The basics of a moving insurance package
You have the choice to purchase a moving insurance package from your moving company. Many customers are unaware that this is a viable and affordable option to provide better protection to their belongings. Movers are obligated to obey the rules and regulations and to work within the liability limits set by the company. Although, this will not cover moving mishaps and unfortunate events. Only the moving insurance will provide additional coverage, and in some cases full coverage. At U. Santini Moving & Storage, you will get all the coverage you desire. But be sure to communicate with your movers and ask everything you are unsure of. We value the trust you placed with us. Our team will answer all your questions and make sure that your expectations are met. Let us evaluate your cargo and provide the best protection to your belongings.
Do you need moving insurance NYC?
If you decide to purchase the moving insurance, you’ll obtain the full coverage and the complete protection against unfortunate events. Even if the damage caused while transportation is exceeding the valuation limits, you’ll be reimbursed adequately. Some of the customers do not consider this as an option since they perceive it as an unnecessary cost. They are already paying for the moving service and consider themselves sufficiently covered. Although, we strongly encourage you to consider this additional cost as the investment in the preservation of your valuables. Especially if you possess irreplaceable items like antiques, artwork, family heirlooms, old furniture, a piano, etc. Also, this applies to expensive office equipment. For the business move, we recommend commercial movers Brooklyn. There is no team in the area that will protect your business like our commercial moving team.

Santini Moving & Storage is providing a reliable moving insurance NYC. With us, you won’t need to read the fine print at the bottom of the moving contract. Our only purpose is to make our customers happy and to maintain the reputation we built over the past century. Trust and honesty are the way to do it. Give us a call today and let us evaluate your relocation project and assemble an insurance policy that suits you.
The types of moving insurance NYC we provide
When we talk about the insurance coverage, we covered all there is. We offer the basic insurance coverage you receive by default. This means we will reimburse you the percentage of the damaged item value based on its weight. Next, is the partial coverage where you can cover only the expensive and notable pieces. And finally, the full coverage where you are protected from all damages regardless of the value of the item. You are protected even from theft and acts of nature. Although, keep in mind that unique pieces can’t be easily replaced, or not even replaced at all. In case of the unfortunate events, we will try to reimburse the monetary value of the item in question.
We encourage you to obtain knowledge about moving insurance even further. Communicate with the moving company you enlist, especially if someone else is purchasing the service for you. This is important when your employer is paying for your relocation. It is good that your superior enlisted commercial movers Brooklyn services, as the best corporate relocation service.

Whatever is the case, you must inform yourself about the service you are receiving and confirm that you are protected. Here at U. Santini Moving & Storage, we will make sure that you are aware of the service you are enlisting. Your satisfaction is the key to our success.

Other insurance coverages
You can always seek the full coverage from the third party insurance companies.

Some insurance policies do not cover moving endeavor at all. You might think otherwise if you did not read the fine print at the bottom of your moving contract. Or you simply missed out on the part of it. Insurance companies have countless rules that might rob you of reimbursement. A fine example is a liability made by the usage of your own vehicle.
