Default Insuring goods whilst in transit

3 bed house contents and car coming out roughly 40K, hope I've done the sums right PSS wants to charge 2.8%. so £1120.
does that seem reasonable?
anywhere else I can get quotes from?

Everyone usually recommends Letton Percival. Well worth getting a quote from them even if you do eventually decide on your shipper's insurance, your shipper may not come down to LP's quote but they'll probably move a bit towards it. Also I think most policies recommend you value stuff at the replacement cost at your destination - just worth checking.
John.

We used Crown & they were excellent. They have offices here in NZ & a branch in Wellington, so they don't have to sub contract once here & they sorted all the MAF stuff out. Our goods arrived 100%.... nothing broken or missing, I was very impressed with the service. They weren't the cheapest but we wanted to be sure we didn't loose anything (hubby's CD collections, lol) In total with full insurance it cost 5K for a 3 bed house, we used a 20 ft container & a little bit more.

just spoken to Letton Percival and what a very helpful man it was to.
prices are 1.25% of total so a lot less and they cover mould, pairs as standard whereas some others charge for these.
So thanks John very much appreciated

they don't charge extra to insure against mould and meldew, as well as replacing both items if one of a pair gets damaged. whereas some insurers charge extra for this type of thing
