Moving Insurance

All your stuff is secure with Long Distance Movers, but in case something does happen to it, there’s a moving insurance policy in place. We offer both basic Valuation Coverage and Full Value Protection.

Moving Insurance

Relocation implies plenty of carrying, heavy lifting, loading, and unloading. Some of your items may get damaged during all that work, even with the most experienced team. However, with moving insurance, you can get additional protection and be compensated for every harmed (or even lost) item. With Long Distance Movers, you can choose which insurance option suits you the best – but our goal will still be that you don’t need to use it at all.

Are You Obliged to Get Moving Insurance Coverage, and Will It Help You Feel More Secure?

Moving, especially a long-distance one, is one of the most stressful periods in a person’s life, even when you have the help of the best cross-country moving company like ours. However, imagine how much more stress you would suffer from realizing that some of your belongings are damaged or gone and that there is nothing you can do about it?

That being said, getting coverage is not an obligation but rather a smart move. Investing in insurance from moving companies will help you sleep better during the relocation, but also stay calm if something does happen to your items. That’s why, when planning your budget, you need to include this cost as well.

What Are Your Insurance Coverage Options?

We at Long-Distance Movers care deeply about what our customers need, which is why you will be presented with several different coverage options. Since every relocation is different, we strive to provide a solution suitable for each client and its situation.

You’re always more than welcome to contact us if you need any advice. Our representatives will be more than happy to answer all of your questions and dilemmas and provide you with their professional opinion on the best policy for you.


Mandatory Liability Coverage

The first option is the Released Value of Mandatory Liability Coverage. It is a part of our basic offer and is cost-free. It will cover 60 cents per pound of damaged or lost goods. For example, if a sofa weighing 300lb gets harmed lost during the move, you will be compensated $180. With it, all of your items will be covered during the interstate move.

It is the best choice for goods that hold no emotional or monetary value to you. However, keep in mind that this insurance sometimes doesn’t provide enough protection. Do the math and see what the best option for you is.

Full Value Replacement

On the other hand, Full Value Replacement is an additional policy that comes at extra cost. It implies that you’ll be compensated based on the actual value of the damaged or lost item – there is no pound-counting necessary. The company will repair or replace damaged objects, or you will get financial reimbursement. However, Full Value Replacement applies only to the items packed by our professional packers.

Our Liability Does Get Limited Sometimes, so Ensure to Know When

Sometimes the damage may not be the consequence of our actions, but of the customer’s, and in that case, the policy doesn’t cover the damage. We aim to relocate all your belongings safely and efficiently to your new home. Our goal is not for some of them to get harmed or destroyed during the move, and neither is yours. According to it, it would be best to avoid:

  • Packing hazardous, toxic, and corrosive materials, as well as perishables – you need to get familiar with the list of items movers won’t move. There are good reasons some of them are on it.
  • Packing belongings on your own – customers are often new at packing and don’t have enough knowledge and experience, which can cause damage to some goods.
  • Not informing us that we are transporting a highly valuable item – moving companies have the right to limit their liability for high-value objects unless those belongings are officially stated.
  • Keep in mind that natural disasters also affect movers’ liability.

When Is the Right Time to File a Claim?

When our team gets to your new home, it’s unloading and unpacking time. While our long distance movers are reassembling furniture and getting boxes in your home, try as much as possible to see if some of your stuff is harmed. If you notice something, feel free to inform us immediately.

However, it doesn’t mean that we won’t accept claims after our team leaves your home. If you notice something is damaged while unpacking boxes we had packed earlier, you need to contact us. A satisfied customer is our ultimate goal, and we will try to solve the situation in your favor. Just remember – the sooner you contact us, the better the possibilities are that you’ll get reimbursement.

