When you are moving to Perth or to any city in Australia, you would surely have to save something for the moving expenses. First, you have to spend something for the packing materials. Pretty sure that you are not only needing 1 or 2 boxes. Second, you have to pay the people or a company for their home removal services.
If you will notice, everything will be about spending. Now, as these people carry your household stuffs and transport it to your desired location, then you will not really know how your stuffs are doing. What I mean is that you cannot really monitor and check your things. So, you can never tell, if damages will occur because unavoidable situations may happen no matter how careful the driver or any personnel is.
Now, if you care about the value of your belongings, then you should learn how to protect and secure it. You can only do this by availing an insurance policy. Therefore, you have to make sure that you are going to choose a home and office removals company that offers such policy.
So, what type of insurance policy would you like to choose for the security and protection of your belongings? If you have not chosen yet, then we have here the basic and common types of insurance policies for you to choose from.
The Full-value protection Insurance
This is a type of insurance policy that offers a full value protection for your belongings. You are going to provide an estimate of those belongings. So, if damages occur, then the moving company will be paying the cost, basing on the given estimate. Therefore, do not expect for the company to pay you the exact cost of the item, when was first bought.
The Limited-value Insurance
This policy is based on the weight of your belongings. The company will usually have a rate per pound of your stuff like 70 cents. So, if the movers have accidentally broken your fragile vase, which weighs 20 pounds, then how much do you think will they pay you for this vase? Of course, they will pay you 14 USD only. You better think well about this kind of policy, especially if you are moving interstate.
The Third-party Insurance
Lastly, we have the third party. Here, instead of availing a full-value protection insurance policy from the company, you will get it from a different company or person. This may be more expensive, but it will surely be worth it.
