We understand that your items are a lifetime’s worth of personal possessions and furnishings that have both material and sentimental value.

We offer several options for protecting your goods during the move. The option you select sets the limits of our liability for any loss or damage to your belongings.

Please take time to review and understand your options.

Full Replacement Valuation

This coverage costs extra but provides more comprehensive coverage for the real value of your goods. With this plan, any items lost or damaged during your move will be repaired or replaced with similar items without depreciation for their age.

The way it works:

  • You declare a lump sum value for your shipment. There is a minimum required declaration of $5.00 per pound (so that, for example, a 10,000 lbs. shipment will be valued at a minimum of $50,000).
  • You select your desired deductible – $0, $250, or $500.

The final price for this protection plan depends on the value you declare for your goods and the level of deduction you select.

Release Rate Valuation

Release Rate Valuation of 60¢ per pound per article is minimal coverage liability that is provided at no charge to you. Note that this often does not cover the actual cost of replacing or repairing your goods

For example, if a 10 lb. laptop computer were lost or destroyed during your move, you would only be reimbursed as follows: 10 lbs. x 60¢ per lb. = $6.00

Replacement Value Insurance

You can also choose to insure your move using a third-party insurance provider. This is typically called Replacement Value Insurance and should cover you for the full true replacement value of your goods.

If you have renter’s or homeowner’s insurance, you may already be covered or may be able to purchase an inexpensive rider. Check with your insurance agent.

If you choose to purchase relocation insurance, you should expect to receive at least the following terms:

  • Full replacement value coverage
  • 90-day guaranteed claim resolution
  • 30 days of free storage insurance
  • Coverage against fire, theft, and acts of nature

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.

Does U.Santini Moving & Storage offer insurance?

Absolutely! We offer various types of insurance to protect your belongings, including a full replacement option. The cost depends on how much your things are worth and the deductible you choose.

How soon should I schedule my move?

It's a good idea to book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move. If you're moving during the holidays or in the summer, it's best to schedule it 12 weeks ahead. But if your move is between September and May, you can often book movers with just 2 weeks' notice. The key is to secure your moving crew as soon as you have all the details about your move.

Do you provide packing supplies?

Yes, we do. Along with the necessary boxes and packing materials for your move, we offer various 'Saver' packages tailored to the size of your home. If you don't use all the boxes you purchased, you can return them to our team after the move, and we'll refund the unused portion.
