This protection is limited only by the amount of valuation you select. It is important, therefore, that you recognize and establish the realistic replacement value of all your possessions.
Our only requirement is that your shipment be protected at minimum coverage of not less than $5.00 per pound of the actual weight of your household possessions.
For example, if the actual total weight of your household items is 10,000 pounds, you must apply replacement cost coverage of not less than $50,000. (10,000 pounds X $5.00/lb.)
