WHAT YOU CAN DO BEFORE MOVING

You play an important part in our moving process to ensure your things arrive safely. We will ask you to complete and sign the Customer Responsibilities Guide / High Value Inventory from our Important Move Information.

The first page of this two-part form spells out your responsibilities. You will notice Atlas may not be liable in the event certain items are lost or damaged. Please be familiar with these items and arrange to transport them yourself.

The second page of the form provides an inventory of your valuables. JW Cole and Sons relies on you to complete this form. We use it to determine your shipment value and which items need special care. List all high-value items you want JW Cole and Sons to move, including:

The Atlas Professional Van Operator must see each high-value item before loading it onto the truck to ensure proper packing.

Please make sure carton labels and written instructions are clear and visible. It’s our job to see that every item moves safely. Should contents of a box you pack become damaged during transit, the liability may be yours. If we ask you to repack a box, it’s because we’re looking out for your best interest.
