A. We have no problem moving most houseplants if the move is less than 50 miles. Since plants are fragile and cannot be boxed or otherwise protected we cannot guarantee that they will survive the trip. Plants can require a lot of truck space since they cannot be stacked. If your family has access to an SUV or truck, our movers can assist with loading or unloading plants into your personal vehicle.
A. The most economical protection available is Released Value, since it is offered at no additional charge. However, the protection is minimal. Under this option, the mover assumes liability for no more than 60 cents per pound per article.
There is no additional charge for Released Value. However, you must sign a specific statement on the bill of lading or contract agreeing to it. But remember, it compensates you according to the weight of the item, not its actual value. And, if you do not select Released Value, your shipment will automatically be transported at the Full Value Protection level of liability and you will be assessed the applicable charge.
Full Value Protection and Released Value are not insurance policies governed by State insurance laws; instead, they are Federal contractual tariff levels of liability authorized

A. To keep your smaller items as safe and secure as possible during the move, they will need to be boxed. This also includes such things as TV’s, paintings, lamps and even mattresses. To protect your furniture, Mashav Relocation experts use special plastic covers in combination with a protective layer of thick blankets.
A. Mashav Relocation requires a $100 deposit in order to reserve your moving date and crew. We do this to ensure that you have the correct equipment and necessary staff available on the day of the move and to protect ourselves against customers who schedule more than one mover and then use whichever company shows up first. Believe it or not, that does happen. Your $100 deposit will be deducted from the total cost of the move. Please note that your deposit is refundable if you cancel your reservation 48hr prior to your pickup date.
