Option 1: Released Rate Liability (also referred to as Replacement Value Protection - RVP)

This is a basic coverage included at no extra charge, as set by the Transportation Act, and is limited to $0.60 per pound per article, based on the actual weight of the carton or item with a max of $50.00 CDN per item.   Customer packed goods are carried at their own risk unless there is visible damage to the carton.  RVP is a plan to protect you if the unexpected happens to your personal items during your move. Should items get lost or damaged during your move, Ray's wil repair the item to its original condition or replace at today's market price. This protection is only limited by the amount of valuation you select, with the only requirement being that a minimum of $10.00 per pound be achieved. For example, if you had 10,000 pounds, then the lowest valuation you could apply to your goods is $100,000.00. You can value your goods higher at your descretion. An additional charge is applied to your move based on your valuation.

Option 2: Premium Value Protection

This option provides enhanced protection for your belongings based on the valuation of the estimated weight of belongings at $10.00 per pound per article ($250 deductible). Premium Value Protection charges are included as an optional charge in your quote. You may increase the value but not decrease the minimum valuation that is determined by the estimated weight of your shipment. Damage to a single item is limited to $2500 CDN and must be identified to the movers prior to handling and itemized on the bill of lading.
  • Items of Extraordinary Value - Items valued much higher than $10.00 per pound per article are considered“extraordinary value” and must be declared and indicated on the bill of lading under instructions.Extraordinary value items must be professionally packed and/or crated by the mover or his agent before moving.
