Insurance

Safety is our number one priority, so we highly recommend that all artwork be fully insured while in transit. Accidents happen...so it's always best to err on the side of caution.

During the quoting/confirmation process, you will be required to select one of the following options: 

    

    Option A: Purchase iTransport4u, Inc. insurance coverage - which is offered a 1-2% of the artwork's value (see details below).

    Option B: Waive ALL liability of iTransport4u, Inc. for any loss or damage - no matter the cause. This option allows you to use your own insurance coverage or third-party insurance coverage, or decline any/all forms of insurance coverage.
 


 

We offer a two-tiered insurance policy...

The following qualifications/terms must apply in order to verify your eligibility for repair, replacement or reimbursement of the declared (appraised) value of the insured item(s):


Tier 1 coverage:

  • Is offered at 1% of the artwork’s value

  • Requires that the item(s) be pre-packed (by the sender, or another entity) prior to pickup

    • The insured item(s) must have new, pristine packaging

  • Requires adherence to our minimum packing standards

  • Covers complete loss of the insured item due to theft, fire and/or auto accident

    • iTransport4u CANNOT be held liable for damage incurred as a result of poor/inadequate packaging

  • Does NOT include unpacking & debris removal

    • Unpacking & debris removal must be requested as an additional service (and quoted accordingly) prior to confirmation
       



Tier 2 coverage:

  • Is offered at 2% of the artwork’s value (plus applicable packing costs)

  • Requires that the item(s) be packed by our driver at time of pickup

  • Covers any/all damage incurred while in our possession

  • Includes unpacking & debris removal

    • Unpacking will be performed in the presence of the recipient at time of delivery

    • If the packaging of the item is extensive or otherwise complicated, or the delivery location is not ground-level, an additional fee may apply for debris removal services

Please note:

  • If the artwork requires special handling due to sensitivity or fragility (i.e. orientation or temperature- 
sensitivity), it MUST be fully disclosed in writing prior to confirmation

    • iTransport4u CANNOT be held liable for any damages incurred due to [the initiator’s] failure to communicate applicable stipulations/ requirements to iTransport4u, Inc. staff
