When moving to a new location, there’s always a risk that your employees’ belongings can be lost or damaged through transport or handling. Organisations protect themselves by taking out insurance coverage, proposed by moving firms.
Unfortunately, these guarantees are not always adapted to the specific set of circumstances, and often lead to unnecessary additional costs.
Every move is different. They don’t all need the same protection.
The distance travelled, the mode of transport and the variation in weather and climate between locations can affect insurance premiums.
This is compounded by the fact that there is often little room to manoeuvre when negotiating with a moving company as their insurance fees are often presented as a fixed rate.
