Recommended Posts

Insurance of your Household Goods and Personal Effects as you move from the UK to Australia.

The overall cost of moving to Australia can be substantially reduced, if you decide to arrange the insurance of your Household Goods and Personal Effects through Letton Percival.

Letton Percival have long provided insurance solutions and advice to individuals and families moving to Australia and other parts of the world.

Whilst many shipments remain insured by the removal companies, more and more people are realising that the alternative cover provided by Letton Percival is easily arranged, insured with first class Insurers, and gives wider standard cover than the removal companies, at a fraction of the cost.

Excellent customer feedback on both premium saving and claims satisfaction continues to be given across all of the expat forums, and as a result, a large proportion of business written by Letton Percival, is as a result of personal recommendation.

With rates from 1.30%, new for old cover as standard, and mould and mildew and electrical and mechanical derangement cover included at no additional premium, Letton Percival is a market leader in this very specialised class of business.

Go to our website, www.lettonpercival.co.uk, for a no obligation quotation, or for more information about insuring your Household Goods and Personal Effects with Letton Percival.

Doesn't insurance cost extra money and therefore increase the cost of moving? I also thought most movers had some basic level of insurance included anyway.

Never assume that movers have insurance included.  Some do, some don't, and if they do, it's very basic indeed.

Hi Community Good Morning Every One

We do however recommend that you take out Insurance as accidents can happen and mistakes by third party handling are possible during any removals overseas. If you are moving with your employer or a new employer, the company may already self-insure. If not, make sure that you have adequate international removals Insurance cover in place prior to shipping.

Please be advised of the following when insuring your household effects for International removals: Posted By Hotmail

We used the insurance provided by the moving company. Letton Percival had a number of hidden fees where as the moving company didnt. They were also able to match the rate we were charged, so just to make it easy we used them and kept everything with one company.

Hi all, just wanted to hear peoples opinion on taking out the insurance when shipping furniture / goods.

A) Do people think it's worth paying for the insurance?

B) Has anyone had their items damaged or lost? Like is something that is likely to happen?

We’ve done two big household moves, and did not take out insurance on either move.

We felt that if our container sunk in the sea, we could accept that as we have nothing of any real value really, just stuff, and it was a gamble we were prepared to take.

Nothing major was broken, a glass here or there, and that was it.

Considering the cost of insurance and the excess / small print conditions attached to these types of policies, it was a risk we were prepared to take, but like all insurances, you need to weigh up the risk to yourself versus the benefits.

 


Left UK 1990 / Lived in Perth, WA for 28 years / Returned to UK late 2018 and stayed for six months.

Returned to Australia April, 2019, then re returned to UK June 2019, where next is TBC ?
