When should you consider a third party shipping insurance?

Are you wondering when to take out shipping insurance? Are you sending a valuable package and wondering if you can benefit from our insurance? Here are some clarifications!

When you ship a parcel, the shipping insurance is not mandatory. If you do not purchase the insurance, you’ll probably receive a basic $20 compensation from the carrier or from the shipping broker. That’s why it is strongly recommended that you take out insurance if your items are worth more than $100.

When taking out a shipping insurance, you can choose to purchase the insurance offered by your carrier / broker and pay a very high fees for insurance which may even not cover the items you're looking to insure. Using Secursus gives you peace of mind when shipping an expensive item.

What’s a shipping insurance?

Shipping insurance is used to insure goods in transit up to their final retail value. If your items end up being stolen, lost or damaged during shipping, you’ll receive a full compensation, without any deductible or depreciation.

What happens if my shipment is not insured?

Be aware that when you send a parcel internationally and it gets lost, stolen or damaged, the carrier's liability is limited. This means that you will only be partially reimbursed, even if you can demonstrate the carrier's liability.

When a carrier accepts responsibility, the compensation is usually very low if you have not purchased an additional shipping insurance. You can expect $20 to $50 from the carrier at the very best.


Used this company for insurance on a shipment coming from China on the offchance of any issues. Very glad I did - the claim was handled extremely well - they took ownership and the claim was settled within a reasonable timeframe. Delighted.

Better coverage / better price

The goods I send are not covered by the traditional insurances. For me, Secursus is the only way to ship safely. And even if the goods you’re sending are covered (or you think they are), Secursus is always a better solution since it’s less expensive !

Shipping essential

I used Secursus insurance cover for several deliveries mainly International (the insurance provided by the shipping company would actually not cover the type of items I sold). The subscription is really easy and fast, the cost is attractive and the delivery tips are very useful. I strongly recommend if you want to get your items insured during shipping!

Frequently asked questions

What’s the real benefit to use Secursus shipping insurance?

Secursus insures your shipments instantly, at a lower rate than carriers or shipping agents. There is no need to request a quote as the price is the same for everyone who uses our service, just use our insurance calculator and see how much it will cost you to insure your valuable goods during transit.

How to calculate the cost of our shipping insurance?

To find out the pricing of our carrier insurance, all you have to do is enter the value of the shipment you want to insure at the top of the page. Our calculator instantly displays the price of the insurance.

Our site tells you how much to pay when you fill in the value of your merchandise. The cost of our insurance does not vary depending on whether you send 1, 10 or 50 parcels. Also, the cost of the shipping insurance remains the same, whether you send your parcels within the UK or internationally.

Do I necessarily have to choose a carrier that offers signed-for deliveries?

Yes, the delivery of the parcel with signature is mandatory because without a signature, we have no proof that a parcel has been delivered or not. This is a necessary condition for sending valuable parcels. Just make sure you choose the right shipping method when booking your shipment online.

Lost, stolen or damaged package? How does Secursus handle claims?

We know that losing a package or receiving a damaged package is a significant source of stress, which is why our claim procedure has been greatly simplified. Our claim platform enables you to submit the few necessary documents and chat with one of our agents. Once the documents submitted, we’ll process them within 7 working days and pay out your claim straight away.

How to send fragile items and still be fully covered by Secursus?

Secursus covers most fragile items but they must be well packaged to withstand normal handling in transit. You may not know it, but the parcels travel on automatic belts and fall into a huge box where many packages are stacked on top of each other. You need to make sure that your items can withstand a drop from about a meter without being broken. Otherwise, it just means that your items cannot be shipped with a regular carrier but with a "white glove" carrier who knows how to handle fragile goods.

Which scenarios are covered by secursus insurance? Are there excluded scenarios?

The insurance covers the liability of the carrier including:

• Loss of shipment
• Damage of the shipped items
• Theft occurred within the carrier's network

The insurance does not cover:

• Theft that occurs before shipment, or after the shipment being delivered
• Badly packaged items
• Cosmetic damage such as scratches, scuffs, deformations
