Valuation (Insurance) for Overseas Moves
To protect yourself against potential damage or loss to your household shipment while in transit to the final destination, you may want to consider some form of valuation (insurance). Global Van Lines has over 40 years of experience helping individuals with overseas relocations, and we are the only company to provide you with a Moving Concierge to help orchestrate your international move.
Your dedicated Moving Concierge can help you determine if coverage is appropriate for your individual situation. This may include marine insurance coverage obtained through our worldwide network of service providers, or some other type of policy to protect international shipments from door to door.
Understanding Valuation and Overseas Moves
It is important to accurately value the entire shipment and that the values reflect the replacement values at the destination country. Undervaluing a shipment can result in problems with reimbursements in claims situation. Your Global Van Lines Moving Concierge can work with you to help ensure the accuracy of the valuation.
Types of Coverage Available
In addition, it is important to understand the various types of coverage available for overseas moves. Some policies will cover your goods from time of possession to delivery at your new home. Some policies terminate with shippers at the port. Let your Moving Concierge help you with understanding the various policies available.
Global Van Lines is committed to assisting you with each aspect of your overseas move, including valuation. When you trust your possessions to a service provider within the Global Van Lines network, you know they have the experience, expertise, and resources to carefully pack, wrap, and load your household goods for the rigor of international transportation.
Of course, the unexpected can happen. Any journey by air, road, or sea has associated risks of accidental loss and damage during the journey or handling at sea ports and airports and any customs inspections. That’s where insurance comes in. Be sure to ask your Global Worldwide agent about the insurance options available for your upcoming move. Most international movers will have several options to choose from, and moving insurance will give you peace of mind about your possessions.
