Shifting Insurance coverage and Shifting Firm Troubles

By | November 5, 2018

Hello of us! In a bizarre scenario – we moved again in April. It was just a few blocks, so we moved our stuff, then employed a transferring firm for our furnishings. They broken a TON of the gadgets. Once I booked with the transferring firm, I requested “Will the transferring insurance coverage you’re providing cowl damages to my belongings?” They responded, “YES.” They knew it was furniture-only at this level. Sadly, the insurance coverage firm received’t pay out as “We solely cowl full packing and unpacking strikes, and your transfer was furniture-only.” The transferring firm says at MOST, they’ll solely pay the obligatory 40¢/lb, as they “simply supplied the insurance coverage as a comfort and it’s not their fault if I didn’t perceive what I signed for.” Okay, to sum up: 1) Packing up furnishings, transferring it, and unpacking isn’t “packing and unpacking.” 2) The transferring firm informed me the supplied insurance coverage would cowl the transfer, and I paid $200 for it. 3) Declared worth protection, damages of (IF they’d paid out full worth for every broken merchandise) ~$1550. 4) I’ve the whole lot in writing. I would really like the transferring firm to pay out, seeing as how they bought me insurance coverage which might NEVER have lined my kind of transfer BUT assured me it could (so I didn’t know to search for different insurance coverage!) however I’m undecided if that’s true legally? Complicating issue: I’m in Puerto Rico. Be happy to reply for the remainder of the US, simply making an attempt to get perspective. Sigh. submitted by /u/Aggabator [link] [comments]
