Basic liability is not insurance!
According to §451e of the Commercial Code, the basic insurance/basic liability by a removal company is only €620.00 per cubic metre of removal goods. If your crockery, furniture and other removal goods significantly exceed this amount, it is advisable to take out additional transport insurance. Of course, it is also possible to insure your household effects at replacement value - for all removals and storage worldwide. However, even with the greatest care, the possibility of damage can never be completely ruled out, for example due to a traffic accident that was not your fault.
The removal transport insurance
Insurance costs money. No insurance can cost you a fortune. This can happen: Even if the removal company takes the greatest care, the removal goods can be damaged. Especially the different means of transport, which are often used for removals abroad, increase the risk of damage.
You should know this: If something is broken or lost, your mover's liability is limited by law. And in certain cases he is not liable at all, e.g. in the case of unavoidable events. In extreme cases, you are left sitting on the damage. Here's what you can do: With the right removal insurance, you reduce the cost risk in the event of transport damage or loss of the removal goods.
