Insurance for Moving Companies

Insurance for Moving Companies

Moving people’s items from one place to another is a lucrative business in great demand. However, it’s also risky as it can be easy to accidentally damage another person’s property. Since you can rarely be sure exactly how much the items you’re moving are worth, you must exercise extreme care with each job. Accidents still can happen, though, and that’s why insurance for moving companies is crucial.

Moving Accidents Can Be Costly

While most moving jobs are likely to go without a hitch, an unfortunate incident can cost your company a significant amount. Take this example where a moving company dropped a piece of artwork. They were sued for a massive $250,000. This amount of money can often be enough to bankrupt a moving company. If the moving company had mover insurance in place, they would be protected against such costly claims.

Common Types of Moving Claims

There are several ways a moving company can find itself facing a lawsuit. The most common reasons are:

  • Damaging the items that the company is moving
  • Damaging the property – for example, damaging walls, door frames, and other areas of the home while carrying furniture
  • Causing injury by leaving trip hazards such as boxes in public walkways
  • Not fulfilling your contact obligations sufficiently
  • Accidents while driving the vehicle used for moving items

While you can minimize your risk by ensuring you follow all safety protocols and ensuring you have sufficient, experienced people for each job, accidents can still occur. This is where your insurance for house movers comes in.
