Matson's Liability for Your Shipment
We will make every effort to safeguard your household goods from damage. However, because
unforeseen circumstances sometimes occur, we offer limited protection while your goods are
in our possession. If Matson is responsible for damage to your goods, our liability is limited
to the amount of damage actually sustained to your goods, not to exceed the market value of
your goods and, in no event, more than $1,000 per package (i.e., van pack) or, if the number
of packages is not disclosed to Matson, $1,000 per customary freight unit (i.e., container).
This liability limit can be increased up to the full value of your goods by declaring the value
on your Dock Receipt and paying the appropriate additional freight rate. We do not provide any
form of insurance. You should verify your personal marine insurance coverage for transportation
damage and any other related insurance protection with your insurance carrier.
