Protect against accidential loss or damage

At Overseas Packers & Shippers we pride ourselves on safely moving you to your new home.

However, while we take great care to handle your possessions properly, there is always the risk of an accident, or influences outside our control that could damage your possessions.

Accidental loss or damage can occur as a result of:

  • fire, explosion, lightning, and flood
  • overturning and/or derailment of conveyance
  • collision of vessel, aircraft or conveyance
  • crashing or forced landing of aircraft
  • stranding, sinking, or contact of a vessel with any external object other than water
  • entry of water into any vessel, hold, container lift van or place of storage.

How do I select the amount to be insured?

There are a range of insurance options available to you and our Cosultants will help you choose the cover that best suits your needs.

The amount you pay for insurance depends on the value of the goods being moved or stored.

Other factors which determine the premium include:

  • type of insurance chosen (market or replacement value, transit or storage)
  • distance your possessions are transported
  • period your possessions are stored
  • insurance cover selected (all risks or only specified risks).
