Why consider third party insurance?

Secursus saves you up to 40% and protects all your valuable goods up to £90,000 per parcel.

If you are looking for third party insurance, you probably already noticed that UPS insurance is very expensive and does not cover certain types of items prone to theft. Moreover, the list of excluded goods is very long.

On the other hand, Secursus is an online insurance insuring 99% of goods sold on the internet, even the riskiest : watches, jewelleries, phones, laptops, second-hand items, luxury goods etc. We offer a coverage up to 100,000€. This coverage includes full reimbursement of the value of your product in the event of loss or theft. If your item is damaged in transit, our insurance will pay for the repair value if your item can be repaired. If it cannot be fixed, you will receive full compensation. Insuring with us also means that you will not need to disclose the actual value of your package to UPS (except for customs purposes when mandatory). This means that the delivery staff at UPS will not be able to tell if there is a valuable item or product inside your package.

Claim management

As an online insurance company we have a dedicated team to help you in case of any problem or need of complementary information. Our team will help you with your insurance claim so you get compensated for your lost or damaged goods.

By the way, if something goes wrong during transit : if you notice any delay, or any problem with your parcel, please feel free to open a claim within 14 days of shipping date. This way you will be sure to be still covered by Secursus in case of a problem.


Our coverage includes all high-risk items that are excluded or limited by DHL such as watches, jewelleries, art works, high tech devices, second-hand items and collectibles as well as standard items.


Our goal is to inform our customers of the shipping instructions that apply to the insurance policy. Before shipping your parcel, please take a look at our instructions and contact our team if you need any help.
