How to Prepare for Shipping Electronics

Atlas follows a process in Electronics Shipping for your protection.

You play an important part in our process to ensure that after shipping electronics your things arrive safely. We will ask you to complete and sign the Customer's Declaration of Value, a part of the Bill of Lading (see pages 25 and 26 of this booklet: Important Information for when you move). The first page of this two-part form spells out your responsibilities. You will notice Atlas may not be liable in the event certain items are lost or damaged. Please be familiar with these items and arrange to transport them yourself.

The second page of the form provides an inventory of your valuables. Atlas relies on you to complete this form. We use it to determine your shipment value and which items need special care. As well as electronics, list all high-value items you want Atlas to move, including:

  • CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, Gaming Systems
  • antiques, collectibles, and art
  • precious stones and metals

Your Atlas Professional Van Operator must see each high-value item before loading it onto the truck. Please make sure carton labels and written instructions are clear and visible. It's our job to see that every item moves safely. Should contents of a carton you pack become damaged during transit, the liability may be yours. If we ask you to repack a carton, it's because we're looking out for your best interest.
