Local Commercial Moving Protection

Marathon offers three protection options from which you may choose prior to the start of your move. All options can be explained in full and made available to you up to the loading of your items on our truck.

Three Options

The option you select establishes Marathon Moving Company, Inc.’s maximum liability for your goods, subject to the rules contained in Marathon Moving Company, Inc.’s tariff and the terms and conditions on the back of our bill of lading. Please note that options A and B are for shipments in transit within the state of Massachusetts. Option C can be applied to both transit and storage.

Option A: Basic Liability

As a licensed common carrier in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Marathon Moving is required to provide Basic Liability coverage for all goods moved. If you do not select additional coverage, this coverage is automatically provided to you at no charge.

With Basic Liability

Under this coverage, our maximum legal liability is limited to $0.60 per pound per article. This is insufficient protection for most situations. It is only recommended when accompanied by an insurance policy that covers goods in transit.

Option B: Transit Damage Protection

For customers seeking some additional protection, we offer Transit Damage Protection. This option meets most needs at a reasonable charge of $99. Transit Damage Protection limits Marathon Moving Company, Inc.’s liability to the first $3000 at Actual Cash Value for damage repair/replacement. For amounts in excess of $3000, Marathon’s liability will be limited to $0.60 per pound per article.

With Transit Damage Protection

If any article is lost, destroyed, or damaged while in transit and in custody of Marathon Moving Company, Inc., Marathon will cover the least of the following amounts: the actual cash value of the property immediately before the loss; the cost of reasonably restoring the property to its condition immediately before the loss; the cost of replacing the property with substantially identical property. All claims are subject to the rules contained in Marathon Moving Company, Inc.’s tariff and the terms and conditions on the back of our bill of lading.

Option C: Actual Cash Value

This option is based on the declared actual cash value of the entire shipment by the shipper. The cost of this option is based on the value declared and can be found on our premiums valuation table.

With Actual Cash Value

If any article is lost, destroyed, or damaged while in transit and in custody of Marathon Moving Company, Inc., Marathon will cover the least of the following amounts: the actual cash value of the property immediately before the loss; the cost of reasonably restoring the property to its condition immediately before the loss; the cost of replacing the property with substantially identical property. All claims are subject to the rules contained in Marathon Moving Company, Inc.’s tariff and the terms and conditions on the back of our bill of lading.
