Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
Ship and Insure, a leading provider of shipping insurance, recently issued a helpful guide to help shippers avoid lost or damaged packages. The educational piece details some of the most common reasons packages are lost or damaged, and encourages the public to read the fine print on insurance policies – many of which may not offer the protection they purport to. Ship and Insure’s aim is to help the public avoid unscrupulous insurance practices, while getting their shipped items to recipients in perfect shape.
“Shipping insurance should ensure that a package gets delivered on time and undamaged,” said a representative from Ship and Insure. “Unfortunately, without reading the fine print on a shipping insurance policy, there’s no guarantee that this is always going to be the case. We don’t want consumers to spend their hard-earned money on insurance that won’t in fact cover items damaged or lost due to negligence. This piece is a guide to help consumers avoid such frustrations. ”
In addition to offering consumers advice on the type of shipping insurance to avoid when sending parcels, the infographic offers tips for correctly packaging fragile items, facts about shipping companies and insurance claims in the United States, and a look at common pitfalls that lead to lost or damaged packages. The guide has been made available as a free, shareable download on Ship and Insurance’s website.
