PikkolCare cover for Intra-city moves
We take every precaution to reduce the risks of loss and damage when handling your things
during packing, transporting, delivering, unpacking and storing. While we’re proud to have
one of the best records for damage free relocations in the industry, it is important to recognize
that there are still risks. That is why we offer this protection for items you have selected for
packing by us.
Under this plan you can avail damage cover of up to two times your move value. The damage
cover applies to appliances, and furniture that you have selected for packing by the Pikkol
team. In case you have availed PikkolCare for within-the- city movement, we will try to
repair/replace/refund up to a maximum of two times your move value less service tax.
If an appliance with value of Rs. 15,000/- gets damaged during the move, we will try to repair
it first. If it is not repairable by us we may choose to replace or refund the repair charges or
refund the entire amount after our evaluation. The maximum liability under this plan is for up
to two times the move value.
Should you note any issues upon delivery that fall under your PikkolCare, notify your move
coordinator immediately before the team leaves your premises so that the damages can be
ascertained. No claim can be entertained after the teams leave the premises after the delivery.
This plan is meant to cover major damages that customers may face during the move. Hence
request your understanding in not reporting minor damages that occur in transportation.
There are certain events, circumstances and occurrences which may cause loss or damage that
PikkolCare will not accept responsibility for. These denials are consistent with industry

packed or pre-packed personal belongings. Also excludes missing items from
owner-packed cartons or packages.

customer changes plans for delivery/pickup, due to which the goods may be
loaded or unloaded more times than planned/required from the truck.
