Welcome to Portcullis – Removals Insurance for Military Personnel


Portcullis provides specialist insurance cover for goods belonging to British military personnel moving within the United Kingdom, to overseas or returning home.


Cover can be provided for your goods while in transit and storage where your move is carried out by a professional removal company. Cover commences from the time your goods are packed, collected or otherwise made ready for removal or storage, and ceases when the goods are delivered at their final destination.


Benefits of Portcullis insurance


  • “New for Old“ cover. Your goods will be protected on a replacement-as-new basis, except household linen and clothing, where the insurers will allow for age and condition when considering any claim.

  • A low policy excess. The policy excess is £150 for any single claim.

  • “All Risks” protection. Cover is provided on an “All Risks” basis, subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions detailed on the policy documents.

  • Cover for owner packed items. Cover is also provided where you pack, but cover is restricted to exclude damage which is likely to have occurred due to the quality of packing.
