    4. Decide on Your Insured Value
    1. Valuation Calculation Option

      Select one of the two valuation methods and then provide further information in the section below.

      Important Notes:

      • Carefully consider the appropriate basis of valuation method (‘Option A’ or ‘Option B’), as this will be used in the event of a claim, and the amount nominated by you is the maximum value payable under the policy.
      • Carefully consider whether the minimum cubic metre values specified in ‘Option A’ are sufficient for your needs. If the nominated amounts are insufficient, please amend with the value that suits your needs and then calculate the declared replacement cost of your consignment.
      • When moving overseas, allow for any increase in the cost of goods at your country of destination, or any variances in the currency exchange rates.
      • In both valuation methods (‘Option A’ or ‘Option B’), you will also need to complete the Valuables Table nominating and valuing any antique, curio, plate, precious object, work of art, collection of items, fur, piece of precision equipment or similar, or professionally packed carton by Chess Moving where the value exceeds A$2,000. This amount will then be added to the total insured value; otherwise, if not specified, the item will be limited to a maximum value of A$2,000.
      • In ‘Option B’, items that are not declared are not insured.

    Option B Valuation: Specified Items Method
    1. THIS IS NOT CONFIRMATION OF INSURANCE - PLEASE ITEMISE AND VALUE YOUR GOODS USING THE LIST BELOW.

      If you have selected Replacement Cost Basis of Cover, ensure that you itemise the cost of new goods of similar type at the point of destination.

      If you have selected Market Value Basis of Settlement, itemise their replacement cost less a reasonable allowance for age, condition, wear and tear and depreciation.

      Important; Items not declared and valued are not insured.

      Estimated replacement values have been printed next to the list of items and these relate to the value of items of average size and quality in Australia and are simply provided to guide you only. Your insured values should reflect the true replacement cost or market value of your items. If you are uncertain of these values you should undertake your own investigation to establish the insured value.
