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.

recommends to all customers that they take out Full "All Risks" -
Extra care handling charge. This does not literally cover anything

You can choose Extra care handling charge on a reinstatement basis
which means "new for old", or an indemnity basis which means "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
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
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.
