How do I proceed with Reindeer Station All Risk Protection Policy?
Step 1: Complete the inventory form.
Value your goods at destination using the individual method of valuation. You will need to list and value all the goods in your shipment, under the appropriate category. Groupings can be used, but note that it is assumed that each item in a group has the average value of all the items in the group. The average value will be used to estimate the replacement cost. Should you feel the form is too restrictive, or if you prefer to compile your own valued list, please do so.
Step 2: When you have completed the step 1, date and sign the following:
- Your inventory or your own detailed and valued list
- The general terms and conditions for international removals.
- Please return the completed inventory form to our Moving Service Consultant.
Step 3: You will then be given by our Moving Consultant the notice and a copy of the removals insurance certificate.

The terms & conditions of “ITI ”s All risk Policy?
Household goods, personal effects and private passenger automobiles shipped under deck or by air are insured against “All Risks” of physical loss or damage from any external cause, subject to the American Institute Cargo Clauses. These clauses include Warehouse to Warehouse Transit Clauses, Marine Extension Clauses, Strikes, Riots and Civil Commotion, and “War Risk” insurance. Containerized shipments, whether shipped on deck or under deck are insured per “All Risks” conditions. Non‐containerized shipments on deck, subject to an “on Deck” bill of lading, are insured “Free of Particular Average” unless the vessel or craft be stranded, sunk, burnt, on fire, in collision or by the shipment being jettisoned or lost overboard. Whenever coverage provided by this policy would be in violation of any U.S. economic or trade sanctions, such coverage shall be null and void. This document is a confirmation of insurance placed with National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA, a subsidiary of Chartis Insurance under Marine Open Cargo Policy #051769983 and administered by Inter Trans Insurance Services, Inc., hereinafter referred to as I.T.I.
In the absence of a valued inventory, insurance must be purchased for a minimum of .00 per pound for Actual Cash Value or .00 per pound for Replacement Value coverage. Either type of coverage requires that high value items be specifically declared and valued and this total must be added to the per pound coverage. The settlement based on Actual Cash Value insurance will be the lesser of replacement costs, less a factor for depreciation, or the repair costs. The settlement based on Full Value Replacement insurance will be the lesser of repair costs, replacement value or as stated on the valued inventory. This company reserves the right to replace the damage or missing items with items of like kind and quality. If any item of a "set" is lost or damaged, payment is only made for proportionate value of the item damaged, not the entire set. All items in the shipment must be insured. Any policy that covers only a limited number of items in the shipment is subject to rejection or will be co‐insured.
This insurance includes coverage for 90 days storage at origin and/or destination within an approved warehouse. Mini storages, self lock areas, garages and other like facilities are not considered approved warehouses. Should the storage period exceed 90 days, the assured or the assureds agent must promptly notify I.T.I. of the delay and pay an additional premium.
Any shipped item(s) valued at over USD0.00 per item or set MUST BE SPECIFICALLY DECLARED AND VALUED prior to issuance of this document. Failure to comply will limit recovery to a maximum of USD0.00 per item or set.
The amount of insurance purchased must be not less than the Actual Cash Value or the Replacement Value of the property. If it is, the Underwriters will not pay for the full value of any item lost or damaged. The assured shall, to the extent of such deficit, bear his, her or their proportion of the loss. If a valued inventory has been submitted with the insurance document, the maximum liability shall not exceed the indicated amount. In no instance shall the Company's total liability exceed the insured value declared on this document.
Removals companies do not usually cover goods which fall under the following risk criteria:
Consequential losses (i.e. Resulting losses) arising from the delay in delivery may not be covered, and loss of value and depreciation due to damage and/or after repair may be excluded from cover. Ensure that you clarify this with your removals company.
Owner packed goods
Items packed by the owner without inspection by the mover before the carton box is sealed, are classified as “packed by Owner” (abbreviated as U20 or PBO). Movers usually exclude cover to items which are damaged or lost in owner-packed-cartons. If you wish to be covered, allow your removals company to pack or repack all items.
