Boulder All Star Movers Terms and Conditions of Service

This document contains important information about your relationship with Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. Please read it and familiarize yourself with its terms.

By purchasing services through Boulder All Star Movers, LLC you agree to the following:

Boulder All Star Movers, LLC is a moving & transportation services company that specializes in residential and commercial relocation. 

 

 Services Rendered: Our services are offered in hourly increments. Any time over 20 minutes into the hour that our movers work on your job shall constitute a full hour of service for billing purposes, based on your quoted hourly rate. Charges for the hourly rate will begin as soon as the movers leave our dispatch center, and end as soon as they return to the dispatch center. Your total bill will reflect the total duration of time from once we leave our facility to once we return. If you require our movers to assist you for any amount of time over your initial booking, we will require a payment via credit card or check and you agree to pay for all services rendered. We have a two-hour minimum purchase and only refund hours unused over the 2-hour minimum. Keep in mind the services rendered will be added to the hours used for drive time. Your appointment form & Bill of lading is the document you will fill out on our website to determine what items will be transferred during your relocation. Any item that you wish to be moved, must be on your appointment form & Bill of lading. Any items or boxes not mentioned on the Appointment form & Bill of lading will not be allowed on the truck. Make sure your appointment form & Bill of lading is 100% accurate before purchasing any service through Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. All online service requests are NON-BINDING estimates subject to change based on actual furniture load, weight, distance traveling, long carry or any item or circumstance not discussed or labeled on your bill of lading. 

If this contract relates to a service estimate or quote that is not done through our online system, the quote will be stated as BINDING or NON-BINDING depending on the type of estimate. BINDING estimates will include every possible charge that you will see for the total of the contract. NON-BINDING estimates will give you a range of pricing depending on different variables affecting the move like, stairs, distance traveling, long carry, items not mentioned or listed on the Bill of Lading or appointment form or anything not discussed prior to the move dictated at Boulder All Star Movers, LLC sole discretion. NON-BINDING estimates are always subject to change including but not limited to additional charges, fees, taxes, permit charges or any monetary value that might be incurred while completing your requested service. If you sign a BINDING estimate and request additional services or charges you will be instructed to sign an Amended Contract for Additional Services form indicating that you are aware of the additional and new charges beyond your original estimate and agree to pay for all additional charges and fees. 

When we arrive on the day of your move, we will begin by doing a walkthrough of your location and getting an idea on the current location and status of each of your items that will be moved that day. During this time, we will fill out an “Descriptive inventory Goods Report”. This report simply acknowledges the current state of your goods, furniture, residence & property and allows us to determine if we think it is safe to move, or if the item has been compromised prior to our arrival, which in returns means we cannot guarantee the item is transported safely, securely, or in a way that prevents any further damage to the item. When we mark an item down on this sheet, this is acknowledging the current state of the item, and we will have you sign off on the current damages, or the item as a whole, to waive from insurance coverage and liability. By signing this document, you agree and commit to waiving these specific items from insurance and liability coverage. At no time, will Boulder All Star Movers, LLC be held liable for any damages or lost articles that were written and signed by our customers on the Inventory goods Goods Report and was not damaged or destroyed by Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. The final form we will have you sign once the move is complete is our service contract completion form. This form is to finalize the contract between the client (you) and Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. This form indicates that all of your items have made it safely to your new location, the time duration and billing of the move is correct, and that you have no damages, claims or missing items. This form will close out the relationship between you and Boulder All Star Movers, LLC and no damages, insurance claims, or payment disputes will be valid once this form is signed. Make sure to inspect all house hold goods and items as well as your home before signing the form. Once this form is signed and completed, the relationship between you and Boulder All Star Movers, LLC will end.  Boulder All Star Movers, LLC is not liable for any and all damages, misplaced items, structural or physical damages once this form is signed. 

 

 

Our other onsite form is what we call a Full Liability waiver. This is meant for customers who would like the process to be expedited as much as possible, without using Boulder All Star Movers, LLC's proven protection methods to ensure the safety of your goods during transit. This is for customers who do not want any blanket wrap protection, door frame protection, or any type of precautionary methods to ensure the safety and security of your goods during transport. This document will be signed prior to the beginning of the move and will eliminate all liability for your goods during transit, property, structural or physical. This method is not recommended since we cannot guarantee your items make it safely to your next location, without any of our precautionary methods and procedures. Any claims arising after the signature of this form will not be accepted. This form waves all liability and damage that may be caused during the service contract. 

 

You must make payment directly to Boulder All Star Movers for all services, and any monies that you give to our movers will not satisfy any payment requirements. You agree to pay for all hours of service rendered unless disputed within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment. We require payment for all services within 72 hours of the services being rendered. Any payments that remain outstanding more than 72 hours after your appointment will result in a referral to a collection agency to recover outstanding due balances. Payment via credit card or debit card will require a 4% transaction fee added to the total. 

