Don’t Let Your Precious Parcels Become Damaged Dreams: 4 Essential Tips for Courier Parcel Insurance

Shipping can be a nerve-wracking experience, especially for small businesses sending high-value or fragile items. While you can’t control what happens after your package leaves your office, you can control how well it’s protected. This is where courier parcel insurance becomes your knight in shining armor. But navigating insurance options and fine print can feel overwhelming. Fear not! FlagShip is here to guide you through the process with these 4 essential tips to choosing the right parcel insurance for your small business shipping needs:

  1. Price it Right: Compare Costs & Coverage: Make sure to compare shipping rates and the additional insurance coverage. Courier insurance rates for goods valued over $100 can get expensive so it is best to compare beforehand. At FlagShip, just like our shipping rates, our courier parcel insurance rates are one of the lowest in the industry at $1.25/$100* for standard insurance.
  2. Premium Protection for Precious Parcels: Even if you ship high-value, luxury commodities such as jewelry, coins, watches or collectibles, FlagShip can provide you with the right coverage to protect your shipments. Our premium insurance gives you industry-best coverage at a great rate for all your shipping needs, including courier, logistics freight, and eCommerce shipments.
  3. A Smooth Claims Process: No More Post-Loss Paperwork Dilemmas: Look into your courier’s claims process because there is nothing worst than a damaged or lost shipment than the never-ending claims process that follows. With FlagShip, simply file the claim on our shipping system, once received our customer service team will take care of the rest!
  4. Know What’s Covered: Read the Fine Print: Make sure to read the fine print of what kind of goods can be insured with the courier insurance program. You don’t want to be insuring your glass vase shipment if the courier does not insure glass products. For a copy of FlagShip’s terms and conditions, click here.
