Furniture Storage terms and conditions are important. Please note the following:
claims excludes liability for jewellery and other similar items
any claim limits the company's liability to £40 per item in the event of loss or damage caused as a result of our negligence items are defined as individual or a total box of contents or any separately listed items as per an inventory accepted by the company on the move day
the company limits the company's liability to £75 per premises in the event of damage to your premises
the company excludes liability for owner packed goods other than negligence.
the company specifies the time limits for submitting claims for loss or damage to 48hrs after the move and must be submitted in writing
jewellery and other items should not be included for removal.
If you want to do your own packing you need to consider the following:
the company is responsible for the loss or damage caused by its negligence but not by inadequate or poor quality packing. Goods may be damaged by other causes over which a removal contractor has no control.
Secondly, our limit of liability is £40 per item or box and this will not be enough for some items.
the company recognises that its customers need proper financial protection and offers Extra care handling charge to cover goods while they are being packed, loaded, transported, unloaded and unpacked by the company. If your move involves storage, this can be arranged too.
What Type of Extra care handling charge Do I Require the company recommends to all customers that they take out Full "All Risks" - Extra care handling charge. This does not literally cover anything that may happen, but does include cover for damage by breakage, vehicle accidents, fire, storm and theft.
You can choose Extra care handling charge on a reinstatement basis which means "new for old", or an indemnity basis which means "like for like".
New for Old Extra care handling charge
If something is totally lost or destroyed you will be paid the new replacement value or the item will be replaced as new. If the item can be repaired, our agent will arrange this if it is cheaper and gives a satisfactory result.
Like for Like Extra care handling charge
Claims will be settled on the basis of the new value minus an allowance for age, wear and tear.
Check the value of your goods.
Once you have decided between "new for old " and "like for like" you must calculate the value of your goods.
This is your responsibility, because neither the company nor our agent know the value of your property.
Claims Time Limit
For goods delivered by the company, claims must be notified within 48 hours of delivery. If another company collects goods from a Furniture Storage warehouse, claims must be notified when the goods are handed out by the company staff. Our agent will refuse to pay claims if you do not adhere to these time limits.
Provision of service We will do our best to provide service to you by any date we have agreed with you but we do not guarantee to do so.
Matching Pairs and Full Sets of Items
Like most household contents policies, if one of a pair of items or part of a set is lost or damaged, our agent will only pay for the individual item that is lost or damaged. Our agent will not pay for the replacement of the entire set.
Mechanical and Electrical Breakdown
It is not possible of the company or our agent to check that electrical goods are working before a move takes place and our agent obviously have no responsibility for pre-existing damage.
This means that our agent will only pay for mechanical and electrical breakdown or derangement if there is obviously damage to outer casings.
Damp & Mildew
From time to time Furniture Storage receives Notice from customers for items that appear damp or damaged by mould or mildew. Be aware that the company's warehouses are not heated. In winter, the ambient temperature and humidity in a warehouse is much lower than a centrally-heated home.
The higher temperature at home means that its air is almost certainly more humid. If soft furnishings, upholstered furniture, bedding and curtains come from a warm environment into a cold environment, the air in the fibres will cool and deposit a 'moisture load', and a feeling of dampness.
This arises because the temperature and humidity in your house is high, not because the warehouses leak! We are happy to discuss this with you.
Packing your Goods
Furniture Storage offers a 2 man packing service at £40 per hour, plus the cost of packaging materials.
Our agent will not pay for the loss or damage to goods packed by the customers, only if there is total loss of all the consignment. If you find this unacceptable, you must allow us to pack your goods.
