TIGER MOVING INSURANCE OPTIONS

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION APPLIES TO BOTH INSURANCE OPTIONS:  

Our insurance options DO NOT COVER damage to: (1) refrigerators, (2) appliances, (3) exercise equipment, (4) particle board furniture, (5) wood floors, (6) laminate flooring, (7) glass furniture items, (8) contents of containers not packed by our movers, (9) the customer’s home, building or land of any sort, (10) glass furniture items, (11) bicycles, (12) ceramics, (13) plants, (14) lamps & lamp shades, (15) vacuum cleaners, (16) electronics, (17) marble, (18) glassware of any kind, (19) pictures, (20) mirrors.  We strongly recommend transporting items 11 – 20 on your own.  We are not liable for damaged functionality of appliances resulting from disassembling, assembling, or transporting.  Please double check appliance connections as we are not responsible for water leaks. In some cases, tracking soil onto flooring is inevitable, thus we are not responsible for any resulting damage.  Our liability for damage on “load only” jobs (no transportation of goods performed by Tiger Moving) terminates once the truck has been loaded. We highly recommend contacting your insurance agent to obtain a moving endorsement for your current policy.

Option 1:  FREE: Standard Insurance ($60 max refund per item):

Standard South Carolina Mover’s Transit Coverage will be automatically applied to all articles at a compensation rate of $0.60 or 60 cents per pound.  Everything is valued at 60¢ per pound against damage during the move.  For example: if a chair weighs 10 lbs and is broken during the move, regardless of the value, the settlement will be $6.00 based on $0.60/lb/item.  This is the standard minimum coverage in the moving industry.

 

Option 2:  $100 PER TRUCK: Maximum Benefit Insurance ($300 maximum refund per item):

Tiger Moving LLC will pay and/or coordinate repairs for damaged items (up to $300 per damaged item).  If repairs are not possible, Tiger Moving will reimburse the customer for the current value of the damaged item using straight-line depreciation and industry standard depreciation schedules (up to $300 per damaged item).  For example: The value of a used table that is damaged during the move will be determined by it’s current market value using straight-line depreciation or the cost to repair said item, whichever is lower.  This coverage does not include the functionality of any appliance or electronic device as there is no way to pre-test functionality.  See the paragraph above for damage exclusions.  Customer agrees to pay a one-time fee of $100 PER TRUCK for this coverage.
