Choosing is always a person’s own matter and they are the ones who choose it the most, so if you’ve ever had experiences with a bad moving company, it means you are the one who made a bad choice and have no one else to blame, but learn from your mistakes.
However, if you are moving for the first time or simply haven’t learned from your mistakes yet, then this blog is for you.
When you choose the right services and the right moving company, it will significantly reduce the risk of losing or damaging items during the move.

Moving Insurance as Your Best Friend

Maybe you already have an idea of what moving insurance is, and you’ve likely encountered this term before, but just in case, let’s go through it again.
Moving insurance refers to all types of insurance offered during a move or transportation of goods to avoid damage or loss of items. Of course, accidents can still happen where items are lost or damaged, but insurance will cover all the damage and loss, ensuring you get compensated.

In New York City, there are various types of moving insurance when it comes to relocation and transportation of belongings.
Released Value Protection
This is often considered the basic level of protection and may not always be sufficient to cover the full value of your items. It is often included in the standard moving cost and provides minimal coverage of around 60 cents per pound per item.
Full Value Protection
This type of insurance provides more comprehensive coverage and is often preferred. It covers damage, loss, or theft of your items at their full value. Evaluating the value of your items is usually required for this coverage and additional fees may apply.

Choose Professional Packing Services

One less recommended way is to try to pack your belongings yourself and prepare them for transport. Why is it not so advisable? Mainly due to lack of experience.
Moving requires a lot of expertise, which is why it’s advisable to hire a professional moving company that can make good and, most importantly, secure moves for you, ensuring all your belongings reach their destination.
