RARE Moving & Storage offers three protection options from which you may choose prior to the start of your move. The option you select establishes RARE Moving Company, Inc.’s maximum liability for your goods, subject to the rules contained in RARE Moving Company, Inc.’s tariff and the terms and conditions on the back of our bill of lading. Please note that options 1 and 2 are for shipments in transit within the state of Massachusetts. Option 3 can be applied to both transit and storage.
Option 1: Basic Liability
As a licensed common carrier in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, RARE Moving is required to provide Basic Liability coverage for all goods moved. If you do not select additional coverage, this coverage is automatically provided to you at no charge. Under this coverage, our maximum legal liability is limited to $0.60 per pound per article. This is insufficient protection for most situations. It is only recommended when accompanied by an insurance policy that covers goods in transit.
Option 2: Transit Damage Protection
For customers seeking some additional protection, we offer Transit Damage Protection. This option meets most needs at a reasonable charge of $99. Transit Damage Protection limits RARE Moving Company, Inc.’s liability to the first $3000 at Actual Cash Value for damage repair/replacement. For amounts in excess of $3000, RARE’s liability will be limited to $0.60 per pound per article.
Option 3: Actual Cash Value
This option is based on the declared actual cash value of the entire shipment by the shipper and can be found on our Premiums Valuation Table.
If any article is lost, destroyed, or damaged while in transit and in custody of RARE Moving Company, Inc., RARE will cover the least of the following amounts: the actual cash value of the property immediately before the loss; the cost of reasonably restoring the property to its condition immediately before the loss; the cost of replacing the property with substantially identical property. All claims are subject to the rules contained in RARE Moving Company, Inc.’s tariff and the terms and conditions on the back of our bill of lading.
“Fantastic movers! On time, under budget, and VERY PERSONABLE. Made my moving experience a much more peaceful than when I tried to move myself a couple years back.”
