Moving insurance that covers your valuables every step of the way

When it’s time to move home, you take your most prized possessions with you. Moving insurance guarantees your belongings will be covered in the unlikely event of damage or loss.

This cover includes the time your belongings are in transit or storage. So, no matter where you’re relocating to or how long it takes, our moving insurance cover is available. The same level of moving insurance cover can be applied to local, interstate, and international relocations.

  • Our moving insurance covers your belongings while in transit and secure storage.
  • In the unlikely event you need to make a claim, we’ll assign a dedicated case manager who will assist you from start to finish.
  • We provide you with a detailed but easy to read insurance policy so you can determine if our cover meets your individual needs.

Frequently asked questions

Why should I take out cover?

Regardless of how unlikely it is, incidents such as road accidents can happen during our moving service. That’s why we recommend you take out a moving insurance product such as our household goods in transit and storage insurance.

Who do I contact about my policy?

It’s always best to contact us directly about any questions in regards to the moving insurance policy. Alternatively, you can contact our insurance broker.

Cowden (Vic) Pty Ltd can be contacted on telephone (03) 9686 6500, email insurance.vic@cowden.com.au, facsimile (03) 9686 3900 or letter PO Box 33044, Melbourne, VIC 3004.

Does my home and contents insurance cover it?

Home and contents insurance policies often don’t cover your valuable household goods and personal effects while being moved. Insurance companies may provide a limited restricted transit cover extension for fire, collision and/or overturning of the conveying vehicle within Australia only.

This limited cover usually stipulates that the loss or damage must be caused by one of the listed perils, otherwise the policy does not cover it. They don’t normally extend cover for unforeseen accidental loss or damage and loading/unloading risks that can occur during a relocation.
