Valuation

CV Fine Art Services is dedicated to providing the safest possible handling for your goods while in our care. For your peace of mind, we offer a valuation program to protect you in the unlikely event of loss or damage to your goods. Valuation protects you by ensuring your items can be repaired or replaced at our expense. For your convenience, we offer three types of valuation.

Basic valuation of $1.20 per pound per item is included in our rates. It is adequate for a variety of items and may meet your needs without additional expense. Artwork, antiques and fine furnishings may require additional coverage to ensure repair or replacement.

Limited valuation is 1.5% of the declared value of the shipment. Limited valuation applies when the client declares a value, and packs/unpacks his or her shipment. Limited valuation does not cover concealed damages, only for loss of shipment.

Full valuation is quoted after a job evaluation to cover the declared value of the shipment. Full Valuation applies when CV FAS provides condition reports upon pick up, packs, unpacks and provides condition reports upon delivery.

Valuation covers loss or damage to your goods caused by CV Fine Art Services/Classic Design Services, Inc. while in our care and control. Some goods and conditions are excluded from valuation coverage, such as: unknown or concealed goods (sealed containers), inherent vice (previous damage), and changes in atmospheric moisture (cracks in wood furniture). Valuation does not cover loss by third parties, acts of nature, terrorism, war and other causes outside the control of CV Fine Art Services/Classic Design Services, Inc.

As part of our dedication to customer satisfaction, we make every effort to ensure that client losses and inconvenience are minimized. However, valuation does not obligate CV Fine Art Services/Classic Design Services, Inc. to pay for replacement of an item when damage is restorable. We reserve the right to repair, replace or offer settlement at our discretion. Valuation covers only the decorative value of your goods. Valuation does not cover loss of value, loss of profit or inconvenience.

Additional information about valuation is provided in our terms of service, located on the back of your bill of lading or work order. Additional copies are available upon request. If you have any questions about valuation please contact your customer service representative. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you; all of us look forward to helping you with your transportation needs.
