Unless you’re not bothered whether your possessions are damaged, it’s essential to arrange comprehensive insurance specifically for the move. Many removal companies can arrange this for you; otherwise, they can advise you on what to look for.
All accidental loss or damage will be covered, from the moment your possessions leave your old home to the moment they’re delivered to your new home, although there may be a clause requiring any fragile items to be packed professionally. This can normally be done by your removal company. And, because it’s a short-term policy, there’s usually no excess to pay.
