Dawson Insurance

Why do I need Insurance?

Having selected Dawson Moving & Storage Pty Ltd to perform your removal the question is often asked, “Why is insurance recommended?”

The plain facts are that whilst every care is taken with your belongings things can go wrong and accidents do sometimes happen. There are a wide variety of unforeseen circumstances that can occur for which we will not be liable.

You are free to select any Insurance Company you wish to assist you with arranging adequate cover whilst your possessions are being moved and/or stored.

Dawson Moving & Storage Pty Ltd as part of our complete removal services will provide the specialized Customer Goods in Transit and Storage Insurance Policy you may require. Our policies have been designed to comply with the Financial Services Reform Act 2001, in which we are authorized representatives for Aldridge & Street A Division of Cowden (Vic) Pty Ltd (AFSL 245658) a licensed insurance broker. We have over 70 years experience of moving and storing our customers’ possessions and offer the most comprehensive cover available today.

Full Cover Provides you with protection against loss or damage to your possessions whilst in transit.

Compensation is paid to you for any item lost or irreparably damage. Restoration is effected of any damaged item or compensation is paid for such damage.

Restricted Cover Provides you with cover only against loss or damage as a direct result of a specific event being fire, explosion, lighting and flood, overturning and/or derailment of conveyance; Collision of vessel, aircraft or conveyance; Crashing or forced landing of aircraft; Stranding, sinking, or contact of a vessel with any external object other than water; and entry of water into any vessel, hold, container, lift van or place of storage. Discharge of goods at a port of distress. Jettison of goods from a vessel. Theft, Pilferage or non delivery of an entire package or item. Compensation is based on the market value of the insured items.

Storage Cover:

An extension to your Transit Policy is automatically arranged where your removal requires storage. This ensures that your possessions are protected against the same risks as your Transit Policy provides whilst in storage. Premiums are charged at a weekly rate as detailed in our quotation and are billed to you with your monthly storage account.

The full Terms and Conditions of Insurance are detailed in the Product Disclosure Statement, the Financial Services Guide and the Policy wording, which you should read carefully and if unsure of any of the provisions seek further advice from our office or representative.

You should use the Insurance Declaration Form to calculate the value of your property to be insured and remember to make note of any items of a particularly high value e.g., antiques, works of art, precision equipment, curios, plate collections or the like which exceed $1000.00. Some items such as jewellery (including watches), money (cash or coins). stamp collections, personal paperwork, documents of value and precious stones cannot be insured.

It is important that you insure your property for its true total value, as if you declare a lesser sum and the property is undervalued any claim may be adjusted on the same basis or proportion that the actual value bears to the insured value.

The transit insurance premiums which would apply for your particular relocation are as follow :
