Cheaper shipping insurance from Ireland

Recommended Posts

Guest Kate10

Hi guys,

 

Our movers came yesterday and packed up our house - have to say they were fantastic. Very professional, organised and nice. Only problem for some reason I had misread the insurance quote and only realised yesterday morning that it was 3.5% Nearly lost my life as we had budgeted about €500 to €700 and it was going to be a multiple of that.

 

So at about 7am yesterday i got on the net - found insureyourmove in the UK that does it for about 1.6% which would have been brilliant but couldn't figure out if they covered Ireland and their number was a freephone one so couldn't call it from Ireland.

 

So I got googling - found that Allianz did it but will only quote through a broker. Googled again and found a broker called Affinity Insurance. Rang them and spoke to Alexandra who got me a quote for €800 in less than an hour - this was 2.1% which was a big improvement on the movers quote. Alexandra felt she could do better for us but given that I had left things to the very last minute we took that quote (Insurer was Allianz).

 

So I just thought I would let other Irish people know that there are other options to your movers insurance provider (ours would have dropped their quote to 2.5% but still not as good as Affinity).

 

If anyone is interested I can give contact details but you can google them and get their website fairly easily.

 

Good luck everyone!

hi Wendy,

Wow you got a better deal than us! We used Aachener - they collected from Galway and will deliver to Perth, also all packing and unpacking included, full 20 ft container, all in (excluding customs) €4980. Very happy with the service so far. Well done you on your negotiation skills! We're flying out on Monday. Movers collected on Monday gone.

Hey there,

I got a quote from ras-group.ie for 70 cft ,€650 with customs clearance fees on top around 250aud.This was the best price out of the lot,i think they charge a lot more for smaller amounts cause all id be sending is a high pallet of stuff.

 

Fecking money racket..

:eek:
