What is the time limit to file a claim?
For interstate / International / Local California moves it is up to 9 months from the date of the delivery.
For local and intrastate moves in all other states other than California, it depends on each state regulation. In most states it is between 15-90 days from the date of the delivery. Check with your carrier directly or on the back of your Bill of Lading, for your specific claim filing requirements. Once you file online we will receive your information in our system and will be verifying your information with your carrier to properly assign you a Claim #. We will then email you a claim form to the email you have registered with. All claim forms, claim support documents and copies of shipping documents, can be emailed to MovingClaims.net or mailed to our mailing address located on our claim form or at our contact us page.
How long does the process take?
For Local Moves – Since there are no specific time limitations regulated by the different states, MovingClaims.net has decided to treat local / Intrastate moves as Interstate move (120 days) so that claims are adjusted in a timely manner. Local / Intrastate moves in the state of California are reviewed within 30 days as required by the California PUC.
For Interstate Moves – your carrier has 120 days to provide a settlement offer for your claim, from the date your complete claim along with all required documents is received in their office. If claims can’t be settled or denied within that time, an extension notice must be sent to the customer within every consecutive 60 days period. MovingClaims.net as the assigned third party claims company must follow the same requirements of your carrier’s. However, as part of our customer service we strive to offer a speedy resolution.
How Can I Check The Progress / Status of My Claim ?
To inquire about the status of your case, kindly contact us via email at Support@MovingClaims.net. All communication regarding your claim will be conducted through email or mail. In certain circumstances, we may reach out to you by phone (if necessary) to gather additional information or seek clarifications regarding your claim.
Please take note that we highly recommend adding our email address, Support@MovingClaims.net, to your contact list. This will ensure that our emails are delivered directly to your inbox and not directed to your spam folder, guaranteeing prompt and efficient communication.
How long until I get my check?
In the majority of cases, settlement checks are typically mailed out by the carrier within one to two weeks after they receive the signed release from us. However, it's important to note that each carrier may have their own specific timeline for issuing checks. Some carriers may send out settlement checks within 30 days of receiving the signed release, while we request that carriers issue checks no later than 45 days from receipt of the signed release. It's essential to understand that this time frame is an internal requirement and not a legal obligation.
If you need any assistance regarding inquiries about your settlement check, please feel free to contact us. Alternatively, you may also reach out to your carrier directly for more specific information regarding the status of your settlement check.
