Step 1: COI Request

Buildings that require a COI will have a sample document which outlines what they require. This document includes the exact wording for the 'Additional Insured' area as well as the name and contact information of the primary building contact.

Be sure to verify the details on the sample COI before submitting it to us. Any changes requested after the COI has been issued are subject to additional fees.

Step 2: Sufficient Notice

COI requests must be processed by the insurance company before being sent to your building, this process can take time. To ensure we have ample time to accommodate your request before your move date, we require a minimum of five (5) business days notice. If sufficient notice cannot be provided, we will make every attempt to complete the request but we cannot guarantee that your building will receive the COI before your move date.

Step 3: Cost

Insurance companies assess a fee to name an 'Additional Insured' on the policy. The fee for this request varies by location and is assessed per additional insured. To determine the fee for an 'Additional Insured' COI request in your area please contact Customer Support at (888) 354-8303.

A fee is only required to name an 'Additional Insured' on the policy. Customer that have a booked move and do not require an additional insured inclusion may request a certificate of insurance prior to their scheduled moving date at no additional cost.
