Transit Insurance: How it Works
When moving in Melbourne or anywhere around the world, there are many boxes to tick, the transit insurance is one of them: never move without it.
Moving houses means moving your life. Every mover has spent their lifetime making collections of different household items some of which have massive sentimental value.

When moving, any household item will move through many hands. For instance, Man With A Track, any item will move through the packing staff, to the removal vans or tucks, before offloading to the new home. Certainly, if you hire the Man With A Truck to move you, your belongings will certainly be handled professionally. Unfortunately, not amount of careful handling can prevent accidents. The household transit insurance covers against such losses and damages from accidents.
