Insurance Coverage for the New House and Moving House
Purchased a new home? Completed building your dream house? Or perhaps you’ve elected to rent and found a new rental property or had to move out of your old place.
There is truly nothing like that feeling of settling into your new home after you’ve finally arranged all your furniture and completely unpacked the last of the boxes. We all appreciate that moving to a new house isn’t easy, though it certainly can be a lot less stressful when you order our convenient packing crates or affordable moving packages from Box n’ Crate Hire, so you’ve earned that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment once you’ve reached the end of the moving process.
You can rest up knowing that your home and valuables are covered both in your new place of residence and for the transit as well by organising home and contents insurance for your new home as well as transit insurance for the move as part of your moving home process checklist. Don’t risk it – it’s not worth it! Ensuring adequate home, content and transit insurance is important for both renters and homeowners alike.
For the new location you are moving into – home and contents insurance can be one of those items commonly forgotten amidst the complex collection of endless tasks needing to be coordinated when moving home. Though it may appear to be yet another task on your endless to-do list, it’s worth sorting out sooner, rather than later. I think we’ve all heard of horror stories of things being broken or damaged in the first few moments of acquiring them or whilst moving into a new home.
Do your research and simply compare a wide range of home and content insurance policies online to make a decision with confidence. When you’re ready, you can get a quote in minutes and buy online. No matter what level of home and contents insurance cover you choose, protecting your most valuable assets is a smart thing to do.
One thing to check carefully for in your new insurance policy is that your contents insurance will actually cover damage to your belongings during the move as it will be safe to assume that many insurance companies do not include this in their contents insurance policies providing no cover for belongings against accidental breakages or carelessness while moving, regardless of whether you’re moving them yourself or using professionals.
There are some forms of insurance cover specifically available for transit though. These types of insurance policies are where the cover will often be referred to as “contents temporarily removed” or “contents in transit” or “portable contents cover”. Each of these insurance terms are slightly different in definition, and sometimes a policy might have one or more of them. It is sensible to check how your home insurance* covers you during your move and ask your insurer directly for clarification and peace of mind.
If you are doing a DIY move, don’t cut corners, reduce the risk to damaging your precious and delicate valuable items when moving to a new house by selecting appropriate packaging, padding and protection supplies for moving from Box n’ Crate Hire.
Keep the weight of packed boxes minimal to help avoid back injuries. Use our range of bubble wrap or wrapping paper to protect fragile items. Use moving blankets and furniture pads to wrap and cushion breakable items. When packing, place the heavier items at the bottom of the box and top with lighter items. To prevent injury and damage use our convenient packing trolleys and furniture dollies.
