Take a quick survey of your friends and chances are, many of them can share horror stories about moving companies that damaged their property during a move. This isn’t surprising because lots of things can go wrong. Delicate items can be bumped and broken, boxes can be lost and both your new and old apartments can be damaged during the moving process. Many people assume that a moving company has insurance to cover loss and damage. The truth is a little more complicated. Because companies that offer insurance are regulated by the state, most moving companies do not actually offer insurance. Many moving companies do offer some protection to clients in the form of mover’s valuation.
