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.

  • You, or your moving truck, could be part of a no-fault accident that causes a lot of damage
  • A natural disaster such as fire or flood could impact your move
  • Accidents happen: you or your moving team may accidentally cause damage

Even a local move can be a risky proposition, especially if you’re working with a newer moving company. With more than 15 years of experience and many 5-star ratings, West Coast Moving Systems still recommends moving insurance to protect your assets.

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.
