Contractor’s liability for loss or damage to Customer’s property (real or personal) due to Contractor’s negligent acts, errors or omissions shall be limited to the lesser of Customer’s actual damages or One Million Dollars ($1,000,000).

the requested insurance is at least equal to the Declared Value;
the request is made at least ten (10) days prior to commencement of performance of the work set forth herein;

Contractor reserves the right to move, at Contractor’s own expense any goods in storage from the Warehouse in which they may be stored to any other of Contractor’s Warehouses; but if Customer or holder takes delivery of such goods in lieu of transfer, no storage charge shall be made for the current storage month. Contractor may, without notice, move goods within the Warehouse in which they are stored. Except as otherwise provided in the receipt for goods accepted into storage, Contractor may, upon written notice to Customer and to any other person known by Contractor to claim an interest in the goods, require the removal of any goods thirty (30) days from the date the notice is received.

This charge will apply also to each account in the event Customer has several accounts, each requiring separate records and billing.
Liability. Contractor assumes no liability for any loss or injury to the goods stored that could not have been avoided by the exercise of reasonable care required by law or a reasonably careful man. Goods are stored at Customer’s risk of loss for damage by acts of God, seizure or other acts of civil or military authority, insurrection, riot, strike, or enemies of the government, for loss or damage resulting from inadequate packaging or wear and tear, or from any cause not originating in the Warehouse or from any cause beyond Contractor’s control.
