Extended Protection Program - Moving Valuation

Moving Valuation for Your Move

Moving is often a stressful ordeal and the further the moving distance, the greater degree of anxiety to a move. National Van Lines offers an excellent Extended Protection Program for extended moving valuation coverage protection during relocations. If you are relying on the coverage provided by your employer, make certain that the amount of coverage is enough for your shipment. Many employers only protect their employees’ belongings up to a certain dollar amount. You have the option to purchase additional valuation coverage from the moving company on your own.

Why Should You Apply for Moving Valuation?

National Van Lines has a very low claims ratio due to the quality packing materials, extremely experienced staff, and the best transportation services available. However, there are a few key reasons why we recommend securing extra coverage for your move.

  • In most cases, your homeowners’ insurance policy will not cover loss and damage to your household goods and possession during transit.
  • Basic coverage is included in our moving services. However, if your shipment contains a large volume of items or valuable items, basic coverage may not be sufficient.
  • Our professional movers will take every precaution to eliminate risks; however, unforeseen circumstances could still occur during moves. Applying for additional moving valuation to insure all aspects of your move can ensure you are adequately compensated for loss or damage that may occur during unavoidable circumstances.

How Much Does Moving Valuation Cost?

The cost of our Extended Protection Program will vary depending on the value of your shipment, the weight, the options you select and your destination country. Regardless of your requirements and the choices you choose for your extended moving valuation, the total cost for coverage will only be a small fraction of your actual moving cost. It is well worth the additional peace of mind!

How To Apply for the Extended Protection Program

To obtain moving valuation and full replacement value coverage from our Extended Protection Program, speak with your Move Coordinator or the National Van Lines Customer Service team. Your National Van Lines Move Coordinator will assist you with the completion of your inventory valuation or help you determine a lump sum value.

Other Considerations

  • The program does not provide coverage for money, securities, valuable papers, documents or data stored on tapes or disks. These items should be carried with you for maximum protection.
  • Pets, plants and perishable items are also not covered by the program and should not be included in the inventory list.
