Moving Insurance

Insurance For Your Peace Of Mind

Shleppers has 30 years of experience in moving, and customer service is the highest priority of the company. Nevertheless, it is always wise to be fully protected during your move. Shleppers offers a variety of options to protect your belongings:

Option 1

$0.30 (thirty cents) per pound per article valuation (Released Valuation).

On moves that are charged by the hour, in accordance with NYS Department of Transportation regulations, your Bill of Lading issued by Shleppers provides a “valuation” (i.e. insurance), at no cost to you, of the greater of

  1. thirty cents per pound on local moves or sixty cents per pound on long distance moves, per article; or
  2. $2,500 for the entire shipment.

This is a minimum amount of protection and the customer should be aware that this does not provide full coverage insurance for belongings. Having this protection does not exclude the purchase of additional third party insurance.

Option 2

$0.60 (sixty cents) per pound per article valuation (Released Valuation).

On moves that are based on a fixed price, in accordance with NYS Department of Transportation regulations, your Bill of Lading issued by Shleppers provides a “valuation” (i.e. insurance), at no cost to you, of the greater of

  1. sixty cents per pound on local moves or sixty cents per pound on long distance moves, per article; or
  2. $5,000 for the entire shipment.

This is a minimum amount of protection and the customer should be aware that this does not provide full coverage insurance for your belongings. Having this protection does not exclude the purchase of additional third party insurance.

Option 3

Full Replacement Value Insurance.

For customers who are seeking full protection for their goods while in transit, the best option is a third party insurer. Very often, your homeowner’s insurance will cover moving from one residence to another, so please check with your broker.

Otherwise, we recommend MovingInsurance.com and Baker Insurance. This coverage needs to be obtained prior to the actual move day.

Certificate Of Insurance

Many apartment buildings require that movers supply them with a Certificate of Insurance (COI). This insurance protects the owner of the building and is unrelated to any insurance related to your belongings. Please be sure to speak with your relocation consultant so that we can supply your building with a COI.
