Dive deep into customer reviews, and don’t shy away from asking for references. Transparency is key, and any reputable company like JHB Removals would be more than willing to provide it. Always ensure a written agreement.

The fine print matters – comb through all terms and conditions, especially those pertaining to damages and losses. Insurance options? Absolutely vital. Align with companies that offer comprehensive insurance plans. And never underestimate the power of communication. Maintaining open channels with your removal company can preempt many potential pitfalls. Remember, the more informed and vigilant you are, the safer your move will be.

What Insurance Do I Need When Moving Furniture with JHB Removals?


Let’s break it down for clarity. The cost? It stands at 3.5% of the value of goods you aim to insure plus VAT. To paint a clearer picture, for goods valued at R100,000, you'd be looking at R4,025. There's an R3,400 claim fee for the All Risk Insurance tailored for furniture removals.

However, certain stipulations ensure maximum protection. All furniture must be wrapped protectively — an essential condition set by our insurer. Unsure about this? Your dedicated removal consultant at JHB Removals is always at the ready to provide a quote for protective wrapping. When it comes to the contents of boxes, insurance only applies if they’re packed by JHB Removals or our trusted partners. This costs R85 per box, which includes a packer, the box, and packaging material.

To streamline the process, our insurer necessitates a detailed inventory of items along with their respective values that you intend to insure. Do remember: our all risk insurance, although comprehensive, excludes any mechanical damage. It's always prudent to understand the nuances of your chosen insurance plan.
