You may want to consider moving insurance to protect your valuables during the move. Even if you have been careful with packing and shipping, and hired professionals that will handle your items with care, accidents can still happen. The whole idea behind any kind of insurance is to help pay for damage caused from an accident. The amount you will pay for insurance will depend on how valuable your items are that you are going to be moving.
- Moving companies technically cannot provide insurance, but can offer full reimbursement for damaged items.
- You should carefully check with your specific moving company regarding issues with property damaged during moving.
- If you pack your items yourself, you may not be able to claim reimbursement if they are damaged.
“Just like you can get into a fender bender no matter how good a driver you are, moving accidents can happen to even the most careful people.”
