Liability Coverage

SureMove offers two types of coverage depending on your needs.

  1. SureMove standard liability coverage is included at no additional cost and is limited to ten cents per pound. This coverage is based strictly on the weight of the item, not the declared value and only applies to damage that Estes SureMove causes such as water leaking into the trailer, fire, trailer accident/roll over or theft of the entire trailer.   
  1. Declared Value Coverage: coverage up to $100,000 maximum per shipment at a cost of fifty cents per $100 of coverage, with a minimum charge of $50 per bill of lading. The minimum of $50 equates to $10,000 of declared value coverage. 

To qualify, a packing list must be completed and provided prior to the move. This packing list will detail the value per item you wish to cover.  Coverage is against catastrophic loss due to collision or overturn of transporting land conveyance, Acts of God, water damage due to holes in trailer, fire, smoke, explosion, riot or civil commotion and theft of entire trailer. Coverage commences once the fifth wheel has been connected to the trailer.  Coverage ceases once trailer has been tendered at destination or 90 days after receipt of container by Estes SureMove, whichever occurs first. Damages must be reported within three (3) days of delivery.

Damages such as gouges, scratches, nicks, broken table legs, etc. are excluded because SureMove does not pack, package or load your items.

The two coverage options cannot be combined. Purchase of Declared Value Coverage replaces SureMove standard liability.  The side by side comparison below shows the different coverages.
