When the insurance claim is filed with two insurance providers, this situation is called” double dipping” and it is illegal. That is in the scenario that a customer has purchased an insurance policy for their items from a 3rd party insurance provider prior to their moving, and file a claim for the same item/s for damages, both through their moving company and 3rd party insurance provider.

    • If the item/s has had a double claim for damages the 3rd party insurance provider will contact Tip-Top Moving requesting a damages fee for the item/s in which case Tip-Top Moving has already provided to the customer with a damages fee via basic valuation/DOT insurance. In such examples Tip-Top Moving will disclose evidence to the 3rd Party Insurance provider of ‘double dipping”. If the customer has double filed the customer agrees to acknowledge to each respective party Tip-Top Moving and the customers 3rd party insurance provider that they have double filed so that their claim can be closed by both parties. To avoid committing a felony the customer is to cancel the claim with one of two parties before the claim was processed and any compensation was provided by either party.
