Moving Tip of The Week – Know Your Moving Insurance Options

Everybody who moves and uses a moving company is worried about the safety of their belongings. Even if you hire a mover that has exceptionally positive reviews, you still get nervous. They could be the best movers around, but that doesn’t always mean that accidents will never happen. This is where moving insurance comes into play. There are 3 main types of moving insurance:

  1. Released Value: Your movers will pay you 60 cents for every pound of damaged/lost goods.
  2. Full Value: Your movers will pay you the full value for damaged/lost goods.
  3. Third-Party: You can get insurance from a specialized moving insurance company that offers a range of coverage options (your homeowner’s insurance might offer coverage as well).
