Charges

1. Moving Cost: In Connecticut all moves within the state must be charged by the hour. Additional services such as appliance service, piano service, pool table service, jacuzzi service, swing sets service, etc.. may be extra.
Movers in Connecticut are not permitted to give “guaranteed” price or “binding” estimates. You will be charged for the actual services the mover performs by the hour.

2. Packing: Your mover can pack all or some of your items for an additional charge. If you decide to do your own packing, keep in mind the mover is not responsible for damage to items you packed. When packing your shipment be sure to note which boxes are fragile and the room the box should go to. Some items are restricted and should not be packed – food and plants can not be shipped. Do not pack – your moving documents, personal papers, jewelry, cash, high value items, and flammables or combustibles.

3. Valuation: Movers can’t sell “insurance”, but they can offer basically the same thing, called valuation. Just like insurance there are different coverages. You don’t have to purchase valuation, your homeowners policy might already have you covered. If you don’t purchase coverage, the movers liability is .60 cents per pound of the damaged article.
