short-term, low-cost cover
With our experienced team, your belongings are in safe hands, but for extra protection we offer low-cost, short-term insurance cover. Ideal for items in transit, rest assured that any claims don’t affect household insurance history or no-claims bonuses.
Protecting your possessions when you move
Ballards always pack your items safely and securely and use appropriate loading techniques to minimise the risk of loss or damage to your personal effects when you move. Our fully trained, experienced staff take every possible precaution to keep your items safe.
However, sometimes accidents can happen, even in the steadiest of hands. To give you extra peace of mind, we can arrange insurance which meets the standards set out by the British Association of Removers.
Why take out separate removals insurance?
While your house insurance will probably cover your furniture and valuables when you move, if you make a claim this will affect your claims history and impact your no-claims bonus.
Separate Goods in Transit insurance is an insurance policy specifically designed for the occasion of your move. It’s a short-term, low-cost cover and if you make a claim it won’t affect your household insurance history - not one bit! Don’t forget to tell them you’re moving, though, so your possessions are covered at your new address.
“Move from store with two men driving 2 vehicles.They must have started very early in the morning, drove a long way and very cheerfully unloaded a very large number of boxes and some furniture. Top marks to the removers.They were cheerful and very polite and careful despite the heavy workload. Best move we have ever had! ”

“Throughout the moving process Ballards were extremely helpful and supportive. The initial 'quotation' visit and support from office staff was excellent. On moving days all of the 'guys' were superb; hard working, friendly and very professional-despite the heat!”
