Always Remember To Do The Following

Do’s ship canada

  • Package shipments properly using as much material (at least 2” of bubble wrap, use styrofoam to cover entire product, etc.) to protect the product
  • Advise consignee to hold damaged shipment in its original packaging once a claim is submitted
  • When purchasing eShipper Insurance: declared value MUST be the selling Price (Sales Invoice) of the product (s)

Don’ts shipping carriers

  • Do not use old/reused boxes to ship out products (carriers will deny claim as this is considered “improper packaging”)
  • Do not move shipment (shipment needs to stay at the location until carrier completes damage inspection)
  • Do not throw away damaged product and/or packaging
  • Do not over Insure or under insure the declared value of the product(s).
  • Most common reasons why claims get denied:
    • Improper Packaging
    • Shipper’s Risk items (Glass, liquid, food, perishables, TV’s)
  • Insurer will not cover shipments/products containing the following: bills, currency, cellphones/cellular devices, deeds, evidence of debt, furs, original/fine art, money, notes, securities, perishable cargo (food, live plants - coral reefs, etc., live animals - fish, reptiles, etc.), unless endorsed in writing.
