Moving to a new home may not always be easy, but there are ways you can make it as hassle-free as possible. For instance, you can hire professional movers to help you out. Your preparation shouldn’t stop here, though. Whether you opt to move on your own or enlist the services of a moving company, make sure that you have insurance coverage to protect your personal property.
Star Moving Solutions, one of the top residential and commercial movers, discusses a few things about your home insurance and additional coverage like transit coverage.
Home Insurance and Moving
Some homeowner, renter and condo insurance policies may provide protection during and after your move. That said, make sure to check your insurance and have a good understanding of what it already has covered. Look for a particular clause stating coverage for your items while in transit or in temporary storage.
Nevertheless, keep in mind that using your home insurance to file a claim may cause your premiums to increase. This can become an on-going cost, so you might want to consider having a one-time policy just for the move. Whether you’re hiring short-distance or long-distance moving companies, keeping your personal items protected will give you peace of mind.
Transit coverage provides protection for a property during transit via land from one location to another. Typically, property insurance policies can only cover the locations identified in the policy. With transit coverage, you can be protected from loss or damage while the items are being transferred from one place to another. The area or distance covered as well as the limitation of amount are usually defined by the insurance policy.
