Our opinion on the insurance

DPD insurance has numerous exclusions and insurance amounts are very limited as well. Some particular items are subject to "special provisions" with a maximum parcel protection value: Apple MacBook for example. Moreover, shipping a parcel weighing more than 20kg with DPD is not possible.

Furthemore, the list of DPD prohibited items and products is quite extensive and there are exclusions such as cameras, art, paintings, antiques etc.

Why should you use additional insurance for your DPD parcels ?

Secursus details its conditions very clearly and thus guarantees a refund without unpleasant surprises. The Secursus list of exclusions is minimal compared to DPD insurance.

In addition to reimbursing all items usually excluded from insurance (artworks, luxury items, watches…), Secursus will accompany you throughout the delivery of your parcel and guide you in case of any problems. Our team will list and validate the required documents with you and then follow up on your claim with the insurer to ensure that you receive compensation quickly.

You can also insure your shipment for its real value and up to 90,000£. Secursus reimburses all your objects at their last sale value, without any discount!
