IVL offers marine insurance for all shipment types. We offer All Risk Marine Insurance as well as Total Loss Marine Insurance.
All Risk Marine Insurance is available to customers that have their goods professionally packed. This fully covers any loss or damage to your entire shipment.
Total Loss Marine Insurance is available to customers who choose to self-pack their goods. Insurance companies will not issue All Risk insurance for household goods that are packed by the owner. The entire shipment must be a loss in order to make an insurance claim.
In either case, you must prepare a “Declared Value” inventory. This is a list of all the items you wish to insure stating the replacement value of each item. This inventory has nothing to do with your inventory for customs declaration or for the items you are shipping. It is only for insurance purposes. Remember to state a replacement value for your items that is valid in the destination country. In many countries you will find the cost of your goods, due to import cost, can be much higher than their original cost in the U.S. It is very important that your documentation is accurate in order to avoid complications or delay in settlement.
Please print out the Insurance Form that applies to you, complete the form with a pen, sign and return to your IVL Sales Representative by mail or fax to (954) 337-0731.

Check out our international moving services..
International Van Lines originally started as an international moving company licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission. In 2007 we decided to try our hand at domestic moving simply because of the volume of requests. We quickly rose to the occasion and became one of INC500’s fastest-growing companies in the country.
Today International Van Lines employs over 200 people and has locations nationwide with an extended reach. Several third-party consumer groups such as Forbes, US News, and Newsweek rate IVL the number one national moving company in the country.
We’ve made our process very simple. Instead of going the traditional route of sending someone to your home for an estimate, we offer a virtual tour option. IVL created software called MoveOne, which allows you to perform a complete walk-through of your house directly from your cell phone. Once the video is submitted, your client specialist will create a complete inventory list.
The turnaround time for a moving quote can be instant or up to one hour, depending on how large your home is. All customers will have the option to self-pack request full packing and storage if needed. All furniture will be wrapped, padded, disassembled, and assembled at the destination. Feel free to request special services such as cleaning services if required.
