Removal & Storage Insurance Details

Transcorp – AFRA Accredited Insurance Providers

Best in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 – Australia Business Champion

Transcorp Removals & Storage offers removals insurance for complete peace of mind. While our experienced removalists take the utmost care with all items they handle, we want our customers to relax knowing they’re covered in case of accident, theft or breakage.

Because we understand it can be confusing to organise removals and storage insurance yourself, our qualified estimators can directly organise your insurance without you needing to go through a third party broker or insurance agent. This is because we’re an accredited AFRA insurance provider. If a removalist is not an AFRA member, they aren’t legally able to offer insurance to protect your goods. AFRA is there to protect you!

Why Organise Insurance Through Transcorp?

Part of the AFRA (Australian Furniture Removals Association), Transcorp Removals & Storage prides itself on having carried out careful removals in Australia since 1987. Our expertise is part of the reason why we keep holding the title of Removal & Storage Company of the Year.

Whether you’re moving around the corner or across Australia, we offer affordable accidental damage and theft insurance at very competitive removalist insurance rates. Benefits include full replacement value or restricted cover, with extended cover available for storage. Remember, your insurance paperwork MUST be completed, signed off, sent back to us and the premium paid prior to any work commencing.

Do I Need Removals Insurance?

At Transcorp, we recommend that all of our customers take out removalists insurance to ensure peace of mind for their move. Regardless of how careful our professional removalists might be, accidents do happen and you need to have peace of mind that your household / office goods are protected. While we aim to take the greatest care with all belongings we handle, taking out removals insurance will ensure your belongings are covered in case of accident, theft or breakage.

If You Store My Goods, Do I Have to Take Out Separate Insurance to Cover This?

We recommend that all storage customers consider insurance to cover their goods while in storage. However, taking out separate insurance is not necessary. As an AFRA accredited insurance provider, we’re able to arrange insurance directly with you so you won’t have to go through a separate third party insurance provider for storage of household and business goods.
