Package Insurance for High Value Items

When it comes to shipping valuables such as jewelry, electronics, expensive equipment, antiques, rare coins, or even musical instruments, finding a reliable shipping company that offers package insurance for high-value items is crucial. This insurance should cover the full cost of the items, protecting them from the risk of damage or loss during transit.

It is of utmost importance to ensure the safety of these valuable items from the point of origin to the recipient's hands. There are numerous shipping companies and insurance policies available, but it is essential to choose wisely before entrusting your valuables to anyone.

Unival Logistics is a trusted name in this field. With years of experience handling high-value parcel shipments and providing insurance solutions at competitive prices, we have become the go-to for many customers. Our headquarters are in Los Angeles, in the heart of the jewelry district. We extend our shipping services to customers all across the United States and even handle international shipments.

Private Shipping Insurance

We offer private shipping insurance, an attractive business option due to our competitive insurance rates. The process of getting our insurance coverage is straightforward. Create a new account, provide your shipping details, and select a suitable payment method. Then, provide information about your valuable items and choose an insurance policy that matches the value of your goods.

Is Shipping Insurance Worth It?

The answer is a resounding yes. If the items being shipped are valuable to both you and the recipient, it is necessary to ensure that they are covered. All carriers strive to be reliable and prevent parcels from being lost, damaged, or stolen, but in reality, this is not always possible.

Human error, crime, bad weather, or even natural hazards can put your packages at risk. Package insurance for high-value items minimizes these costs by saving you from paying out-of-pocket for issues that occur during transit.

What About the Automatic Insurance Most Carriers Provide?

Many carriers offer automatic insurance or declared value coverage, which is typically insufficient for high-value goods. The usual insurance limit of these policies is around $100. If you are shipping items valued at less than this, then automatic coverage may suffice. However, for expensive items or high-value cargoes, third-party insurance is a better option.

While most carriers allow you to increase your insurance limit, it often does not cover the true value of luxury items, and the shipping price rises significantly. Their claims processes are often complicated and time-consuming.

Also, the amount you are reimbursed is at the carrier's discretion - they get to decide whether insurance will cover the replacement or repair cost, or the depreciated value. With our private insurance, you are guaranteed to be reimbursed for the full value of your packages.

A Simple Claims Process

A claims process is a procedure that customers follow when they believe they have suffered a loss or damage that should be covered by insurance. It involves notifying the insurance carrier, filling out forms, providing necessary documentation, and awaiting a decision on whether the claim will be paid.

However, our claims process is significantly simpler than many insurance carriers, often requiring you to prove fault and liability. This can be a time-consuming and difficult task that can extend the duration of the claims process considerably.

With Unival Logistics, all you need to do is provide evidence that a package was lost or damaged. We recognize the importance of resolving claims quickly and efficiently. We understand that when a loss occurs, it can be stressful and upsetting.

That's why we work diligently towards providing a speedy resolution to all claims, helping our customers to move forward as soon as possible. We aim to make the claims process as easy and stress-free as possible for our valued customers.

How Much Does Package Insurance Cost?

High-quality services do not necessarily equate to high prices. We pride ourselves on offering affordable shipping solutions that cater to all of our clients. Our insurance policies cover valuables of up to $150,000 at fair rates. We offer overnight delivery services at a reasonable commercial price, and we cater to clients all over the United States.

What Additional Services Do I Receive?

When you insure your valuables with us, you can access a range of additional services designed to enhance your peace of mind and streamline your operations. One of these is our real-time tracking of parcels.

This feature allows you to monitor the exact location of your parcel at every stage of the journey, from when it leaves your hands to when it reaches its final destination. This advanced tracking mechanism provides an extra layer of security and assurance, giving you confidence that your goods are always under watchful supervision.

In the rare event that a parcel is lost or misplaced, we have developed a transparent claims process. We understand how stressful such situations can be, and we aim to resolve them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our package tracking system plays a critical role in this, providing valuable data to help locate the missing parcel or understand where the process went wrong. This information is then used to speed up the resolution, ensuring you receive compensation swiftly and fairly.

For businesses with websites, we offer API integration. This is particularly beneficial for companies that ship and track large volumes of parcels. The API integration links your website directly with ours, allowing for real-time updates on parcel status.

At Unival Logistics, we aim to provide user-friendly services that offer peace of mind to our customers. Our priority is to ensure the safety and security of your valuable items during shipping. Sign up here to purchase parcel insurance and begin shipping your valued items with confidence.
