However, there are times when clients' needs and special requests might come with certain risks, and we cannot be responsible for the outcome of these requests. In order to avoid any misunderstandings on the actual day of the move, please read carefully our company’s policy below.

 

Local Moving

  1. Moving Cost. The final cost of your move will be determined by multiplying the actual number of hours our moving crew had worked by the hourly rate indicated on your estimate.

  2. Payment. All charges must be paid in full at the time of delivery. All payments for services rendered must be in the form of cash, bank certified check, money order, or credit card. We do not accept personal checks. There is a 5% convenience fee with use of a credit or debit card. We cannot accept American Express cards.

    1. Payment for hourly moves will be calculated as the time loading being equal to the time unloading unless the logistics of the unload is different. Each Flight of stairs is plus/minus 30 minutes. Elevator is plus/minus one hour. Walking distance over 75 feet is plus/minus one hour.

    2. Payment for flat rate moves are due at the time of delivery.

  3. Labor Time. Labor time starts upon the arrival of our crew at your location and ends upon the departure from your final destination. Labor time is calculated based on 15 minute increments at the rate indicated on the estimate. Any travel between the origin and the destination is considered to be part of the labor time.

  4. Travel Time. Please keep in mind that you will be billed for the travel time from our parking location in Davie, Fl to your origin, and for the travel time from your final destination back to our parking. Those charges are billed at a flat rate of 1 hour for moves within 30 miles of zip code 33325 and billed in 15 minute increments for distances over 30 miles of zip code 33325 and are calculated by the reading of the GPS or Google Maps.

  5. Arrival time frame. Please keep in mind that we do not provide a specific time of arrival. We offer 2 hour arrival time frames for all jobs scheduled in the morning and 2-5 hour arrival time frames for all the jobs scheduled in the afternoon. Wyvern takes pride in showing up on time, however there are situations that are beyond our control. In case if our crew will arrive at your location late, you will receive a $15.00 compensation for each hour that we are late.

  6. Customer presence. The customer or an authorized representative must be present during the move at all times. It is customer’s responsibility to do a final walk-through inspection of the premises to ensure we have taken and delivered everything. Our time runs continuously until all tools and equipment are back in the truck and payment is completed.

  7. Move Preparation: We require that all items be boxed and wrapped prior to moving to prevent any damage to your goods, damage to your home, and so that it can be safely handled by your moving crew. We cannot take any loose breakable items such as lamps, artwork, pots, or any other non furniture items determined loose and breakable by your moving crew. All mattress or fabric items must be plastic wrapped for safe transport.

    3. You may use plastic totes and plastic storage bins but we are not responsible for cracking or breaking and they are not recommended. Plastic bins do not fit flush against each other and a large gap is left between them, making them more vulnerable to sliding, breaking, cracking or caving in. We recommend heavy duty moving boxes. Moving boxes stack edge-to-edge, which allows them to hold their shape when other boxes are stacked on top. 

  8. Wrapping Materials. We provide complimentary moving blankets and tape for all moving jobs. However, we do not provide plastic wrap or mattress pads. It is up to you to decide if you want to use our plastic wrap and mattress pads or to purchase your own. Learn about prices on our “Prices and Supplies” page.

Additional Policies

  1. Damages and claims. Any damage claims must be submitted in writing to our claims department. Applicable notes about these damages must be made in writing on the bill of lading on the day of your move before movers leave your premises. Our company procedures do assume a full inspection of furniture by both our movers and customers, however the final inspection is the responsibility of the customer. All of our customers sign a bill of lading upon completion of a move. It reads “The above services were rendered and all goods delivered in good order, except as noted”. For any insurance company this document is critical in noting charges the same day, to ensure the damage occurred that day and that coverage could be provided. Unless payment is made in full as is due we are not required to answer or process a claim. Do not assume you may deduct the money from the final bill to compensate yourself in the event of damage. This is ILLEGAL.

  2. Particle Board Furniture: When particle board furniture is moved assembled, it has a high probability to break due to the nature of how the furniture is assembled and due to the method by which the particle board material is manufactured. As a result, we advise customers they have three (3) options when they need to move particle board furniture...
    Option #1: Dismantle the article themselves and pack it into a box, and the mover will be responsible for any damage to the item (in accordance with the liability option the customer has selected).
    Option #2: Pay the movers to dismantle the article and pack it into a box, and the mover will be responsible for damage to the item (in accordance with the liability option the customer has selected).
    Option #3: Have the mover move the article assembled and the customer must sign a liability release which releases the mover from responsibility for loss or damage to the article.

  3. Moving of a refrigerator. We only move empty, defrosted, and drained freezers/refrigerators. Please empty the contents for safe moving. Wyvern will not take responsibility for the mechanical condition of the item, unless visible physical damage was caused in the process of moving.

