Shipping Insurance: Tips for Limiting Your Shipping Risks

Posted by Tania

We cannot stress enough the significance of shipping insurance to limit your shipping risk.  This includes a peace of mind, limited liability to the cost of damaged (lost or stolen) goods, ease of adding insurance, and getting reimbursed for damaged (lost or stolen) shipments.

The good news is that shipments valued less than $100 are typically insured by most couriers. Even better, FlagShip offers additional insurance coverage to insure shipments valued over $100. Like our shipping rates, our insurance program rates are one of the lowest in the industry.

Accidents happen, you cannot prevent theft or damages when a shipment is in transit but here are some tips for an extra reassurance that is under your control:

·         Pack your shipment carefully to protect your goods during transport

·         Provide a complete and precise delivery address to prevent delays or lost shipments

·         Provide a detailed description and accurate value of the goods being sent. In the event that a shipment is lost or damaged, claim processes can be smoother if documentation is clear

·         Purchase additional insurance for high-valued shipments

FlagShip customers enjoy the benefits of low insurance rates as well as full customer service where we are more than happy to help with the entire claims process if needed.
