How Much Does Moving Valuation Cost?

Moving valuation can be confusing! That’s why we’ve provided this simple tool to help calculate the cost of moving valuation in WA state and pull back the curtain a little on how this portion of the industry works.

We have a great track record with our customers, but sometimes there’s no way around it: damages do happen. If you have homeowners insurance, check to see what they’ll cover before selecting one of the options. If not, it can be a good idea to add an extra layer of protection for your items.

Quick disclaimer: All licensed moving companies in Washington offer these same levels of insurance. Prices may vary a little bit, but the insurance options are mandated by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. You can check out the UTC Guidelines here. This is the most up to date info from the recent changes made on July 1st of 2023. Industry-standard for depreciated replacement value is 20% per year for furniture items, and there are exceptions to the valuation like pets, plants, items of extraordinary value, and items made of particleboard.
