Damages are usually covered in most contracts by weight, not dollar value. The usual rate is $.60 (sixty cents) per pound. So for example a $1000 (one thousand dollars) hutch weighing 200 pounds that was damaged would have a possible maximum coverage of only $120 (one hundred twenty dollars). Additional insurance can be purchased, and make sure that the additional insurance appears on the contract before signing.
Most contracts are based upon an estimate, and are subject to substantial increases on the day of moving based upon volume, staffing, time, weight, and equipment. The majority of the issues on moving day are related to increase costs over the estimate. Protect yourself: require the Mover to provide a binding quote. A binding quote will provide a firm cost that you can expect to pay on moving day.
