Our teams of movers are highly trained in handling your belongings with care. Although rare, sometimes unforeseen events could happen, resulting in damage or loss during a move. For that reason, it’s important you understand and familiarize yourself with liability and insurance options prior to relocation. Below are the three common long-distance moving coverage choices to think about prior to hiring movers:
New York Moving Companies Released-Value Protection
Under federal regulation and at no additional cost to you, we offer this type of coverage as part of long-distance moves. For items damaged or lost during a move, you will receive $.60 per pound per article. Please be aware that this kind of coverage does not provide you with substantial protection.
Third Party Insurance
If the items you plan to move include high-value objects, such as antiques, expensive furnishings, or art, you may want to consider purchasing a separate insurance policy to provide you with more substantial coverage. We recommend you first check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if your belongings will be covered in transit. If you decide to purchase insurance from a different carrier, you may wish to do your own research or check out our preferred vendor, movinginsurance.com.