Take Precaution Even With the Best Cross-Country Movers

Do you wonder which long-distance movers near me I should choose when relocating to a new home? If so, don’t go for companies that don’t admit to making mistakes, but with one who has a protection plan when a mistake occurs. Providing you with a proper policy before the relocation is a part of it. As an honest and trustworthy long-distance moving company, we will never convince you that accidents don’t happen under our watch. However, we can assure you that we go above and beyond to prevent them. And in the rare cases, they do – we got you covered.

Just recently, I bought a used car in San Diego despite living in LA and needed a way for my car to be transported to me. Thankfully, my friend referred me to this place that was also in San Diego. Transporting a car could very expensive, but it was more affordable than I thought! so I scheduled everything accordingly and had them deliver my car to me. It was definitely worth it since my car was fairly cheap and my dad knew how he was gonna fix it so everything was worth it. They got my car to me and had no problem picking up as scheduled with the seller and no damage or hiccups during the transport! Very satisfied with the service and would definitely recommend them to my friends or anyone!

My sister in Portland was relocating to another country and she needed to get rid of a lot of her furniture and even some appliances and she decided to let me inherit them. She used Long Distance Movers in Portland and they effectively communicated with me when they would schedule to come deliver her stuff to my place I’m SF. Apparently she told me if I wanted to keep all her things to at least pay for their service in which I did. Good thing we coordinated because I just moved in to my new place and needed all the furnishings. I met the minimum for their service and they provided a reasonable contract and in turn everything turned out great! She even told how they carefully wrapped and packed up everything as well. Definitely a great service to use!

I was helping my friend move back down to California from Seattle. There’s a lot of moving companies but I went with this one because of their quote per item and distance moved was something she can afford. Then we set a schedule for moving and they came prepared with their trucks and Mark was their lead guy and helped us out with everything. He coordinated the whole move gracefully with no damage and even covered her things to protect, a nice touch.

Especially with moving large appliances, I was appreciative to receive help moving all of the heavier objects we had.

The movers delivered all of the belongings safely to the new house and were again, super punctual with their delivery.

My car is a really old Volvo and since it is now considered a vintage/retro automobile, I was extremely weary about having it transported to my area. Honestly, I don’t know much at all about these services, but I was really worried about moving companies in general, especially because of the risks involved, including damages that may happen during handling while being transported.

During my last move, I used a different moving service and it was a nightmare. I paid a lot and had a vintage, German-made GRAND piano get scratched and no one took responsibility. It was a huge disappointment but this time, I decided to look elsewhere and took a chance with Long Distance Moving and Auto transport, and they really delivered.

Everything came perfect and the price was less than $800 for the whole service… comparing it to my previous service, I’m shocked to say the least. The price is great, and for someone who was worrying like me, they had a policy where they would cover any damages (if they should incur) during the move/transportation and it put me to ease. I can’t say enough good things.

I bought a car in Tarant County Texas since the sales tax is non existent and my dad suggested getting a car from his friend’s used dealership. My dad offered to get me the car, but I would have to only pay the shipping. Long distance movers had auto shipping and it was a good price to get my car transported from there to the bay. It was really affordable for me and when I got my car, it was still perfect in the condition in which we bought it for. They were very professional through whole process and informative. Definitely a 5 star rating for the service and professionalism!

Kaitlyn V. Fountain Valley, CA

I got a car while I was visiting my family in the Bay. So I needed it to be brought down to SoCal, because I wasn’t finished with my vacation yet and went by plane. After searching for moving companies, I found one in San Fransisco.

Long distance movers offered me a good rate per mile compared to other companies. The workers reassured me on the condition of my new car when it would arrive safely in SoCal. They said they would insure the car from any damages, and there’s no need to worry.

I’m glad I found this company because they made me feel like I was in good hands, and they definitely proved it to me. If you need a moving company, be sure to check this one out because they made my life a lot easier!

I was in NY over the summer and when it was over I moved back home. During that timw I also needed to store things and then have it shipped to me back home later. Thankfully I was able to do that with Long Distance Movers! They were able to store my stuff until I was home to be shipped back to me. The space in NY apartments are very scarce and sk this is the way I had to keep my things instead of asking my friends there to do so. My experience was a pleasant and stress-less one and I have zero complaints with their service! A huge recommend!!

