Why Do I need Shipping Insurance?

Did you know that standard insurance provided by a freight forwarder or carrier such as Royal Mail, TNT or UPS may not fully cover the value of your goods?

If you need to fully cover the value of the goods you are sending or receiving whilst they are in transportation, a separate Shipping Insurance policy is highly recommended. Obtaining adequate postal insurance cover protects your goods in transit both in the UK and worldwide.

Shipping goods or belongings in the UK or overseas comes with an element of risk. Shipments can become lost or damaged, leaving you facing substantial costs to replace or repair your goods. Contrary to widespread belief, it’s actually your responsibility, not the carrier, to insure the products being shipped.

The couriers’ liability insurance can often impose significant limitations on the compensation available to the customer. In some cases this can be limited to just £1.30 per kilogram!

By obtaining shipping insurance you can be confident that have full cover value on your goods in transit.

Who Needs Shipping Insurance?

In short, anyone transporting goods in the UK or overseas needs shipping insurance coverage. This can range from businesses shipping products to foreign customers, buying goods from abroad that need to be shipped back to the UK and even families who are starting a new life overseas and need their personal belongings, furniture and vehicles transporting to their new destination.

Despite the common misconception, your carrier won’t compensate you for the full value of your goods or belongings in the event of damage. Shipping companies are only liable to pay you a sum up to the amount specified in their trading conditions – a figure that may be as low as £1,300 per tonne.

What’s more, without shipping insurance you may be liable for the damage or loss of other people’s goods thanks to General Average – which requires customers whose cargo survives an international voyage to compensate anyone whose cargo was abandoned to protect the cargo vessel.

Unless you’re happy to risk paying thousands of pounds for the damage or loss of your own (or someone else’s!) shipments, with the prospect of only a few pounds per kilo in compensation, you will need cargo insurance coverage.
