Moving to a new home is hard work. Packing up your life into boxes and deciding what stays and what goes, can be tough. It’s logical then to ensure what you take with you can be repaired or replaced if it is damaged or lost in transit. We can even cover items while they’re in professional storage.
Although most generic contents insurance policies provide cover for your belongings while they’re in transit, the level of cover can be quite limited. We recommend you check any existing policies, and any policy requirements. Our specialised household removal insurance covers a range of options whether you're moving down the road, to the next suburb, a new city or overseas. If you’re unsure exactly how much cover you need, our removal valuation guide can help.
We can even cover you for items in storage at a commercial storage facility for up to six months.
If you need to make a claim, the following excesses (deductibles) will apply:
- $250 for professionally packed household goods and personal effects (if you’ve packed them yourself it’s $1,000).
- 1% of the sum insured, with a minimum of $500, for motor vehicles and caravans (if you haven’t completed the Pre Shipment Condition report this could be higher)
