Default Container Insurance Help

Hi all,
Can anyone recomend a reasonable insurer for a 20ft container please?

We have had a quote from Insure your move for 400 pounds to cover 25k of loss which seems great but has anyone used them or have had any good news from other companies please?

Thanks

Alfresco kindly provided this little nugget a week or two ago . They look okay - I'll probably be using them.

Oh we listed it too, but they said it wasn't covered. This was over 4 years ago and things could've changed.

The shippers (John Mason) built a bloody decent wooden crate to ship it in and we've kept it since. Charged fifty quid for it but well worth it ...

Yep can't fault their crates. Really good quality. Hopefully the plasma has survived.

AXA provide a good transit insurance if you're relocating with an approved mover.

I noticed in your shipping pics that there were lots of crates. The only crate that we;re having provided is for the the m/bike. We dont have a plasma TV but we have a couple of computer flat screens. I think the original packaging is in the loft somewhere so we'll maybe use those.

We had three crates made. One for the Plasma TV, one for the electric piano and one for the (hopefully very rare and pricey/priceless ) grandfather (or grand something) clock given to us by wifey's father when we got married.

Flat computer screens they just packed in boxes.

Best thing to pack anything in is the box it came in ...

Thanks all for your input some food for thought and leads to follow up

On the Pickfords front how did you find them? They are our proferred shipper but didnt get involved when we said insurance was offered at a much lower price than theres which we thought would have been a given
