This is insurance specifically designed to cover your goods during international shipping, which can occur by land, sea, air or a combination of two or all three elements according to your destination. Factor in loading and unloading for each method of transport, along with storage at intermediate warehouses, and the potential for accidents increases.

Your Removal Contact gives you some rights of recourse against your moving company and they will pass on to you rights of recourse that exist against shipping lines and airlines. However these won’t always be adequate by themselves. They are limited by international conventions and often require proof of negligence. Given the number of hands through which your goods pass this is, in practice, far from easy. It is also difficult to instigate litigation in a foreign country with an alien legal code and in a different language.
