Always Remember To Do The Following

Keep these instructions in mind when making your claim.

Do’s

  • Package shipments properly using as much material (at least 2” of bubble wrap, use styrofoam to cover the 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

  • 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:

      1. Improper Packaging
      2. Shipper’s Risk items Glass, China, Crystal, Porcelain, Figurines, Pottery/Ceramics, Precious metals, Liquids, Food, Perishables, Live Animals, Live Plants, TV’s, Original/Fine Art, Antiques, Personal Effect, Household Goods, Hazardous/Dangerous Goods, Shipments prohibited by law (see carriers Terms & Conditions)

  • 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.

Important Note For LTL Damage Claims

    • For visible damages on pallet(s) – “Damage” MUST be noted/checked off on the POD (Proof of Delivery) on the day of delivery. If it is not noted on the POD the carrier will not approve the claim.
  • For concealed damages (no noticeable damages on outer packaging) – It MUST be reported to us ASAP as the carrier must be notified within 24 HOURS from delivery date.
