"In the British market, reputable removal firms will typically offer 'goods in transit' insurance which covers your possessions whilst they are being moved by the company. Coverage amounts can vary, but it is usually in the range of £100-£200 per item.
It's important to check with the company regarding the coverage amount and exclusions and also consider getting additional coverage or third-party insurance to ensure comprehensive protection of your items.
It's worth noting that professional removal companies typically have insurance, unlike 'man and van' services which may not have the necessary coverage."
