Should I buy mover's insurance?

Mover’s insurance is offered by professional moving companies to cover you for any lost or damaged belongings during the packing and delivery stages of your move. It’s not a requirement, however you may want to think over the following considerations when deciding whether or not to pay for it:

  • Do you have any highly valuable or irreplaceable belongings?
  • Do you own antique furniture?
  • How much does the insurance cost and how much will you be covered for?
  • Are there any exclusions to the moving company’s liability? What are they?

If you're moving a great distance, it’s generally recommended that you buy mover’s insurance, but the decision should be based primarily upon the value of your belongings. For more information on mover’s insurance, inquire with a moving company near you.
