- Peace of mind – Your financial and domestic security is at risk if you have no insurance
- Handling damage – a risk every time furniture is moved, irrespective of the removal company
- Storm damage, including flooding
- Riot and strike action
- Theft by forced entry
- Warehouse theft
- Fire in vehicle
