Same Day Delivery Insurance
Sending important documents and other items across the city or state can feel scary, especially if you know of any incidents of missing parcels or shattered presents on arrival. This is why it’s important to choose a courier service you trust, especially if you hope for speedy, same-day delivery. In addition, you will need same day delivery insurance.
When it comes to choosing a same-day delivery courier, there are many factors that come into play, from professionalism to insurance to tracking. Generally, the best delivery services have full insurance. This means that they’re fully protected from accidents, theft, damage, and anything else that could go wrong in the rush to deliver a package on the same day.
What Same Day Delivery Insurance Offers
To offer same-day delivery services, you need extended liability on the basic courier services. Some of the things to keep in mind include:
- The circumstances under which the carrier or its agents become liable
- The risk of guaranteeing collection and delivery dates
- Choosing the appropriate level of cover
- How late a delivery can be from its suggested arrival date before liability is established
- The suitability of the packaging – in terms of protecting and securing the items
- Any items that are generally prohibited from same-day delivery
- The window that clients have for making claims for loss, damage, theft, or other reasons
Generally, insurance cover for shipment services contains several coverage exclusions, including loss, damage, or expense caused by:
- Unsuitable or insufficient packaging, or preparation of the shipment
- Normal wear and tear, leakage, or loss in volume of the item
- Inherent vice or nature of the shipment
- Intentional misconduct of the client
- Indirect losses – loss of profit or interest
Generally, if the client doesn’t make a claim, they should be covered for both the freight charges and the replacement value of the goods, courtesy of your insurer.
