Home Removals - Insurance

Accidents happen so it is always a good idea to protect the things that matter to you with a comprehensive insurance policy.

When you move house, most of your worldly goods will be travelling together in the same vehicle. Although our highly skilled crews will do everything they can to ensure all your belongings make it to safely to their destination, sometimes things happen which are beyond our control.

Andrew Porter Limited can arrange insurance which will ensure you are not left out of pocket if something goes wrong during the moving process. With our home removals and storage insurance you can rest easy, knowing your valuables are covered in the event of any damage during transit.  Fire insurance is included.

Why removals insurance is important

Home removals insurance allows you to cover yourself against losses greater than the limits set out in our terms and conditions. It also protects you against risks where you have no right of recourse over the removal contractor.

With removals insurance you will not have to prove negligence by the moving company as long as the cause of loss or damage is not excluded by the policy.

Insurance for transit and storage

Our removals insurance covers your goods against loss or damage while in our care and control.  We will provide a full policy wording detailing what our insurance covers, including full coverage on damage by breakage, vehicle accidents, fire, storm and theft.

Fire insurance on any stored items is included in the policy.

Andrew Porter Ltd's insurance will compensate for, replace or repair any lost or damaged goods, with the insurer's approval.

Cancellation waiver

We don't like to think the worst but to give you added peace of mind in the event of unforeseen circumstances, a cancellation waiver will mean you do not incur an extra charge if your move can't go ahead. Normally, you will be liable for a cancellation fee if you need to postpone or cancel the move after you have confirmed the date.

Late Key Waiver

The Late Key Waiver is designed to save you stress and money in the event that the removal team cannot gain access to your new house at the agreed time. 

Normally, we would charge £55 per hour plus VAT if your removal team is kept waiting at your new property.  Our Late Key Waiver gives you the flexibility of a three-hour time window for only £25 plus VAT, saving you up to £125 if there is a delay.

This means your crew will remain on site to unload your belongings until 7pm or until the crew's working hours are up according to the Working Time Directive.

Storage Insurance

At Andrew Porter Limited, we understand just how important your belongings are to you. Our removals and storage insurance will make sure all your items are protected while they are being stored for you.

We want you to be able to relax, knowing that all your treasures are safe for as long as they are out of your possession. Unlike many other professional storage services firms, we also include fire cover in all our insurance policies. 

Storage insurance allows you to cover your goods against loss or damage while in our care or control. We will provide a full policy wording detailing what our insurance covers, including full coverage on damage by breakage, vehicle accidents, fire, storm and theft.

Insurance is important as it covers losses greater than the limits set out in our terms and conditions and for risks where you have no right of recourse over the removal contractor, while your belongings are in transit to the storage facility.

Andrew Porter Ltd's insurance will compensate for, replace or repair any lost or damaged goods, with the insurer's approval.
