Moving to Australia Transit Insurance

Moving overseas / shipping insurance is a worthwhile addition to give you peace of mind during your move. Ausmove takes every precaution to ensure your items are securely packed for shipping and moved without damage or loss but unfortunately when moving overseas some damage or loss can occur. This is why we recommend you purchase marine insurance to protect your items.

Fortunately, Ausmove provides a number unique insurance options tailored to meet your needs. Our insurance proposal details the terms and conditions of your cover in a language you can understand. It guides you room by room throughout your home, making the whole exercise as simple as possible.

Our marine insurance options are:

  • Comprehensive Cover - this will cover your effects for a wide range of possibilities including electrical and mechanical derangement cover.
  • Loss Cover - restricted to the loss of your shipment.

While Ausmove will securely pack your belongings with care, the unexpected can happen. We recommend transit insurance to ensure you are covered should the worst happen. If it’s worth moving, it’s worth protecting.

You’ve spent weeks deciding what to ship to your new home in Australia, and what to discard. You’ve packed everything thoroughly, wrapping and boxing up your life. Why take all this effort if you’re not going to insure it in transit?

The saying ‘worse things happen at sea’ applies to this scenario. Ships sink. Containers fall off and disappear. While we take precautions by adhering to strict packing and shipping best practices. Loss or damage of your possessions is the absolute worst-case scenario, but you need to be aware of this risk.

Don’t assume your contents insurance will cover you for transit - it’s likely that even if moving your contents is covered, it may only be for national relocations on the road.

Protect against disaster

At sea, the biggest danger is weather. Cyclones or hurricanes can cause significant damage to the cargo vessel. While the likelihood of a Titanic-esque disaster are slim, cargo ships can sink. Also containers have been known to become dislodged from the ship and be lost at sea.

The other major risk is due to human error. Despite the best skill and care, accidents on board can happen. Especially when loading or unloading cargo, losses can occur.

Insurance options tailored for you

Choose an option that works for your situation. Every person and each family have different needs, so why should your insurance be any different? Don’t pay for anything you don’t need, but make sure everything is covered.

Comprehensive cover

This insurance covers your household effects for almost every possible scenario. This includes loss as well as electrical and mechanical derangement. This covers accidental loss, physical damage or destruction of your property.

Free storage cover

With all our transit insurance, we give you 30 days of free storage cover either at the origin or your destination. This means you can relax, knowing your goods are safe until they are shipped or picked up.

Three outstanding features of our insurance cover are:

  • Inclusive of 30 days free storage cover at origin or destination
  • Either nil excess for restricted cover or $250 excess for comprehensive cover
  • Underwritten by Vero Marine Insurance
