If you’re concerned about your belongings, you may want to consider buying moving insurance for peace of mind. Before you do, check your homeowner’s insurance. That policy may offer all the coverage you need. If not, below, we’ve provided a handy tool to help you estimate what moving insurance will cost you and what it will cover. But first, there are four things you should know:
- All licensed moving companies in Washington offer the same levels of insurance. Although prices may differ slightly, the insurance options are determined by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission.
- Industry standard for depreciated replacement value is 20% per year for furniture items.
- Some things can’t be insured, such as pets, plants, items of extraordinary value and items made of particleboard.
- Neo Moving will take every precaution to safeguard your belongings and ensure they are transferred to your new home safely.
This insurance option comes at no cost, and pays $0.60 per pound of an item in the event of damage. Unless a customer selects one of the other options, they will automatically receive basic valuation.
Replacement with Deductible
This option’s cost is calculated based on the total value of the shipment: either a lump sum or $5 per pound of the entire shipment, whichever is greater. Cost is $1.40 per $100 of value, and the plan pays all depreciated replacement or repairs less a $300 deductible. See the calculator below.
This option, like option 2, is based on the total value of the shipment. The cost is $1.40 per $100 of declared value, and pays all depreciated replacement or repair costs. See the calculator below.
