Whether you’re moving locally or across state lines, moving is always a lot of work and there will always be some risk involved. That’s why it’s important to ensure that you have the right insurance to protect your belongings during the move.
In this post, trusted moving company Tiger Moving & Storage discusses the importance of transit insurance. We also share tips on how you can make sure you have the right coverage.
Importance of Transit Insurance
Transit insurance covers your household items during a move. More specifically, it protects you from unexpected situations such as theft and car-jacking, road accidents (collisions, derailments, etc.), and natural disasters (flood, storms, fire, etc.).
If your property suffered from any damage that was not caused by such circumstances, you will likely have to cover the cost on your own. So, in addition to getting transit insurance for your relocation, make sure to follow safety and packing guidelines from expert movers. This way, you can have peace of mind that your belongings won’t be damaged while in transit.
Understanding Your Coverage
Make sure that you have a good understanding of your agreement with your moving company. Below are other types of coverage that you might want to discuss with professional movers:
- Special perils contents coverage – covers the breakage of all items except fragile ones
- Floater – covers high-value items such as jewelry, china, fine art, collectibles, etc.
- Storage insurance – covers your items while they are in temporary or permanent storage