  4. Moving of a grandfather clock. Wyvern will be responsible for removing the pendulum, chimes and weights. Team Elite will gladly take down the pendulum and weights using cloth in order not leave any marks, secure gongs, bases and chime rods. Weights will be labeled by Wyvern. Weights and pendulum will also accurately and individually pack. Clock itself will be blanket wrapped and crated around with double-walled cardboard. Upon the delivery everything will be unpacked and reinstalled. Please note: clock mechanism has to be stopped by you, the owner. We will not be able to do that. We will also not be able to set up the time, start the mechanism or perform any adjustments to the mechanism upon the delivery.

  5. Moving of an aquarium. Any aquarium to be moved has to completely empty and dry. Wyvern will not disassemble, reassemble or install any aquarium. We do not transport the water of an aquarium. Please consult with a proper professional prior to the move.

Moving Insurance

Wyvern Moving has been committed to serving you, the customer. In order to avoid misunderstandings, we would like you to read the following information.

  1. All charges must be paid in full before any claim filing can be placed by customer.

  2. All payments for services rendered must be in the form of cash, bank certified check, postal money order or credit card. There is a 3% convenience fee with use of a credit or debit card. We cannot accept American Express cards.

  3. Upon completion of the job, it is the customer’s responsibility to inspect the truck to make sure nothing has been left behind.

CUSTOMER’S DECLARATION OF VALUE

Option A – Limited Liability

As a licensed common carrier, we are required to provide limited liability coverage at no charge to the customer. Under this option maximum liability is limited to $.60 per pound per article, in the event of damage or loss.

Option B – Depreciated Value Protection with Deduction

With Depreciated Value Protection a claim settlement will be either the cost to repair or a cash payment of the depreciated value of an article .

Wyvern Moving’ s claim department uses a depreciation chart to determine any cash payment settlement under this coverage. The charge for this option is at a rate of $10 per $1000 declared value. For example, to purchase coverage for $10,000 declared shipment value, the charge will $100. This protection carries a $250 deductible value, with a min. coverage sold of $75.00.

The maximum amount that can be covered with this plan is $100,000 and the minimum amount of coverage needed for option B is determined by multiplying the size of the shipment by $30 per cubic foot. Example: if the goods to be moved total 850 cubic ft., at the rate of $30 per cubic ft. the minimum amount to be covered is $25,500. However, it is the customer’s responsibility to choose the proper amount of coverage. If the full declared value is not taken, a penalty will be incurred based on the ratio between the actual value and the declared shipment. For example: if $20,000 worth of goods were moved, yet only $10,000 worth of coverage was purchased, the payment for any damage would be adjusted downward by one-half ($10,000-$20,000)

Important Note: Valuation coverage in not insurance. Valuation is a tariff level of the carriers liability in the event of the loss or damage of your goods while under due course of transit by Wyvern Moving. This type of coverage is unique to carriers alone and therefore it is important for the customer to understand what valuation does and does not cover. Option B applies only to declared lump sum of under $25,000.00.

Option C – Full Replacement Coverage

A full replacement coverage of is based on  a minimum declared value of $7.00 per pound and $28.00 per cubic foot.  The charge for this option will be $20.00 per  $1,000.00 of valuation. This option carries a $500.00 deductible value  with a minimum coverage charge of $100.00. Option C applies only to a full replacement valuation under $25,000.00. In the event of a full replacement valuation higher than $25,000.00 customer is obligated to obtain coverage through a third party insurance provider (Please see Option D).

Option D – Third Party Insurance   

Coverage through a third party insurance company. Has to be done directly by the shipper, prior to the move. Goods are being release to Wyvern Moving at a valuation of $0.60 per each pound per article.

Coverage option A, B and C do not apply to:

  1. Any article of extraordinary nature or value, unless a special agreement has been stipulated to do so. Including but not limited to jewelry, furs, stocks, bonds, cash, antiques and art collections.

  2. Loss or damage resulting from wear and tear, moths or vermin, dampness of atmosphere or extremes of temperature.

  3. Acts or omissions of the shipper, such as neglecting to prepare for time of shipment.

  4. Internal electronic or mechanical items, whether packed or unpacked by Wyvern Moving or the shipper.

  5. Loss or damage consisting of breakage to fragile items, such as china, glassware, etc., unless packed and unpacked by Wyvern Moving or unless caused directly by fire, theft, collision or overturn of transport vehicle.

  6. Marbles – Due to the fragility of such items in most cases for reasons beyond our control, Wyvern Moving will not take responsibility in terms of any type of coverage.

  7. Press-Wood (Particle Board) items. Due to the fragility of such items, they must be properly disassembled. Otherwise, Wyvern Moving will not take responsibility in terms of any type of coverage.
