Instructions: How to Provide Coverage for Your Move

You must determine the full replacement value of your goods at the destination. Provide this information in the Valued Inventory Form, either online or a printed form.

When items are listed together, all will be considered to be of equal value. If additional listings or clarifications are required, please use the blank spaces provided on the form.

Remember: you should be indicating replacement values in your destination country.

The tables below show examples of how to enter the information.

G-LIVING ROOM   P – CLOTHING
ARTICLE NO.ITEM VALUE ARTICLE NO.ITEM VALUE
Sofa(s) 1 $1,800 Coat(s) 2 $ 400
Chair(s) 2 $1,350 Suit(s) 4 $1,200
Lamp(s) 3 $ 400 Dresses 6 $ 600

In order to select coverage for Pairs and Sets and/or Mechanical and Electrical Derangement you must duplicate the items and coverage value already listed as shown below:

MECHANICAL/ELECTRONIC DERANGEMENT*   PAIRS AND SETS*
ARTICLE NO.ITEM VALUE ARTICLE NO.ITEM VALUE

Example Scenarios

It’s important to select the right kind of coverage, as these examples show.

  1. Pairs and Sets
    A customer obtains coverage for a dining room table and six chairs for $1,400.00. If Pairs and Sets coverage was not selected and one chair is damaged, the customer will only be compensated for $200.00 even if the chair cannot be replaced. However, if the Pairs and Sets coverage is used, the customer will be compensated for the entire cost of the set if one portion of the set is damaged beyond repair.

  2. Electrical/Mechanical Derangement
    A customer obtains coverage for a television for $500.00. If Electrical/Mechanical Derangement coverage is not used and the TV arrives at the destination with no evident external damage but does not work, the customer will not be compensated for this damage. If Electrical/Mechanical Derangement coverage is purchased, the customer will be compensated for the internal damage to the TV.

Get Full Value Out of the Plan

All items must be covered. Don't deliberately under-value your possessions. If you do not select enough coverage for your consignment, the underwriter will apply a co-coverage penalty to any claims. For instance, if you obtain coverage for your total consignment for half of its true replacement value, each and every part of a claim could be reduced by 50%, regardless of its declared value.

What happens in the event of a claim?

You can file a claim from anywhere in the world. Claims may also be filed online via the northAmerican International web site. All claims covered by northAmerican International N.A, Inc. will be settled promptly and efficiently, following any necessary claim inspection survey. All claims will be processed through our central claim department. This is another way in which northAmerican International provides you with peace of mind.

What happens if I don't obtain coverage for my move?

We cannot overemphasize the importance of obtaining coverage for your international shipment. If you don't, and if something is lost or damaged, northAmerican International assumes no liability.
