Transit and Storage Insurance

Furniture is not designed to be moved! Whilst Allied Pickfords takes all the necessary precautions to protect your possessions, there are many outside forces beyond our control that need to be considered when moving such as weather, accidents, vibration, shock, pressure, movement and atmospheric changes.

After your goods are packed, they may pass into the hands of other organisations including rail and shipping companies, airlines, handling agents and customs and quarantine officials (when moving overseas). It is for these reasons that we strongly recommend that you consider transit insurance for your relocation.

To ensure your peace of mind against unforeseen circumstances, we have developed a comprehensive Transit Insurance Cover that is available to you to minimise the risk and exposure you can be subject to in the unfortunate event of an accident or major incident occurring.
