Transit Protection Insurance

Are Your Worldly Possessions Properly Insured For Your Move?


It is highly unlikely that your home insurance company will provide you with the required protection against the possible loss or damage associated with international moving. King’s Transfer International can provide you with 3rd party coverage designed to protect your goods against the risks of moving by road, rail, air or sea.

Although our crews are skilled and trained in their field and exercise extreme care and attention to your possessions during packing, loading, delivery & unpacking, it is important to remember that your belongings will travel by road, rail, air or sea, which carries unforeseen risks. Your personal insurance policies (home owners, renters or automobile insurance policies) will likely not cover you for your personal belongings while they are in transit or moved to a foreign country. Even though King’s Transfer International will take every precaution to avoid damage, you can surely appreciate the distance travelled, the rigors of transport and the possibilities of a shipping disaster, means that the incidences of loss or damage may be increased.
