Welcome to the ezimove.com "e-manual".

Simple instructions on how to select and process moving insurance for clients can be found below, under Getting a Quote but if you have any queries, please contact us at info@ezimove.com
 

Overview

ezimove.com is an insurance Underwriter which provides simple and cost effective insurance online 24/7, with the consent of insurer Vero Insurance NZ Ltd, for people and businesses moving furniture, personal effects, general cargo and other goods, anywhere within New Zealand, and overseas provided that NZ or island nations of the South Pacific are the source or destination of transits.

Quoting and policy issue is processed online instantly 24/7. No paperwork to complete, although for Transit International Household Goods, an online "valuation list and proposal" will need to be completed prior to policy issue. It can be worthwhile helping your customers to process this insurance because premiums for international household removals are not cheap. This is because of the distances shipped and goods having greater exposure to insured risks. Higher premiums equal higher commissions payable.

In the event of a claim, if the transit was within NZ or goods have arrived damaged in NZ from overseas, a toll free number is provided for customers to contact Vero.

We have a range of insurances to cover almost every shipping insurance requirement, but if you come across an item that is excluded, individual consideration will be given on application to info@ezimove.com

 

Ten reasons to use ezimove


1. Service guarantee

If loss or damage occurs in transit and your claim is accepted, we will tell you how the claim is to be settled within 5 working days of receiving all the documentation requested by us, or no excess shall be payable.

2. Price

You could save up to 30% or more on insurance costs simply by insuring with ezimove. Our household goods in transit policies provide free mechanical and electrical derangement cover, and do not include a "pairs and sets "clause. Other providers of household removal insurance typically charge between 10% and 20% more for these two "extras".

Insurance when moving house or for shipping other goods in transit can be expensive, but at ezimove, we have cut that cost without compromising on quality or service.

Ask your carrier to split costs between removal and insurance, then compare with us. Remember, you do not have to take the insurance offered by carriers.

3. No hidden fees

No hidden fees or extra charges are included in our quotes.

Many carriers and other intermediaries charge additional fees on top of the true insurance premium, which is often not disclosed. At ezimove, we have nothing to hide. What you see is the true insurance cost and not a padded version.

4. Credible

Policies issued by ezimove are insured by Vero Insurance New Zealand Ltd, which is the largest insurer of goods in transit in New Zealand.

Families moving house or businesses involved with international exports or imports, shipping by sea, air, road or rail freight, can rest assured that ezimove's partnership with Vero Insurance means that valid claims will be paid promptly. Click here to view Vero's financial strength rating.

5. Fast

It takes only a few minutes from quote to policy issue. You “drive” the quote with policy issued on-line the instant payment is made.

Many people are "time poor", and when they want something they want it now. Through ezimove, moving insurance is available 24/7, and you can issue your own policy instantly.

6. Secure

128 bit encryption payment gateway using the DPS secure site. Premiums can be paid by Visa, Mastercard or Direct Credit. It couldn't be simpler or safer.

7. Simple

ezimove's plain English policy wording with comprehensive cover is second to none. Our single transit policies are only two pages long, yet provide comprehensive cover tailored for the risk. For example, with household goods in transit moving within New Zealand or internationally, no “pairs and sets” clause applies which is commonly included by competitors. Not having a "pairs and sets" clause significantly enhances the cover offered by ezimove. We also provide free mechanical and electrical breakdown cover on household goods in transit, within NZ and worldwide.

8. Worldwide

ezimove can insure almost anything in transit (some limitations apply) within New Zealand, between island nations of the South Pacific, and anywhere in the world, provided that NZ or the South Pacific Islands are the source or destination of goods in transit.

Families moving house within New Zealand, from NZ to Australia, or moving to any other country in the world can use ezimove. Likewise, coming from Australia, the UK, or any other country to NZ is not a problem.

Anyone moving household goods and personal effects, importing or exporting vehicles, caravans, motorcycles, boats, fresh chilled or frozen product, or general cargo, by sea, air, road or rail will find the ezimove website easy to navigate.

9. Easy to claim

Just dial a toll free number to lodge a claim and Vero Marine will advise what further steps are required. For claims offshore, claims are driven from the ezimove website. You select the claims settling agent depending on the country of domicile.

Losing a shipment in transit can be expensive and your customers need things fixed as soon as possible. You need quick action on claims, but you don't want to waste a lot of time sorting insurance. So avoid the hassle that often accompanies insurance claims by using ezimove for all your transit insurance requirements.

10. Paperwork minimised

No proposal is required for any transit within New Zealand. Only household goods moving internationally require a "valuation list and proposal", which is completed online. We also provide a checklist when moving house which users may find useful.

For vehicles, a pre-shipment condition report is not essential but we recommend vehicles be inspected prior to shipment. It will reduce the excess for vehicles over a certain value.

No paperwork is involved for any transit in New Zealand, nor for Transit International policies where motorcycles, personal watercraft or boats and boat trailers are selected to be insured. For vehicles or caravans in transit outside of New Zealand, we recommend that a "pre-shipment condition report" be completed because the policy excess is reduced, although the form is not essential.

For individuals and families moving from or to New Zealand with household goods and personal effects in transit, a "valuation list and proposal" must be completed online. We recommend that your clients complete this themselves, by entering the ezimove.com website via your website, so that sales are tracked and recorded to your account.

Alternatively, you can email the "valuation list and proposal" or the link to your customer to complete and return for you to action. If you complete the online form from that supplied by your customer, you take the responsibility for loading the information correctly online. Your customer will receive a copy of the online "valuation list and proposal" as part of the policy documentation once issued.

 

Moving household goods/other cargo within NZ


Move NZ (PDF of policy)

If you are moving household goods and personal effects anywhere within New Zealand, this is the policy that will be issued online. There are two insurance options available, but option 1 - full cover, is strongly recommended because it has a much wider scope of cover than the more restrictive option 2. Where goods are not professionally moved or coming out of a storage facility, cover is restricted to option 2.

Mechanical and electrical breakdown is automatically insured for free, and there is no "pairs and sets" exclusion clause. Other providers of moving insurance usually add 10% to 20% on base premiums to delete the "pairs and sets" exclusion and include mechanical and electrical breakdown cover.

By not having a "Pairs and sets" exclusion in the policy, it means that if for example a 3 piece lounge suite is shipped and one chair is damaged needing recovering, then the policy will pay to have all 3 items of the suite recovered if the same material cannot be sourced to repair the damaged item.

Vehicles, boats, boat trailers, motor cycles, caravans, personal watercraft, aircraft or helicopters are not insured under this policy. These would normally be insured under standard policies available with any one of a number of insurance companies operating in New Zealand. However, the insurance of such items will be considered in certain circumstances and on application to info@ezimove.com
