Moving Insurance


Marathon Moving is fully licensed and insured. Anyone that applies for employment with Marathon Moving goes through a full background check and pre employment drug screen, as well as random screenings throughout the year.  We are very picky about who we allow into our customers’ homes.

Although we are very careful, accidents do happen. Understanding your rights as a shipper in North Carolina will help you choose the protection that best suits your needs. Movers are not insurance agents and therefore cannot sell insurance. What we do offer is value protection:

  •  Basic Value Protection – This comes free with the move and values your furniture at 60 cents per pound if something is damaged. It is a very low level of coverage.


  •  Full Value Protection – With FVP the customer declares the value of their load at the beginning of the move, in case of a total loss, and is covered for full replacement value of single articles that are damaged.

“I worked solely with Tyler throughout my entire process. He came out to give me an estimate within 15 minutes of calling and had an estimate emailed to me within an hour after our meeting. He was incredibly professional during any of our brief phone calls, emails or texts. His quote was very accurate for all services provided and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a local moving service.”
