Your Responsibilities

  • It is required that the inventory procedure be accomplished by both the driver and the customer, or his/ her representative. The customer, or his/her representative, must sign off as each individual inventory sheet is completed.
  • Magnum Moving & Storage will not accept perishable articles, including houseplants. The customer should not include jewelry (other than costume); coins, currency or any other negotiable paper (stock certificates, bonds, notes); important papers (deeds, titles, bank books, tax and similar documents); collections (stamps, baseball cards); or any other item of high value in the customer’s shipment due to the value of these items. If a customer chooses to ship any of these items, contrary to this advice, the customer understands that the customer is responsible for notifying Magnum of the items to be shipped in order that Magnum may take the necessary precautions for them. In the unlikely event of a loss, the customer further understands that the customer will be responsible for establishing that these items were in the customer’s shipment in order to be able to recover for them.
  • The day before the packers arrive the customer should check all dresser drawers to be sure nothing valuable or breakable is left in them. Items left in drawers will be transported as is.
