Insurance & Protection

Insurance and liability cover options can vary from mover to mover or at least the terminology can, although generally most offer the same option, just explained and sold differently, we have made it simple! Of course as always with insurance and liability covers the terms and conditions are important and as such are attached to your quotation. Richard Healey Removals Ltd are an experienced well established mover, we have given you this easy options guide and hope this will assist you in making the right choice for you!



Standard liability is where we extend ourliability to cover your goods while in our care, subject to limitations. Maximum single item/damage value £40, total loss cover up to £50k subject to declaration. This works well for clients who are covered through building & contents insurance, protecting your own policy against small minor claims at one end of the scale-and should their be a total overall loss following for example a Road traffic accident you are protected for total loss at the other end!


As a fully insured client, you will be able to submit any claim directly against the Insurer, whereas if you only have Standard Liability cover, your claim will have to be made against the mover, you'll also have the right of recourse to the Insurance Ombudsman if a dispute arises, The option of our Removals and Storage Insurance provides you with the peace of mind that your property will be fully protected throughout the entire moving process. Additional charges apply for this option


These days most clients although they may not realise are covered already under their own policy, we find more and more movers sticking with their own insurers as these policies are often suited to their specific requirements, and with a company they know and trust, and of course often already paid for!

Late key waiver & taking care of waiting time charges

No matter how well prepared you are on move day some things are out of both yours and our control, for instance not being able to gain access to your new property at the agreed completion time.

If your moving team is delayed due to access issues there will often be additional costs for you to consider often as much as £90+vat per hour with many other movers. Most other movers charge this “waiting time” charge from the moment the vehicle is loaded and ready to be emptied or after a specified time within your contract.

At Richard Healey Removals Ltd we only charge once the days done! And our charges are stated clearly within your quotation.

We undertake our moves with well trained experienced crews, taking account of your move needs, following your home survey we will allocate the correct crew for the job! They will work comfortably to have you cleared from your home within the time scale given avoiding charges from the new owners if your move goes over the exchange time.

What's more with our “Fixed rate moves” even when we encounter waiting time we will not charge any additional charges provided the move is completed to your satisfaction and within the fixed hours given such as 9-5pm, should we wait from 12-3pm these three hours will not be charged unless we go past 5pm, and even at that we will only charge you for the hours you use!

Be aware many other movers charge the 3hrs mid-day and you might still be completed by 5pm!! RHR offers a Late Key Waiver that will provide you with peace of mind if there is a delay in access to your new property, and we are required to work out with your fixed rate move times.

Healey's crew will be on site to complete the removal until 8pm or until the crew has used up its hours according to the Working Time Directive. Moving with RHR could save you anything up to a few hundred pounds if things don't go as planned on the day.
