This means you are not responsible for any damage to the container itself, but it does not protect your belongings. This plan costs $9.99.
Its second plan, The Silver Plan, combines the Basic Plan with protection on your belongings within the container. Customers can have up to $75,000 of protection on their household goods and personal effects while their container is in 1-800-PACK-RAT’s possession or at their home.
