In NYC it’s common for buildings to require a certificate of insurance or COI. Most buildings with a doorman, hi rise buildings, CO-Ops, and buildings with service elevators frequently require a COI. They WILL NOT LET US ENTER THE BUILDING until the document is provided. If our crew arrives for a scheduled move and must wait around for the building management, moving company and insurer to process the certificate, you will be billed for that time.
What is a COI?
A COI is simply a document which shows that we hold a general liability insurance policy. It is unique to each building which requires one, specifying the address of the building, management company, tenant and other parties.
What do I need to do about the COI?
Ask your building management whether they require a COI - ask at least several days before your scheduled move.
Don’t forget to check with both buildings.
Ask your management company for the following information:
Who should be listed as the "Certificate Holder"? What address should be listed for the "Certificate Holder"? Who should be listed as "Additionally Insured"? Does the building need to see proof of Workers Compensation?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you the form. Be sure to fill out the form at least 2 business days before your move.
If your building requires a COI, you must fill out the COI form. If for some reason you are unable to fill out the form but need a COI let us know. There is a $20 processing fee if we must fill out the COI form or if you fill out the form incorrectly and it is not accepted by the building.
