Movers customarily take every precaution to make sure that while your shipment is in their possession no items are lost, damaged or destroyed. However, despite their efforts, articles are sometimes lost or damaged during the move. Or sometimes disputes arise over the charges that were assessed for your move.
If any of your household goods are damaged or lost, report the facts promptly and in detail on the van driver’s copy (original) of the inventory sheet before you sign it. Then, file your claim in writing with your mover for any loss or damage that occurred or if you wish to dispute the additional charges that applied for your move. If you are unable to get your claim with your mover settled to your satisfaction, you can use arbitration as a means of obtaining a resolution.
For any dispute with your mover regarding loss or damage that occurred to the articles in your shipment, charges related to the shipment, of have a general complaint about your move, you should first file a claim with your mover. If your mover denies your claim or provides a settlement offer that you are not satisfied with, you may elect to use arbitration to have your claim resolved.
