INSURANCE COVERAGE

Simulated Wood Furniture: Our movers cannot be responsible for damage to simulated wood, particle board, or pressed board furniture. This type of material is structurally weak and is not repairable.

Electrical Goods:
Our movers are not liable for internal damage to electronic goods if no external damage has been caused. Certain electronics may develop unavoidable faults no matter how carefully they are handled.
Appliances:
Movers cannot be responsible for dents or scratches on major appliances. Many of these are covered by a thin metal that is extremely vulnerable to dents and scratches.
Items With Water:
Freezers, refrigerators, waterbeds, aquariums, and the like must be emptied and drained prior to being moved.
Fragile Items:
Dishware, porcelain, glasses, pictures, lamp shades, and other specialty items are not covered by our movers’ insurance unless packed by our professional movers using adequate packing materials. You are welcome to purchase your own packing materials (packing paper, bubble wrap, foam peanuts, cartons, tape, etc) and pack such items yourself prior to your move, and our movers will take great precaution to ensure they are transported as safely as possible, but they will not be insured.
Boxed Items:
All boxed items are considered the client/owner 's responsibility. The condition of any item(s) packed by the customer/owner prior to moving is not covered by Rapid Stor Movers, unless there is clear proof that our movers have caused physical damage to the box itself. It is also the customer’s responsibility to inspect all boxes for physical damage upon their delivery prior to the movers’ departure. Rapid Stor Movers will not accept any claims of physical damage to boxes after its movers have left their assignment’s delivery location.
Self-inspection:
It is the customer's responsibility, before signing their final receipt prior to the movers leaving, (i) to inspect their belongings to ensure they were delivered in good condition; and (ii) to inspect the truck’s interior to ensure that nothing has been left behind.

If at any time you then want the crew to stop, say so and they will.
Absent Customers:
We encourage our customers to remain with us throughout the entire move, not least because when we are moving items such as furniture you can then point out any scratches, marks, or dents that we may have missed, or vice versa. If for whatever reason you are not available during your move, or if you need to leave during your move, we will need you to sign a release acknowledging that you accept all of the items in the condition that we bring them to you.
