Should anything to your shipment while in transit – if it’s lost, stolen, damaged, or if anything happens to the carrier – you want to be covered.
You can include cargo insurance in your quote by ticking the insurance box.
Insurance is based on the value of your goods, so once you opt in, you’ll be prompted to enter the value of your shipment. Your quotes will then include that cost.
The standard cost is between 0.3-0.5% of the value of your goods, starting at a minimum of about $50.
Note: Insurance is only valid for certain goods – for example, it wouldn’t cover hazardous cargo.
