Although the very best care will be taken when handling your belongings, accidental damage is sometimes inevitable given the nature of this business. For intrastate and interstate moves that originate in California, the basic valuation provided by the mover at no cost to the shipper is $.60 cents per pound per article. This means the shipper (customer), regardless of the actual value, declares a maximum value of the goods $.60 cents per pound per article, pays nothing, and in the event of a loss, will recover a maximum of $.60 per pound based on the weight of the lost or damaged item.

Oz Moving & Storage California maintains general liability insurance cover in excess of $5,000,000, as well as Workers Compensation and Disability insurance. Some apartment buildings require documentation of such coverage in the form of a certificate; many as well have minimum limits of liability requirements. A “certificate of insurance” is generally documentation of General Liability, Automobile Liability and Workers Compensation insurance. The certificate of insurance does not provide coverage for your goods; additional valuation or insurance must be purchased separately.
