Insurance

We offer a two-tiered insurance policy...

 

Tier 1 coverage is offered at 1% of the artwork’s value. The following terms & conditions must apply in order to verify your eligibility for repair, replacement or reimbursement of appraised value of the insured item: 

  • The item/s will be pre-packed (by the sender, or another entity) prior to pickup.

    • The insured item/s must have new, pristine packaging. 



    • If packing materials have been recycled and reused, then the item will be at higher risk.

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

    • Packing suggestions/recommendations are available upon request. 

  • Complete loss of the insured item due to theft, fire and/or auto accident will be fully covered. 

  • Any mishandling (by our driver) that results in damage to the insured item must display new, significant 
and visible exterior damage to the corresponding location on the item’s packaging. 

  • 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. 


 



Tier 2 coverage is offered at 2% of the artwork’s value. The following terms & conditions must apply in order 
to verify your eligibility for repair, replacement or reimbursement of appraised value of the insured item: 

  • The item/s will be soft-packed (by our driver) at time of pickup.



    • iTransport4u WILL be held liable for damage incurred as a result of poor/inadequate packaging

  • Any mishandling (by our driver) that results in damage to the insured item must display new, significant and visible exterior damage to the corresponding location on the item’s packaging. 

  • 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.

Disclaimer...

iTransport4u CANNOT be held liable for minor blemishes to artwork caused as a result of standard transportation operations, including auto vibrations. Both interior and exterior packaging materials should provide adequate protection (based on the fragility of the package's contents) and be of sufficient strength to sustain standard transportation shock and vibration

 

If you wish to purchase insurance for your shipment, you will be required to fill our a Cargo Insurance Coverage Terms & Conditions form (which simply agrees to the above terms & conditions) and return it to us via email. You will only have to fill this form out ONCE and it will apply to all future insured shipments. Insurance coverage CANNOT be added to a shipment unless we have a signed form on file.

Alternatives...

Insurance coverage is NOT required for shipping. 

 

Although it is common for new users to purchase insurance coverage, many of our  returning clientele  frequently opt out, because they trust our drivers' capabilities

 

Some people even purchase insurance coverage for a portion of the total value, rather than the entire value.

 

Others use their own insurance coverage (i.e. homeowner's insurance or art studio/gallery insurance).
