Why should you need an independent insurance?

Secursus saves you up to 70% and insures all your valuable items up to £90,000 per parcel.

If you've found us, you’re probably aware that most carriers’ insurances are very expensive and don’t cover anything of great value or that are prone to thieves. Secursus will insure everything carriers don’t : watches, jewellery, high tech, vintage/collector items, mobile phones etc.

Insuring with us also means that you won't need to disclose the actual value of your parcel to the carrier (except for customs purposes). Parcel handlers won't be able to tell if anything valuable is inside your parcel. If something goes wrong during transit, our team will assist you during the claims process and help you get compensation as quickly as possible.

Claim management

Secursus has dedicated agents whose sole objective is to help you with your claim. Most claims are paid within 30 days from the time the carrier provides a certificate of loss / damage.


Our insurance coverage goes up to £ 90,000 and covers many items excluded from the DHL insurance policy including watches, high tech devices and used items.


Once you have insured a parcel with us, you will receive an email including our shipping instructions and what to do if something goes wrong during transit.
