Certificate of Insurance

COI Moving

What is a Certificate of Insurance (COI) and why do you need it? 

A Certificate of Insurance (COI) is an official document that serves as proof that a moving company is fully licensed and insured.

Property management often requires a Certificate of Insurance from moving companies to ensure that the company you hired is fully covered to legally protect their buildings from accidental damage that may occur during the move.

Subsequently, when you are planning to move into a new apartment, whether it’s an apartment building or a condo, you may require a Certificate of Insurance. A Certificate of Insurance should be submitted by your moving company while finalizing your relocation plan.


Obtain a COI in a few simple steps:


  • The first thing you need to do is to contact both your move-out and move-in building managements to confirm if they require a Certificate of Insurance for moving. Ask for a template and if there are any other requirements.

  • Next, you will need to hand all the information you have acquired to your COI moving company to authorize them to prepare the insurance paperwork for your move. Any reputable moving company will have no problem providing a COI for you.

  • If a moving company cannot provide a COI for you, it is most likely that they won't even be permitted to enter the premises of requesting buildings. To avoid this kind of complication, it is better to ensure that the moving company you choose possesses a Certificate of Insurance before you even hire them. This way, you will be guaranteed that your movers are indeed fully insured and own moving company insurance specifically for the apartment buildings you are moving out of and into.
