We will always require proof of this before a company can be accepted to ensure you and your personal belongings are protected throughout the house move.

Public Liability insurance, however, covers the costs of injury to any member of the public, including yourself and anyone helping you move. It will often cover the cost of any damaged or lost items as well.
