What are the costs for insuring my goods and what happens if something is damaged?
Premier Van Lines provides a default insurance that is included in the services provided. Our insurance will cover $0.60 per pound per article and this coverage requires no additional fee. If you do the math, the coverage is a bit meager.
With this in mind, Premier Van Lines offers additional full coverage insurance through Baker Insurance. The cost for our Full Value Replacement Insurance is $33.00 for every $1,000.00 of value you place on your shipment. This insurance is optional; however, if you choose to purchase the full coverage insurance, you are required to purchase a minimum of $9,000.00 of coverage which means that the minimum policy will cost $297.00 and there is no deductible. It is recommended that you insure the entire value of your belongings.
We also provide total loss coverage for the do it yourself moves and self packed moves. This means that coverage kicks in when there is a total loss due to an accident involving the trucking or the ocean vessel sinks. There is no coverage for breakage or damage due to loading or packing. The cost for this coverage is $18.00 per $1,000.00 of valuation. There is no deductible for this coverage.
Prior to your move date, we will send you an application form to fill out where you will list all your items and list the value of each item to come up with a total coverage required. Your Hawaii Move Coordinator can assist you with answers about our coverage options.
