How to choose a moving company?

It's important to choose an international moving company with a good reputation. Doing so ensures that you know your goods will be safe when in transit. There are countless consumer reviews websites that allow you to develop an understanding of which companies can be entrusted to help you with your international move

Experience Matters

Choose an established moving company. Sure, choosing a new company may help you grab a deal that's cheaper than industry averages, but it may also leave you vulnerable to errors or a poor service.

Clear Pricing

Find a company that's open with their pricing structure. It's an unfortunate fact that many businesses hit you with hidden charges and fees.

Timely Moves

Get as much information about pick-up and delivery times as possible. This is vital for any move, let alone an overseas one.

Assigned Coordinator

Work with a company that will assign you a coordinator or manager. There's nothing worse than having to deal with a different employee every time you make contact and doing so may cause something to go wrong

Coverage Discussion

Discuss the company's liability coverage. If something were to go wrong with your household goods during the move, their liability coverage could make the world of difference and save you from being substantially out of pocket

Online Insights

Check out customer reviews online. Get a feel for the quality of customer service provided by a moving company, as this is often a good indicator of the overall quality of service you should expect from them.

Understanding Moving Insurance

Moving insurance is a type of coverage specifically designed to protect your possessions while in transit. It provides financial compensation in case your items are damaged by movers, lost, or stolen during the move. This insurance can be obtained through various sources, including your moving company, homeowners’ insurance, or standalone policies.

Types of Moving Insurance

There are two primary types of moving insurance:

  • Basic Coverage: Most moving companies offer a basic level of liability coverage as part of their service. This coverage is typically based on the weight of your items and is subject to specific limitations. While it’s better than no coverage at all, it may not fully protect valuable or fragile items.
  • Full-Value Protection: If you seek comprehensive protection, consider purchasing full-value protection from your moving company or a third-party insurer. This coverage ensures that in the event of loss or damage, the company will either repair the item, replace it, or provide cash reimbursement for its current market value. 

Finding the Right Moving Insurance

Now that you understand the types of moving insurance, it’s essential to choose the coverage that suits your needs best. Here, we will discuss the factors to consider when selecting the right insurance for your move.

Assessing Your Needs

The first step in finding the best moving insurance is to assess your specific requirements. Consider the value of your belongings and their susceptibility to damage. Valuables like antiques, electronics, or fragile items may necessitate additional insurance coverage beyond the basic options provided by movers.

Researching Insurance Options

Research various insurance options available from both your moving company and external insurers. Compare the coverage limits, deductibles, and terms of different policies to determine which insurance aligns best with your needs. The cost is also quite important of course, it is crucial to calculate if the insurance is actually worth it, depending on the probability of anything happening to your stuff.

Elate Moving provided excellent service from the second I called them through the completion of the move. They showed up on time, came prepared (with packing supplies, blankets and other tools), were nice and efficient. They also provided the best quote out of all the movers I called. Highly recommend their services for your next move.

The two gentlemen arrived in their 20 foot truck a half hour early today. That was excellent! These guys packed everything up neatly. They got it all on the truck in a more organized manner than I could’ve ever imagined. Absolutely phenomenal service

    The Importance of Moving Insurance

    As the day of your move approaches, understanding the importance of moving insurance becomes even more critical. In this section, we’ll highlight why having adequate coverage is a must during a move.

    Protecting Your Investment

    Your possessions are not just items; they represent an investment in your life. Moving insurance safeguards this investment and provides peace of mind, knowing that you won’t face a significant financial loss if something goes wrong during the move.

    Minimizing Stress

    Moving can be a stressful experience, and the last thing you need is the worry of potential damage or loss. Adequate insurance coverage reduces stress and allows you to focus on the exciting aspects of your move, rather than dwelling on the potential risks.

    In conclusion, investing in the right moving insurance is the best way to ensure your belongings are protected during the transition to your new home. By carefully assessing your needs and researching your options, you can find the perfect coverage for a smooth and stress-free move.
