May my mover ask me to sign a delivery receipt purporting to release it from liability?
At the time of delivery, your mover will expect you to sign a receipt for your shipment. Normally, you will sign each page of your mover’s copy of the inventory. Your mover’s delivery receipt or shipping document must not contain any language purporting to release or discharge it or its agents from liability.
Your mover may include a statement about your receipt of your property in apparent good condition, except as noted on the shipping documents.
Do not sign the delivery receipt if it contains any language purporting to release or discharge your mover or its agents from liability. Strike out such language before signing, or refuse delivery if the driver or mover refuses to provide a proper delivery receipt.
