Peace of Mind from recognised insurers to the overseas moving sector. Insurance cover for international shipping is provided by
insurance giants Royal & Sun Alliance through our brokers Basil Fry & Co. the UK's leading insurers to the moving industry.
By ensuring safe and secure packing we enjoy the lowest claims record of any removals company in our sector. No compromises.
By minimising the risks we maximise the safety and security of your move, and drastically reduce any instances of loss or damage,
and, of course, insurance claims.
1st Move take the utmost care of your goods whilst in our care, however, due to the distances travelled and the need for other
parties to handle your goods, including overseas customs officers, we recommend that you take out our marine shipping insurance
to cover those occasional mishaps.
The perils of international transport are varied. Good insurance is therefore essential and, with the Flexi-Cover Scheme held by 1st Move International and underwritten by the insurance giant Royal and Sun Alliance PLC, you are assured of first class cover.
Our 3 international removals insurance products
- Standard Cover - 4% of declared value. Will cover for loss, theft and damage. Claims are subject to a Claims
Excess representing 1% of the Declared Value and subject to a minimum of £25 and a maximum of £250 deductible from any claim.
- Super Cover - 4.5% of declared value. This is is as per Standard Cover without a Claims Excess.
No deductions are made from any claim. Cover is loss theft or damage.
- Restricted Cover - 2% of declared value. This is available at a reduced premium but will only provide cover
in the the event of "Total Loss" of all goods.
You can insure all of your goods or simply those you feel are important to you, however we always recommend at least our Standard cover policy which is more than adequate to cover your goods in the event of loss and theft and includes damage cover for all goods packed by 1st Move.
Important Note: We are happy for you to save time and money by packing non fragile items, books, plastic toys, clothes, bedding
etc. However in the event of any claim for damaged goods your policy will only cover any items which have been checked, itemised and
packed by 1st Move.
If you have valuable or fragile items please allow us to pack them for you in order to obtain adequate insurance cover for any possible damage whilst in transit.
