If you are staying with your current home insurance provider, they may be able to quickly and easily change your address and help you to source the appropriate cover for your new home.
Some insurance providers will offer cover for any damage your items receive in the moving process, although they may need to be packed away by professional home movers in order to insure them.
Because properties are considered to be a high risk during the moving process, you may find that your premiums will be a little high than usual. Many home insurance providers recognise that your home will be under more threat from damage, theft and break-ins. There are a few things you can do to make sure you're well protected:
- Change the locks on doors and windows
- Add fitted security and alarms to your new home, if you have not already.
- Use new passwords or codes for your security.
- When you finally move home, make sure that the removal van is secure and that your items are safe.
You may want to contact your insurance provider and see if they can offer you a good deal. Alternatively, you can shop around online and compare a few home insurance for moving house quotes so that you receive the best home insurance cover and price.
