Verified Statement of Claim for Lost or Damaged Goods

We are sorry you have found it necessary to report a claim. Roadway Vanlines attempts to settle all claims in an equitable and timely manner. We appreciate your cooperation in filling out the form. Upon receipt of the form, a file will be established and assigned to an adjuster.

General Instructions: 

A. Please retain the damaged articles, including shipping cartons. These items must be available for inspection.

B. Time limit for filing claim is 9 months from date of delivery or conversion to permanent storage. The 9-month claim filing period does not apply to government, military and some national account contracts. Contact your booking agent, transportation management office or move coordinator for specific claim filing information.

C. Please have shipping documents available at time of inspection.

D. Transportation charges must be paid prior to claim settlement.

You signed for your valuation decision on move day on the bill of lading. An example of the difference between the two valuation options are: if a 10 lb chair were to sustain damage during the relocation process, coverage would be applied as follows: Option 1: Road Way Van Lines would be obligated to repair, replace, or provide an appropriate cash settlement after application of the deductible. Option 2: Road Way Van Lines would be liable up to $6.00 (60 cents x 10lbs). *Note: option 2 is $1/lb. only in the state of New Jersey. Regardless of any previous written or oral communications, you must include on this form all articles that you claim are either lost or damaged as well as any documents that would support your claim in order to receive compensatory consideration. Do not destroy, repair or dispose of any claimed item until full settlement has been completed.
