Shipping Insurance in Greenville TX & Royse City TX

When a product leaves your business and is loaded onto a mail truck, what happens next is out of your hands—but in many cases, customers still hold you liable for ensuring that their package arrives safely.

Fortunately, shipping insurance is available to fill this coverage gap and protect you when something goes wrong.

What's Covered

This form of insurance will reimburse you if a package is stolen, lost, or damaged on the way to its destination. For anyone looking to send a package, the two major considerations are as follows:

  • Is it already protected? Many packages are already insured by shipping companies—often automatically. However, coverage is not universal and depends both on who carries the package and what type of mail it is. In particular, shippers should familiarize themselves with the regulations of the USPS, whether or not they plan to use it—both FedEx and UPS frequently utilize the Last Mile service, and knowing who is responsible for the package helps ensure that it's fully covered at all times.
  • How much is it worth? Most forms of shipping insurance have a relatively low cap on what they'll pay out (typically several thousand dollars, sometimes as low as one hundred). If you're sending items worth more than the cap, you may still suffer a loss if something happens to the package, and will want to purchase additional coverage. If you do not properly declare the value of the package when it's being sent, you'll be liable for any losses beyond the standard limit.

Domestic Shipping Insurance

Domestic coverage for shipping is often available for as low as a few dollars per-parcel. If you're planning to ship anything that goes above and beyond the protection that carriers normally provide, talk to a Get A Policy Insurance Services agents about how many packages you'll be shipping, and they'll work with you to find a rate that matches what you're doing.

International Shipping Insurance

Shipments being mailed internationally are often more expensive to insure, especially if they'll be passing through the hands of a local carrier with a poor reputation. Since fees can vary so widely, based on a combination of factors, it's usually best to get a quote well before you send the package. Tools like the USPS International Price Calculator can be used to get a quick estimate of postage and basic insurance coverage for any given package.

After 19 years of being with State Farm they decide to raise my rate 18% and I thought that was ridiculous. I turned to www.getapolicy.com and they insured my home for $308.00 less than I was paying with State Farm before my renewal. Gotta Love That! Special Thanks To Get A Policy.

When I was told this month that I was being forced to buy flood insurance…. even though I am nowhere near flooding creeks, lakes, etc…. I was not real happy about that. I called www.getapolicy.com and they made it so easy to understand and my premium was much lower than anticipated. Thanks Again

Thanks for saving our family $36.00 a month on our auto and renters insurance. We can use the extra money.

I just wanted to let you know that the major repairs to my house have been completed. I had to talk to my inside property loss specialist several times because the final invoices and the proposals were not matching. Also more work and money needed. After 3 checks – all invoices were paid in full. I was expecting a huge hassle to recover the money but much to my surprise Safeco was very easy to deal with. A big Thank You to you as well. I can breath easier now. Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to take a moment and THANK YOU again for PROACTIVELY going into my policy to look for discounts before we renewed. You saved us almost $100.00 a month and that is a lot for a family with 5 cars and 3 kids in College. We sure do appreciate how you take care of us with this personal touch.
