UK and International Removals & Storage since 1884
Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & Storage has been moving people since 1884, and we know that occasionally accidents can happen. We offer a variety of insurance packages to suit your removal and storage requirements.
Of course, we do everything we can to avoid a situation where you'd need to claim, including using the latest packing and loading techniques. But we're all human, and occasionally accidents can happen.
Domestic Moving Insurance
Check with your current home insurance provider to confirm if your contents insurance to ensure your possessions are covered while in transit, and what the coverage level is. Most do but these can vary depending on your type of policy. Some providers only cover providing that items are packed professionally by a registered remover. Also remember that should you need to make a claim your future premiums may go up for your home contents insurance.
While we offer insurance cover as an option for your removal, if your home contents policy is sufficient for your move, then you are not obliged to take ours. This is not the case with all removal companies.
Our standard policy covers your goods in transit up to £25,000 for the premium as shown on our quotations. This can be increased to any level but the policy will also cost more.
Our summary of insurance is sent out with every quotation. Note that if you intend to do your own packing, then loss of damage arising from the following is excluded: Breakage, scratching, denting, chipping, staining, and tearing unless directly caused by fire or collision or overturning of the transporting conveyance. Missing items or cartons or packages unless an itemised valued list of contents of each carton or package is supplied by you to the Company prior to commencement of transit.
In the unlikely event of loss and/or damage which may give rise to a claim under this insurance, immediate notice must be given in writing to the Company. Unless a time extension has been requested by you, and agreed by the Company in writing, it is a general condition under this insurance that full details of any losses and/or damages for removals and storage must be notified within 7 days after delivery or, in the case of non-delivery, within 7 days from when your property would normally be delivered. For overseas removals and storage outside the United Kingdom the time limit is 30 days. These time limits apply whether or not your property has been unpacked.
Should you need to make a claim, we'll treat your claim with respect, courtesy and professionalism.
Other types of insurance or waivers
Sometimes house sales don't go as planned due to the chain breaking down or issues with mortgages, etc. and you need to change your moving date.
Should you wish to cancel or postpone your removal date within 10 working days of your removal, you are normally liable for a portion of the move cost. This increases the closer you get to your scheduled move date. Our cancellation waiver allows you to change dates without paying additional charges.
Late key cover
Sometimes the house you are moving into has not been vacated in the agreed time or monies not gone through causing a delay in you obtaining the keys for your new home, you'll need to pay for waiting time. Waiting time can be costly, however, we provide a late key cover to protect you against this and avoid your move costing more than you'd planned due to your keys arriving late.
We offer this cover above our standard liability for buildings, doors, drives etc.
Insurance for international moves
International moves carry additional risks to your property, and we offer additional insurance for moves abroad.
