In most states moving companies are prohibited to sell moving insurance. So, you will find this special type of insurance at specialized companies or at companies that also sell homeowner insurance. Moving companies provide a form of support after a valuation. But this valuation is based on the weight of the items, not their true values.

So, a big screen TV may value just a couple of dollars, accordingly to that valuation. Clearly, nobody is satisfied with that comparison. This is why purchasing moving insurance is important.  You will need an assessed value moving insurance that is based on the value of the items. You will need to declare the value on the bill of lading.  Additionally, you can purchase full protection for all your items against destruction or loss. . Typically, there is a minimum coverage and applicable deductibles.

Since moving companies do not provide this type of service you must talk with your own insurance agent and check if any existing homeowner/renter insurance policy provides coverage for your items in transit. If not, search for specialized insurance agencies that provide moving insurance.

Make sure to understand all the terms, conditions and associated fees. Ask about types of coverage, degree of protection conferred by each one and its respective cost.
