2 . What Is Shipping Insurance?

Shipping insurance is one of the most important things you will have in your business or in your personal life. When you send an item, no matter what type of item it is or how much it is worth, there is going to be a period of time in which you do not have control over that item. During this time, your item might be lost, stolen, or damaged. There are cases in which shipped items show up broken, or in which shipped items never show up at all. Therefore, you should invest in shipping insurance to make sure that you get your money's worth to cover such occurrences.

Shipping insurance is money that you pay before the item is shipped. Just like insurance for health, life, or home, shipping insurance is provided by a company that will reimburse you for the item that is insured, if it is lost or damaged. You can pay shipping insurance when you send an item, and if that item does not arrive at its destination in the same condition that it left, you will be eligible to receive money for that item.

Shipping insurance is similar to the types of insurance with which you are most likely familiar; if you do not use your shipping insurance, you will not be able to get a refund. Shipping insurance works in the same way as regular insurance. The money that is collected through people buying the insurance is the money that is used to pay people in the event that their item is lost, stolen, or damaged. Therefore, you cannot get refunds for unused shipping insurance.

3 . Where Can You Find Shipping Insurance?

There are many places to find shipping insurance. The first place that you are going to want to look is with the company that is going to ship your item. This company is fully in charge of your item, and therefore will be responsible for paying you if your item is lost, damaged, or stolen. In fact, going through the shipping company makes the most sense because you know that the money will be a guarantee.

However, when you are going through the shipping company for your shipping insurance, you want to read the terms of the policy very closely. At times, there are some situations that the shipping company will deem out of their control, and therefore they might not pay out in these situations. Therefore, a close reading of the policy is imperative because you will know whether or not you need to purchase additional shipping insurance.

There are some situations in which you would want to purchase shipping insurance that is not provided by the shipping company. The first is the aforementioned situation in which the shipping company has stipulations on their shipping insurance. Having additional insurance provided by a third party might benefit you in this situation. Another case in which you would want additional shipping insurance would be in case your item(s) are worth more than the company will insure. For these policies, you want to seek out third party insurers who can provide you with the necessary insurance.

4 . Shipping Insurance For Moving

A specific case in which you will need shipping insurance is in moving insurance. When you are moving a home or a business to another location, everything in that home or business must be moved. Often, this is more work than you can do on your own. There are two types of moving insurance that you can purchase. One type helps you move yourself, and the other protects you when others are moving you.

In the first type of moving insurance, you will purchase a policy that will protect your items as you move them from one place to another. This is often a difficult type of policy to get, because most companies feel hesitant to provide it. The reason that they feel hesitant is that when people move themselves, they are in control of all their items, and may not pack them securely. However, there are companies that provide this type of moving insurance simply because they realize it is important. A person might need moving insurance if well-packed items fall off a truck and break, or if the car with all their items is stolen from a hotel parking lot. There are many instances in which you might want this type of moving insurance, so it is important that you find a company that can provide this for you.

The second type of moving insurance is more common because it is insurance on items that are being moved for you. This type of shipping insurance would be found through the company that is doing your moving. If you are packing your items and then using movers to take them to the new place, you are going to want to have shipping and moving insurance on them. These policies will work in several ways. If you have more items than you can inventory, you will want to purchase a flat rate moving insurance. This will cost you a flat rate, but will then pay out up to a flat rate. This is best if you are moving your entire household, because chances are that this flat rate policy will cover anything that might be damaged.

However, if you are moving several large, expensive, or rare items, you might want to opt for itemized moving insurance. This is moving insurance that is tailored to your needs. You will have to describe each item that you would like insured, and then pay for separate insurance on these particular items. This is the best course of action for someone moving a small amount of things, or moving things that are exceptionally expensive or rare.
