Insurance cover is a must-have when moving regardless whether you are engaging the services of a moving company, or you are moving by yourself. The reason why insurance cover is necessary during the move is that you need to make sure that all your belongings are safe. Normally, some types of insurance - such as homeowner insurance - can offer protection to your property in the course of the move, as well as after the move. Nevertheless, not every item in your house is covered. It is important to talk to your moving company to have a clear understanding of what items are under your cover. Such prior clarification avoids you inconveniences later when some of your items get lost or are damaged but you cannot make any claims because you did not know that they were not insured.
Here are some of the items that cannot be insured when moving:
If you have any form of artwork in your possession, it is important to know that such an item does not fall under the items that will be covered by your moving insurance. The implication is that you should not expect compensation should anything happen to your piece of art. Do however; clarify with your insurance provider to be certain if there are any exemptions to your artwork.
Some people own unique items, which range from statutes to antiques. Most insurers do not offer a cover to such items when you are moving. Before you engage any moving company to carry your property, you need to be sure to what extent the insurance cover goes.

Irreplaceable items describe any property that cannot be replaced in any manner, in their inherent form. Such items are not covered by the insurance in that it is impossible to restore the natural form in case of damage. In addition, it is hard to restore the monetary value of most items in this category.
Collectables are items that have considerable high value and much interest to the person collecting them. For example, your curio falls under this category as it is considered an unusual property. As such, you should notify your moving services provider of any type of collectable item that you have before you move, so that they can advise you accordingly.
If you have any souvenirs in your possession, you should know that they are not covered by any insurance when moving. Souvenirs are any items that you keep in remembrance of an event, a place, or even a person. Such items grow their value with history and hence, should anything happen perhaps damage or loss, their value fades.
Getting insurance policy for your items is a short-lived relief on the safety of your property. While the aforementioned items cannot be insured during moving, you should still talk to your moving company about them. Having been in the moving business for a while, they must know what other options are available to you.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.
And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.
The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.
When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.
The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.
They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?
So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!
If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.
I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!
The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!
There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.
After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.
Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.
By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.
We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
