Whether you’re moving to a new home in the same city or to a different state, the moving process can always be somewhat of a risk for most homeowners. After all, it’s possible for your items to be damaged in transit, and, if they’re damaged, replacing or repairing them may cost a significant amount. This is where transit coverage comes into play.
Here are the four kinds of transit coverage that you can get from your movers in order to protect yourself during a move.
Car Insurance Verification If you need to have your vehicle shipped, you can obtain car insurance from your movers. Ask them for a verification as well as the law requires them to have one. By obtaining a car insurance for your vehicle, you can rest assured that your vehicle will be protected during the moving process.
Special Perils – The special perils coverage covers the breakage of every single one of your items apart from fragile objects.
Floater – Contrasting the special perils coverage, obtaining a floater coverage from your local movers ensures that all your high-value items, such as fine china, jewelry, collectibles or fine art, are covered if they sustain any form of damage during the move.
Trip Transit Insurance – On the other hand, trip transit insurance coverage covers your personal property from various perils, such as theft, disappearance or fire, while in transit or storage. It can be written for the full value of your property, but keep in mind that this doesn’t cover breakage or flooding if you place your items at a storage facility.
