Damage Claims
Interstate movers allow nine months from the time of delivery to submit a claim for damage to your household goods. Local move claims must be submitted within 30 days. Your shipment is considered delivered if it is unloaded into a residence, public/self storage unit, or into permanent storage. To file a claim you must request a claim form from the movers. All claims must be made in writing, include sufficient information to identify the item, and must include the inventory number and estimated amount for the repair or estimated replacement amount. If you do not have the original receipt supply the manufacturer of the item should be acceptable.

If you have done everything outlined in this information booklet with regards to notations of damages and missing items, and declaring high value items with the mover, there should be no problems with having your claim settled quickly and fairly. If you have difficulty however , or haven’t heard from the mover within 30 days of submitting your claim please contact your CRS Consultant. They will assist you in whatever they can.

IMPORTANT: The success of any claim is dependent on the notations made on the inventory sheet at the time of loading and delivery (see previous: Loading Day, Delivery Day). You only have one opportunity to file a claim, therefore, it is imperative that you inspect all of your household goods prior to filing. Also, the movers will NOT settle a claim if your shipment has been moved from the location of original delivery. As mentioned previously in this booklet, movers limit liability to: self packed boxes, electronics, high value items that are not declared prior to loading, and particle board.
