stamp collections. We recommend that you take these items with you or that you make other arrangements to transport these items.
