Only accredited, professional removalists can offer you insurance for your furniture!
What removalists can and can’t provide in relation to insurance has changed over the last few years. Yes, every professional removalist should have their own Public Liability and Workers Compensation Insurance, however this does not extend to covering your personal furniture and effects.
Today, insurance in transit for removals is deemed separate from your removal charges. You can opt to purchase this insurance to protect your goods whilst they are being moved.
No matter how much care is taken by professional removalists, sometimes accidents occur.
