Moving Special Items

Moving Services strongly recommends that departments purchase insurance through the Risk Management Office whenever moving items of special value, costly equipment, or if replacing items damaged in a move would ‘break your budget’. Moving Services is not responsible for damages that occur during a move. The moving vendor is not required to replace, repair, or insure items moved, and will pay damage claims based on weight, not value. Contact Risk Management Office for more information about purchasing insurance for special items by calling 206.221.2984 or by email at
