3) Insurance & Legitimacy of Service Provider

If you have a renter’s or home owner’s insurance that only insures your furniture and household items within your address that it is insured to, it does not cover your items during the moving process. To safeguard yourself during a move, you must purchase relocation insurance and this only applies to items packed and moved by the movers themselves. If you pack them yourself and there are any damages incurred, this will not be covered.

Another important aspect of insurance is it will tie in to your moving contract, or bill of lading between you and your house movers. This ensures the legitimacy of the movers and will ensure the safety of your belongings by law.
