When you choose Allied for your
relocation, you can rest assured that your possessions have the best moving protection
available. Our experience, training and stringent standards have made us the moving
service more families trust than any other van line in the world. Our expert packers,
specialized packing techniques, inventory tracking and specially equipped moving
vans are designed to ensure a safe, worry free move so you can focus on the other
concerns facing you during this often unsettling life change.
Occasionally, no matter how hard we try, an item may be damaged. That's why
Allied offers Extra Care Protection (ECP). ECP is a level of valuation coverage
for your household goods up to an amount determined by you that allows Allied to
settle your damage claim and resolve the situation quickly, keeping you happy with
our moving services during your relocation.
Extra Care Protection - Optimal Household Moving Coverage
Allied offers you total peace of mind with ECP, the most comprehensive protection
plan in the industry. ECP covers the cost to repair or replace, whichever is less,
any household item that is properly documented as lost, damaged, or destroyed.
Coverage of Pairs/Sets During Household Moving
ECP coverage extends to matched sets and pairs such as lamps, candlesticks or end
tables. If you choose ECP and your damaged item cannot be repaired to its original
condition, we will provide you a quality replacement compensation.*
*Complete replacement of multiple item sets of china, gold and silver flatware,
and crystal glassware are excluded from pairs and sets protection under the ECP
Extra Care For Your Valuables
If your high value items (defined as items valued at $100 per pound or higher),
please let us know and we can help you prepare a High Value Inventory Form. You
must present the High Value Inventory Form to your Personal Relocation Consultant
and/or your driver prior to packing your household goods so that we can be sure
your shipment has the correct level of ECP coverage.
Basic Liability Protection for Household Moving
We also offer Basic Liability Protection, which provides coverage limited to a maximum
of $0.60 per pound per article should your goods get damaged or lost. Keep in mind,
though, when it comes to protecting your belongings, one size does not fit all.
The level of protection you need may be greater than minimum levels based on your
total shipment weight. Be sure to consider your high-value items in the determination
of the protection coverage best suited for your belongings. Basic Liability Protection
is free of charge with your move, but you must confirm this level of coverage in
