* Damage – caused during transit
As well as ALL RISKS COVER our polices can also cover UK RHA Conditions as well as UK & European CMR Conditions.
We can also provide insurance for furniture removers and insurance house removals.
* UK to UK house moves * UK to Europe removals
IMPORTANT NOTE – BE CAREFUL!!
Make sure that you are fully covered as you may not get the full 100% all risks cover you require.
As a courier you are sometimes unaware of what you delivering until you pick up the parcel or package.
If these items are what some insurance companies class as “target goods” i.e. iPods, computer parts, electronic equipment then you may only be covered for 50% if you make a claim.
So if your policy is covering you for £10,000, they will only pay up to 50% or £5,000 leaving you to make up the shortfall.
