    Default POD or waste bin on the road?

    So I am getting a pod to move all my mother in laws shit into a storage facility. And the city of Edmonton (where her house is) wants me to get a permit: https://www.edmonton.ca/business_eco...king-form.aspx

    However my question is they want insurance for this bin and TD already said they cant put a company or city as "additional insured" on the policy. Has anyone run into this before?

    Wouldn't this be covered under regular homeowners insurance?

    Apparently not because they wont list the city on a homeowners policy. When I talked to the city of edmonton they told me that I was using the right form however the insurance is actually the bin companies, the agent told me to just put some Bullshit in the form in order to submit it since they already had the companies insurance info on the form.

    Funny enough the first city of edmonton person was trying to tell me i can use a waste bin residential maintenance permit and I had to call roads about it - and I was like "uuh well this other permit says storage pod though...." and he replied "well you sound like you really want to go down that route.."

    Never heard of this. If it's on the street, you just need a permit from the city. If it's on your driveway, you do not need a permit.

    The pod should be insured by the company that owns it. It should also cover content insurance. Similarly, if you hire a mover and they damage your stuff in transit, they have insurance for it.

    What I'm saying is the POD company supplies the content insurance, not you.
