Think of moving insurance as similar to Gap insurance when purchasing a new car to cover you if there is a “gap” in your loan if something happens to the car before it’s paid off. If there is any damage, Baker International will cover your items at 100%. Many of our customers neglect to purchase this insurance when they really should. It’s a small investment to ensure your world is not turned upside down by unavoidable damage in transit, or other unforeseen accidents that can happened during a move. Factor it into your budget and your piece of mind will be eased during this very chaotic time.
Reputable moving companies are fully insured, and licensed with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, and in our case, will reimburse you $0.60 per pound based on the total weight of the item. If the moving company you hire is licensed by the DMV and there are any issues with your move, the DMV will step in to mediate the case. This alleviates the need to file in small claims court which is a huge savings to you in both time and money.
