Specifically, the accuracy of the inventory of items the customer would like moved is very important.

Customer understands and accepts it is their responsibility to verify this list and confirm its accuracy.

10. PROCESS FOR SCHEDULING SERVICES: Professional Movers.com has a limited number of movers and trucks and due to our high quality of service, repeat business, and referrals, we often book up weeks in advance. The customer is encouraged to provide their Moving Consultant with multiple preferred move dates at the time of pre-move survey to increase the likelihood of Professional Movers.com being able to offer an available service date. The most commonly requested service dates include the first and last week of every month, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and the week of any holiday. Scheduling an estimate or receiving and signing an estimate, does NOT guarantee a service date.

Reserving a service date is subject to the availability of Professional Movers.com. Service dates are booked only after the following conditions are met:

a. An in person or virtual pre-move survey has been performed by a Professional Movers.com Moving Consultant at the customer’s home or office to verify an exact list of items to be moved. (Exceptions can be made to waive in-person pre-move survey or virtual video call if total number of items being moved is less than 10 items and Moving Consultant approves a customer providing pictures to support an exact list of the items to be moved.)

d. If the service date is available, the customer will receive email notification that their move has been booked and confirmed for the service date.

e. If the Professional Movers.com Scheduling Department determines that the service date the customer wanted is not available, the Scheduling Department will provide the next set of available dates and have the Moving Consultant contact the customer to discuss alternative service dates. If the customer agrees to an alternative service date, the customer will receive email notification that their move has been booked and confirmed for the new service date.

11. HANDLING CUSTOMER REQUEST TO RESCHEDULE SERVICE DATE: In the event that a customer must reschedule their service date, Professional Movers.com will make every attempt possible to reschedule service for an alternate service date and time requested by the customer.

14. ARRIVAL TIME FOR SERVICES ESTIMATED AT MORE THAN 4 HOURS: Professional Movers.com does NOT guarantee a specific or exact arrival time for services. Professional Movers.com does provide each Customer with an estimated 1-hour arrival time window, however an estimated arrival window is just an estimate and could fluctuate.

Unexpected circumstances such as heavy traffic, inclement weather, an issue with equipment, a preceding move taking longer than expected, or an employee related issue may cause delay in arrival time.

20. CUSTOMER DECLARATION OF TRANSIT VALUATION: Valuation is NOT Insurance. Valuation is the mechanism for assigning the value of goods while in the care, custody or control of Professional Mover.com. Customer will be presented the valuation options on the Order for Service / Estimate and again on the date of service, with the Bill of Lading / Contract for Moving Services where the customer can review valuation options and must select a valuation option. The option the customer selects establishes Professional Movers.com’s maximum liability for loss or damage to customer’s goods while in Professional Movers.com’s custody. If Customer fails to select a valuation option, OPTION 1: Limited Liability Protection will apply and no additional charge will be applied to your final charges.


21. TRANSIT VALUATION OPTIONS: Professional Movers.com provides (2) options for valuation. The Customer must select only one valuation option. In the event Professional Movers.com is liable for loss or damage resulting from negligence or failure to use ordinary care while your property is in our care, custody, or control, the valuation option you select will determine Professional Movers.com’s maximum liability for loss or damage. Although Professional Movers.com is fully insured, only the valuation option you select will apply to loss or damage to your property. In the event, you fail to select a valuation option, OPTION 1: Limited Liability Protection will apply and no additional charge will be applied to your final charges. Below you will find Professional Movers.com two valuation options:


TRANSIT VALUATION OPTION 1: Limited Liability Protection: This option is NOT an insurance policy. This means that your property is covered for the minimum agreed value of $0.60 cents per pound per article. Option 1: Limited Value Protection is included in the basic moving charges. There is no deductible for Option 1: Limited Value Protection. In case of loss or damage, this option will NOT pay for the full value of an item. Instead, if Professional Movers.com is found responsible for loss or damage to an item, the weight of the lost or damaged item is multiplied by $.60 cents per pound to determine the settlement coverage. Actual full value of the damaged or lost item is not considered for settlement. Professional Movers.com liability is limited to $.60 cents times the weight of the lost or damaged item. For example, if a 100-pound dresser, valued at $1,000.00 was lost or destroyed Professional Movers.com maximum liability for the dresser would be $60.00. The actual value of the dresser does NOT matter. Customer would receive a settlement of only $60.00 for claim resolution. (100-pound dresser. x $.60 cents = $60.00 coverage) No claim resolution will be honored until all charges for the moving services have been paid in full. Option 1: Limited Liability Coverage has general conditions and limitations that apply to Option 1: Limited Liability Coverage. For a full list of limitations of liability, see Professional Movers.com Terms and Conditions, Section 15. LIABILITY OF PROFESSIONAL MOVERS.COM - LIMITATIONS OF PROFESSIONAL MOVERS.COM LIABILITY:


TRANSIT VALUATION OPTION 2: Full Value Protection: This option is NOT an insurance policy. This option provides coverage based on current replacement value at the time of loss or damage, “up to” the “Full Valuation Protection Policy Value” that you select from the Schedule of Charges Table for Option 2: Full Value Protection. The “Full Valuation Policy Value” selected must be at least $6 per pound times the actual or estimated weight of your shipment. For example, if it is estimated that your shipment weighs 12,500 lbs. You would take 12,500 lbs. and multiply it by $6.00 to determine the Full Valuation Policy value you should select or declare. In this example 12,500 lbs. x $6.00 = $75,000.00. So, from the Schedule of Charges Table, you would select “$6.00 per pound up to $75,000” as your declared value.


The "up to" amount selected from the Schedule of Charges Table is the maximum you could receive in the case of a total loss. Regardless of the number of items lost or damages sustained, you would not receive more than $6.00 per pound or the "up to" amount selected. The value of any high-valued items must be included in the “up to” amount, not in addition to this amount. There is an additional charge for Option 2: Full Value Protection based on the Full Valuation Protection Policy Value you select and the deductible you choose. See Schedule of Charges Table for Option 2: Full Value Protection for costs.


Under Option 2: Full Value Protection: If any article is lost, destroyed or damaged while in Professional Movers.com custody, Professional Movers.com will, at its discretion, offer to do one of the following for each item: repair the item, replace with a similar item, or make a cash settlement for the cost of the repair or the current market replacement value less any applicable deductible. (Be aware, the decision of the resolution is based on whichever cost is lower, if the lowest cost is to have the item repaired, it will always be repaired.) No claim resolution will be honored until the charges for all services have been paid in full. Option 2: Full Value Protection has general conditions and limitations that apply to Option 1: Full Value Protection. For a full list of limitations of liability, see Professional Movers.com Terms and Conditions, Section 25. LIABILITY OF PROFESSIONAL MOVERS.COM - LIMITATIONS OF PROFESSIONAL MOVERS.COM LIABILITY & EXCLUSIONS TO COVERAGE


Transit Valuation Charge for Transit for Option 2 Full Value Protection: If a customer would like to select Option 2 Full Value Protection for Transit, the following one-time charges will apply based on the “up to” valuation amount and deductible selected.

Schedule of Charges for Option 2: Full Value Protection


Transit Valuation Charges
Full Valuation Protection Policy Value
No Deductible
$300 Deductible
$6.00 per pound up to $25,000
$225
$138
$6.00 per pound up to $50,000
$450

$6.00 per pound up to $100,000

$550
$6.00 per pound up to $150,000
$1,350
$825
When a customer declares their policy value for their belongings and the policy value amount falls between those amounts shown on the table, the charge for the next highest policy value amount applies. For example, if it is estimated that a customer’s goods weigh 4,000lbs. and the customer multiplies 4,000 lbs. times $6.00 to determine what their declared value should be, they will see that 4,000 lbs. x $6.00 = $24,000. So, the customer would select “$6.00 per pound up to $25,000” as the declared value since the next highest policy value would apply.


22. STORAGE OF ITEMS AT PROFESSIONAL MOVERS.COM STORAGE WAREHOUSE: For any of the customer’s property being placed into Professional Movers.com Storage warehouse, the following conditions will apply:

a.) Any customer property placed inside Professional Movers.com storage will require a pre-move inventory, and the customer must identify in writing a detailed list of any items of extraordinary value prior to any property being placed into Professional Movers.com Storage Warehouse.

b.) The transit valuation option chosen by the customer for their property while in transit will be the same level of storage valuation while in storage. For example, if a customer selected transit valuation Option 2: Full Value Protection of $6.00 per pound up to $50,000 with a $300 deductible, then the customer will receive the same level of storage valuation protection for customer’s property while in the Professional Movers.com storage warehouse. The customer may NOT select a different transit valuation and storage valuation option or level of coverage.

