Removals Insurance - Protect your goods when moving house

Bishop's Move have an enviable record when it comes to looking after our clients and their possessions. However, with 160 years of removals experience behind us, we are realistic enough to know that accidents can happen from time to time. Most home contents policies do not cover personal effects during a house move and it is for this reason that we offer removals Insurance services as an added safeguard for our customers.

Whether you are moving 100 yards down the road or to the Outer Hebrides, Bishop's Move customers can do so safe in the knowledge that their possessions will be in the most capable hands. In the unlikely event that a claim has to be made, it will be dealt with efficiently and professionally. With our insurance policy you can have complete peace of mind, knowing that should anything go wrong during the move, your effects are fully covered by a comprehensive policy on which you can claim.

The vast majority of removal companies do not offer to insure your possessions, instead they insure their 'liability' for damage to your goods. This kind of insurance covers the remover and not the customer. This can be potentially costly and time intensive to the customer, especially if legal action is required against their removers in order to get compensation. Plus there is no independent ombudsman to review your complaint and agree an outcome!

Bishop's Move want to make the whole subject of insurance totally clear and hassle free to our customers which is why we have made insurance a requirement of moving with us. (Please note that our removals insurance is only exclusively availableto customers of Bishop's Move)

The insurance provided by Bishop’s Move is underwritten by a specialist insurer and is designed for the specific purpose of insuring your move from start to finish. The cover is short term, inexpensive and does not affect the claims record on your household insurance should a claim need to be made. 

Of course, if you are already insured elsewhere for moving house and can provide evidence of your insurance (via a policy wording, an endorsement or a note from your insurers/brokers) then we are of course very happy to accept this as evidence of your own insurance arrangements for the move.
