For example, valuation is similar to “bluebook” value of an automobile; in the event of a total loss the maximum amount to be recovered is the “bluebook” value or valuation. The value you declare as the maximum worth/valuation of your property does not increase depending on how or why the property was damaged. By signing this form, you are waiving certain valuable coverage which protects your property above the minimum amounts set by law. Please read carefully before making your selection.

There is a charge for the vehicle and manpower for each hour between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. local time (excluding Sundays or state/national holidays). The alternative is unloading your shipment at an agent's warehouse. You will have storage, handling and delivery from warehouse expenses, and consequently it may be less expensive to pay for waiting time, if it is not for an excessive length of time. The carrier is not obligated to provide waiting time, but we will do so when it does not result in the delay in the delivery of other customers' shipments or does not cause other undue inconvenience to the carrier.
some articles included in a shipment (i.e., camper shells, boats, canoes, boat trailers, etc.) are comparatively light and occupy space in the van that is not commensurate with their weight. For instance, one might load 4,000 pounds of furniture and cartons in the space taken by a 1,500-pound boat. To compensate for this inequity, our tariff provides a schedule of additional weights for such articles.