c.) The monthly charge for storage valuation will be 8.5% of the transit valuation charge. See chart below Section 22 STORAGE VALUATION OPTIONS for Monthly Storage Valuation Charge.

h.) Storage fees are charged in one-month blocks with the 1st month beginning on date items are received into storage. Any additional months after the 1st month are charged on the 1st day of the following month(s). For example, if items are received on January 5th, 2022, the first storage month will be January 2022. On February 1st, 2022, the customer would be charged for the 2nd month of storage. Storage Fees will not be prorated and customers are charged storage based on the total monthly price. Although storage fees incur monthly, Professional Movers.com reserves the right to invoice on a monthly or per project basis depending on the anticipated storage duration and size of the storage space utilized.

i.) There will be a labor charge (warehouse handling) made for placing goods in storage and taking them out.

The “Full Valuation Policy Value” selected must be at least $6 per pound times the actual or estimated weight of your shipment. For example, if it is estimated that your shipment weighs 12,500 lbs. You would take 12,500 lbs. and multiply it by $6.00 to determine the Full Valuation Policy value you should select or declare. In this example 12,500 lbs. x $6.00 = $75,000.00. So, from the Schedule of Charges Table, you would select “$6.00 per pound up to $75,000” as your declared value.

The "up to" amount selected from the Schedule of Charges Table is the maximum you could receive in the case of a total loss. Regardless of the number of items lost or damages sustained, you would not receive more than $6.00 per pound or the "up to" amount selected. The value of any high-valued items must be included in the “up to” amount, not in addition to this amount. There is an additional charge for Option 2: Full Value Protection based on the Full Valuation Protection Policy Value you select and the deductible you choose. See Schedule of Charges Table for Option 2: Full Value Protection for costs.

Under Option 2: Full Value Protection: If any article is lost, destroyed or damaged while in Professional Movers.com custody, Professional Movers.com will, at its discretion, offer to do one of the following for each item: repair the item, replace with a similar item, or make a cash settlement for the cost of the repair or the current market replacement value less any applicable deductible. (Be aware, the decision of the resolution is based on whichever cost is lower, if the lowest cost is to have the item repaired, it will always be repaired.) No claim resolution will be honored until the charges for all services have been paid in full. Option 2: Full Value Protection has general conditions and limitations that apply to Option 1: Full Value Protection. For a full list of limitations of liability, see Professional Movers.com Terms and Conditions, Section 13. Limitations.

Monthly Storage Valuation Charge for Option 2 Full Value Protection: If a customer would like to select Option 2 Full Value Protection for Storage, the following monthly charges will apply based on the “up to” valuation amount and deductible selected.

Schedule of Charges for Storage Valuation Option 2: Full Value Protection


Monthly Storage Valuation Charges
Full Valuation Protection Policy Value

$300 Deductible
$6.00 per pound up to $25,000
$19 per month

$6.00 per pound up to $50,000
$38 per month
$23 per month
$6.00 per pound up to $75,000
$57 per month
$35 per month
$6.00 per pound up to $100,000
$77 per month
$47 per month
$6.00 per pound up to $150,000
$115 per month
$70 per month
When a customer declares their policy value for their belongings and the policy value amount falls between those amounts shown on the table, the charge for the next highest policy value amount applies. For example, if it is estimated that a customer’s goods weigh 4,000lbs. and the customer multiplies 4,000 lbs. times $6.00 to determine what their declared value should be, they will see that 4,000 lbs. x $6.00 = $24,000. So, the customer would select “$6.00 per pound up to $25,000” as the declared value since the next highest policy value would apply.

C. ITEMS OF EXTRAORDINARY VALUE: Articles of extraordinary or unusual nature or value are defined as an item having value in excess of $100 per pound.

Customer/authorized representative agrees that any claim for loss or damage must be supported by proof of value. Customer understands the settlement of items of extraordinary value will be based on the information furnished and/or the value of said property as determined at the time of loss based on today’s actual cash value.

Should loss or irreparable damage occur to one or more pieces of a matching set, Professional Movers.com is responsible for only the one item, not the entire set. Should loss or irreparable damage occur to an item listed on the Declaration of Items of Extraordinary Value, the customer is required to make notation of loss or damage at the time of delivery.
