Investopedia explains 'Warehouser's Liability Form '


The industry does not have one standard form for warehouser's liability; each insurance company has its own form. Also, certain types of property are commonly not covered by a standard form, including money, precious metals and stones. Once the owner removes his or her goods from the warehouse and signs a warehouse storage receipt and release of liability, the warehouse owner or operator is no longer responsible for the goods.