Matthew A. San Diego, CA

My uncle is no longer driving his car and wanted to ship me his car to keep and make room in his garage so he can store his other belongings so a family friend can move and do some care taking.

I did some hunting and came across Houston Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport as well as some others. They were one of the first one who got back to me with quote that was more than reasonable for cost per mile in an open trailer. My uncle was more than happy to hear that I took care everything for him and they were really courteous and helpful when they came and picked up his car.

A week later the car was transported and delivered with care. Contract all signed and done. Now I gotta new used car just like that! I highly recommend this team should you need some good pricing and service!

This was my first time using a moving and transportation service. I had a very good experience with Manhattan Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport. I was attending college around the area in New York and once I graduated, I had so much stuff that I wanted to take back home with me in Washington. This would be shipping across the country so I know that I needed a long distance service.

I checked out the website and filled in my information to get a quote. I was surprised by how affordable the price was, considering I am moving all my stuff across the country. It made it easy for college students to be able to use the service. Anyways, I called them and had an excellent customer experience. The representative was friendly and attentive to my needs. They did not try to up-sell me anything and was very fair in the pricing and guidelines of what to expect next. They described the entire process to me and I felt very confident and at ease in continuing with the process.

The movers came over to my apartment and moved everything into a truck very fast and safely. These are real professionals who want to make your move as smooth as possible. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with this company and after moving back home, everything came in about 2 weeks to my home address. Nothing was missing or damaged. I would recommend this service to anyone in the New York/Manhattan area who want to move long-distance while maintaining affordable prices.

So my boyfriend is actually the person that found Long Distance Movers and I swear it saved me time and money! My initial plan was to have my family help us make the long drive from Seattle to Los Angeles and just penny pinch that way.. but nope! My boyfriend came thru and he said that he was told that LDM was professional and are very competitive in pricing so why not?! He said that he booked them and just let him do the rest (typical alpha male stuff I guess)..

I was a little hesitant at first but 2 people showed up on time! And also were very well prepared, it’s like they knew how to tackle on each project I was throwing at them and on top of that with a smile! They wrapped/boxed everything so quickly I was so impressed! I would definitely refer them to my friends and family in the area, I can’t stop saying this enough but they were polite, proficient, quick and also not too expensive.

Moving is such a headache and stressful but I swear I wasn’t this time! Thank you LDM and to my bf for finding them!!

Roger M. Pasadena, CA

My sis graduated from Reed College earlier this year so i flew over to Portland to help her move back home. She had a lot of stuff she decided to keep last minute, more than we anticipated to ship back ourselves. We aren’t super familiar with moving services in the area but decided to go with Long Distance Movers since they responded with a quote the quickest and offered to have everything packed and loaded before we had to catch our flight in a couple days.

My sis and I are pretty weak so they were a really big help especially with packaging her desk and other big items. There were 2 movers and they packaged and cleared out everything quickly. Honestly, I don’t know how we were planning to move all her things ourselves. Us two wouldn’t have made it past the apartment stairs so we definitely needed Long Distance Movers.

Moving away from home for the first time can be a pretty daunting task. Luckily, Long Distance Movers had my back. I recently moved down from Sacramento to SoCal for university and needed a way to move a lot of my belongings down with me. I was originally recommended by a friend who had used their services before. All it took was a quick message through Yelp and they replied quickly with an estimate and more questions about my inquiry.

On the day of the actual move, they were punctual and loaded my stuff in what seemed like no time. Once I came down, everything had been delivered safely and was in great condition. My housemate who received my stuff said they unpacked my stuff neatly and without much obstruction at all! Communicating with them was seamless and super straightforward, and kudos to the driver as well! Overall, I’d say my experience was great and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the Sacramento area who wants to move something and are afraid of their items being damaged.
