Laws for furniture removalists: Are movers liable for damage caused by moving?
If your household effects are damaged when you move with the moving company, you should act quickly. In principle, the moving company is liable for household items that are transported. However, the damage will only be paid for if it was caused 100 percent by the employees. If something breaks in the moving boxes you have packed, the damage will not be paid. You should have packed the household goods properly.
If your removal goods are transported with a truck over 3.5 tons, this is considered commercial goods transport. And the furniture haulage company must take out its own liability insurance for goods and delay damage. For smaller transport vehicles, it is advisable for customers to take out additional insurance.
As the client, you assume liability for certain valuables such as jewels, money, certificates and documents. You can conclude separate contracts with the shipping company for plants, animals and antiques. If the damage does occur, it is important that you act quickly. In the case of obvious damage, a written damage report must be submitted to the furniture shipping company within one day or at the latest on the following day. In the event of hidden or minor damage, as well as the loss of items, you have to report this in writing to the shipping company.
