Insuring our Personal belongings is common-place, as we recognise that what we own is precious, be it sentimentally, or because of it’s value when purchased. However, when it comes to moving your effects internationally, it becomes even more important. Your effects may be travelling by Air, Sea, Rail or Road and in some cases by combination, and this makes it more vital to ensure it is protected when travelling over long distances.
At Galleon International, we take every precaution, in our careful packing and handling of your effects. Our intent is always, to protect during the course of the move, either in transit or whilst it is in a storage period.Be mindful, that even with all the care we apply when handling at Origin, with all the best professional procedures in place, we cannot protect against every eventuality.
Here at Galleon International, we wish to give you confidence and peace of mind that your household effects are protected against loss or damage, by providing you choice in the Insurance Cover that is most suited to You. It is flexible, it is easy and it is secure.
This option establishes an Average Value per cubic feet / metre. The value is calculated on the Actual volume of household goods you are moving.
The premium will need to be recalculated if the Actual volume at time of collection differs from that initially estimated, and further payment will then be required.
For Road, Sea and Storage Shipments, the value is calculated at an Average rate per cubic foot, plus any individual items, Pairs, Sets or Collections noted at ‘High Value’, (**) which must be itemised separately and then added to bring a grand total.
(**) Please Note: Values differ in accordance to country currencies
Itemised Valued Inventory
This option is more specific whereby you complete an Insurance Declaration Form, itemising the effects to be moved by freight, and their respective replacement value at destination.
Irrespective of which Cover you select, any item of ‘High Value’ should be listed on the separate ‘High Value’ Inventory.
It is a documented record to indicate that specialised packing and / or internal crates have been customised to protect in transit.
