TWO MEN WILL MOVE YOU
Here is the text of a letter that is sent to folks
that would like us to move them:
are based on loading time, double drive time, and
unloading time. Double drive time means, for
example, if it takes 15 minutes to drive from the load
address to the unload address, you will be charged 30
minutes for the drive time. Time starts at your
door and ends when the truck is unloaded and the
furniture placed. Wardrobes are furnished free for
your use the day of the move. There is a charge
for all other boxes and materials.
provided at no additional cost to the shippers is $.60
per pound per article. Depreciated declared-value
coverage can be obtained by the shipper at $140.00 for
the first $20,000 worth of coverage and $35.00 for each
additional $5,000 worth of coverage. The
terms and conditions are listed on the back side of the
combined agreement for moving services and freight bill.
As professionals, we want to move your belongings as
quickly, efficiently, carefully, and as courteously as
possible. We also want you to be aware that all
moving contracts have certain exceptions which are many
times not discussed or are glossed over by other less
professional movers. To prevent this, we listed
below the main - or most common ones:
- Mechanical Malfunctions - without severe
exterior damage, for example, if your TV worked
before the move, but now does not, the mover is not
responsible unless the cabinet is damaged.
- We do not service ice makers.
- Valuables - jewelry, silver, coins/money,
documents, guns, etc. You should try to take
this type of item(s) along with you in your car, or
make some other arrangements.
- Articles of extra-ordinary value - no liability
shall be provided for loss or damage to items such
as original manuscripts, first editions or
autographed copies of books, antique furniture,
heirlooms, paintings, sculptures, and other works of
art except under circumstances where each such
article is specifically listed on the carrier's
- Your packing - inside cartons contents - no
coverage unless obvious damage to carton. Keep
the damaged carton to verify your claim.
- Movement of unpacked or uncrated items as
requested by you, when these times normally require
packing or crating. For example, if a lamp and
shade have not been packed and really should have
been, they cannot be safely moved, and damage to
them would not be covered. This also applies
to pictures, mirrors, and glass.
- Particle board furniture, no coverage if item
falls apart while being moved.
- Hoisting - no liability coverage.
- Hazardous materials - not accepted for shipping:
Lubricants (motor oils)
Batteries (wet or dry)
Swimming Pool Chemicals
Small Arms Ammunition
Wood Oil Stains
Paint or Varnish
Paint or Varnish Removers
Butane / Propane / Gasoline
Scuba Diving Tanks
Please check everything as it comes off the van.
It will be your responsibility to check to see that
everything was delivered. If there is damage,
please call this office for a claim form, or submit
the claim in writing.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.
