International Property Protection
Shipper Protection Overview
You have two options for Global Property Protection. Please consider your options carefully and make sure you fully understand your selection
Itemized Value Inventory
If you have taken careful inventory of your belongings, the Itemized Valued Inventory protection may be an option to consider. With this option, you will provide a complete list of the items to be shipped and their estimated replacement value at destination. Please note that the protection charge is based on the value of the items declared. If items are not declared, no protection is afforded to them. The total of all values listed is the total amount of the protection.
Weight Multiplier (Lump Sum)
For most customers, UniGroup Worldwide recommends the Weight Multiplier (Lump Sum) option. With this option, you will take the weight of the shipment and use a multiplier, which must be a minimum of $10 U.S. per pound. The average shipment is valued at approximately $15 per pound. If you have many antiques and/or other high-value items, the value of the multiplier can be as high as desired to meet the overall value of the shipment. When the $15 per pound (or greater) multiplier is used, there is no additional cost for the optional coverage of mold and mildew, mechanical malfunction and replacement of non-damaged matching items in pairs and sets. All of your possessions in the shipment are covered, and should there be damage or loss of items, UniGroup Relocation will handle the repair or replacement of your belongings.
Please note that anything valued at $1,500 or greater must be listed on the high-value inventory to alert the moving crew to provide additional packing and/or possibly crating, regardless of the option chosen. If you choose the Weight Multiplier (Lump Sum) option, the total of the High-Value Inventory will be added to the value determined by the weight multiplier.
