Marine Insurance Application

I Love moving recommends that you purchase Marine Insurance. You may use any Marine Insurance broker or company of your own choice.

The following information is provided courtesy of IntlMOVE and will enable you to consider purchasing insurance coverage via Atlas Insurance.

IntlMOVE is not a part of Atlas Insurance or Lloyds and takes no responsibility of any kind if you choose to purchase their services.  IntlMOVE is neither an Insurance Company nor an Insurance Broker; we draw your attention to the disclaimer in your terms and condition covering IntlMOVEs role and waiving responsibilities, in case you decide to purchase Marine Insurance.

If you choose to purchase Marine Insurance, you will be required to complete and sign an Insurance Application.  Your properly filled and signed Insurance Application must be received at IntlMOVE offices at least two business days before your goods are picked up.

Important note:
If your Insurance Application is not received at IntlMOVE offices, two business days prior to your pick up date, your shipment will not be insured even though you ordered insurance.  If you paid for Insurance your account will be credited for the cost of the insurance less the $75 processing fee.

Marine Insurance types and their requirements

There are two Marine Insurance types:

  • Limited Cover also referred to as Total Loss
  • All Risk Cover also referred to as All Risk

Important note:
If any portion of your shipment is packed by you, the insurance company will only issue a Limited Cover policy, for the exact description please check the Insurance company documentation.

Only if the entire shipment is packed professionally by the pick up team, will the insurance company issue an All Risk Cover policy.
