Benefits of Moving Insurance

At West Coast Moving Systems, our primary responsibility is in keeping your possessions safe and protected throughout your move. If you’re wondering whether additional moving insurance is worth the cost, consider the possibilities that could happen during your move.

Supplement Your Homeowner’s Insurance

While your homeowner’s insurance may cover some of the costs that could be incurred during a move, it’s unlikely that you would receive your full replacement value of any items that are damaged. What you truly need is full replacement coverage, something that is offered by many moving companies.

Full Replacement Versus Per Pound Coverage

In the state of California, moving companies are only required to reimburse customers for damages up to $0.60 per pound, per item. When you consider that a pound of feathers and a pound of diamonds weigh exactly the same amount, you can see how this coverage may not be enough to reimburse you in the event of a catastrophe. While we all hope that you don’t need this additional coverage, the reasonable added cost provides you with peace of mind during your move.
