Do I need to insure my belongings before organising a removalist?
At Gold Coast Removals, we know how important it is to feel secure when moving your belongings. Whether this is for direct delivery to a new address or to a storage depot, you need to know that no harm will come to your furniture and other belongings.
We are the most experienced and safest storage container on the Gold Coast, and we have a service that is second to none in covering you and your property.
Should I Take Out Cover?
Some removals companies require their customers to insure their goods before any move. This is often because they cannot guarantee there will be no damage in the packing, loading, transporting, unloading and or storage of your possessions. This represents quite a high degree of risk, which not all movers are prepared to cover.
Home insurance companies offer cover for customers on the move, but they charge an extra premium for “outside the home” or “personal possessions” protection.
This insurance will usually cover accidental damage or loss in transit. It is always wise to check the small print for the details of what exactly you are insured for.
Then there is the question of the excess you will need to pay if and when you make a claim against the removals firm.
At Gold Coast Removals, we believe in a complete service that insures and protects your possessions all the way through the moving and or storage process, from pre-pack to final, in place delivery.
We believe that quality counts. Our services are second to none in every way. We use the best packing materials, safest methods of storing and transport and secure, clean storage. We also provide the best peace of mind on offer by guaranteeing everything we do.
We are so confident in the service we provide that we take the question of insurance out of the equation. Our services insure themselves, so you do not need to take out extra protection for your belongings before we move them.
In the unlikely event we cause any damage or loss at any point in moving or storing your furniture and valuables, we will replace them or pay for repairs. Our storage container on the Gold Coast is constructed and maintained to the highest possible standards to ensure the safety of your belongings.
Some customers may worry about the potential for damage during long-term storage and long distance moving because the extra time, distance or methods of transport increases the likelihood of their goods being damaged. Our processes and materials enable us to help reduce the risk of damage to your valuables no matter what the timescales or distances involved.