In general, our services are fully refundable, minus our 4% transaction fee, but only up to 48 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment. We will do our best to accommodate changing customer needs, but any changes within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment are not guaranteed nor refundable. Similarly, any move that is scheduled within 48 hours of the scheduled job time will be nonrefundable. If you need to reschedule your move date or time, you will have a limit of two reschedules, cementing your final reschedule as our final reservation. If your final reservation still does not work after rescheduling twice, your order will be non-refundable and final.

In the event of inclement weather, Boulder All Star Movers, LLC retains the right to cancel or reschedule any moving services when weather or other conditions would endanger the health and safety of our movers, as determined in the sole discretion of Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. In the event of a cancellation, all funds paid to Boulder All Star Movers for the cancelled services will be refunded.

Any time there is adverse weather, especially snow or ice, the areas to be used in the relocation MUST BE PREPARED by the customer to allow us to safely execute the relocation. Any driveway that is covered in snow or ice or anything that prevents our trucks from safely accessing the loading/unloading area will delay the process, and will result in increased hourly charges. You must plow, shovel or clear your loading areas, especially driveways, so our trucks can safely access the area. If the area is not prepped or safely accessible as dictated in the sole discretion of Boulder All Star Movers, we will spend time, on the clock to shovel, apply ice melt, or may have to wait until the driveway or loading areas are clear. Also, Boulder All Star Movers, LLC will retain no liability or responsibility to any damage caused to driveways or loading areas while cleaning or removing any debris or snow. You will be billed for all time our movers spend prepping the area to make it safe to conduct the relocation.  If you do not wish to pay us to make the area safe, you will have the option of cancelling the job, in which case you will be refunded half of your quoted relocation fees. If extra material is needed to complete or safely secure the loading or unloading areas, you will be charged an additional hour for prep time.

INSURANCE & LIABILITY

 

 

Standard transportation law in Colorado requires that transportation companies give you two options when transporting your goods. First, is the no cost .60/lbs. option which will cover .60 cents for every pound of the specific item that was damaged.

 

The next option is to offer full value coverage or repair. This is where our Full Value packages are offered and serve as a great way to ensure a specific amount of coverage is placed on your goods during transit. This way, if anything does get damaged during transit, you are covered up to the amount of the coverage you have purchased. When purchasing our Coverage options, make sure to be very specific as to the total value you would like to declare. You will be fully covered up to the maximum amount under the coverage package you have purchased. Boxes, totes, bags or crates not packed by Boulder All Star Movers, LLC are automatically covered by .60 cents per pound and will not be covered in any way by full value coverage or protection. 

 

 

 

 

$50 for up to $500 worth of full value coverage.

 

$75 for up to $750 worth of full value coverage.

 

$100 for up $1,000 worth of full value coverage.

 

$250 for up to $2,500.00 worth of full value coverage.

 

$500 for up to $5,000.00 worth of full value coverage.

 

$1,000 for up to $10,000.00 worth of full value coverage.

 

 

Full Value Protection is a protection policy that will 1). Repair the article to the extent of condition it was in before we arrived and stated on your inventory form. 2). Replace the article with an article of like, kind and quality, or pay for the cost of a similar replacement minus depreciation. This type of coverage is only for the items or articles damaged by Boulder All Star Movers, and not assessed by the weight of your total shipment. This coverage will only apply to the specific article damaged or destroyed by Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. Items of Extraordinary Value are strictly prohibited from Full value coverage and will not be covered in anyway. (Extraordinary Value Items: Items of $100/Per pound or more in, actual, market or theoretical value.). (Jewelry, currencies, notes, antiques, custom made equipment or fixtures are strongly discouraged from being transported and will not be covered under any insurance claims. ) 

By deciding to purchase no full value coverage on your move, you are electing to choose the .60 cents per pound per piece of damaged goods coverage. This is the default coverage mandated by Colorado Law. If you check any of these options on your appointment form and bill of lading and chose to not purchase the additional coverage separately as stated on the appointment form and bill of lading you will be defaulted to our standard no cost coverage of .60 cents per pound. Make sure that if you would like to purchase any of our full value protection plans you go to our full value protection page and purchase the correct coverage you would like to add to your order. Any failure to follow these instructions will result in a default to standard no cost .60 cents per pound coverage and we will except no liability or damage claims on your behalf exceeding .60 cents per pound of damaged goods. 

 

 

This coverage is only for the house hold goods or items that are being transported by Boulder All Star Movers, LLC. To file an insurance claim on a specific item, you will need to have either the receipt of purchase, or proof of ownership and the value of the item when it was purchased. Make sure that any item you plan to have insured under these packages has proof of purchase before purchasing our coverage. In no way, will this coverage cover anything that does not have a receipt, proof of purchase or a monetary value provided by the company who sold you the product with proof of purchase by you.

Once you have signed our Service contract completion form, no insurance claims will be accepted.
