Quick Tips

Tip #14 – Don't just insure the value of the goods

When insuring your freight, you are fully entitled to value your goods at a price above the base cost. Valuation of goods may include all freight charges, related costs, plus 10% (or more) to cover the administrative burden of processing a claim and to cover the insured's profit. Since duty is still payable on damaged goods, make sure you insure the amount of duty as well.
