When you’re protecting your goods, you need to make sure you’ve covered their value in the case of any situation. While you might not realize it, you aren’t instantly covered for damages sustained along the way. 4 Seas International Shipping, Inc. wants you to know that all-risk cargo insurance is the way to keep your cargo safe.
What All-Risk Cargo Insurance Is
When you choose all-risk cargo insurance, the insurance premium is based on the INSURED VALUE (all shipments to be valued at Cost, Insurance and Freight, including any prepaid and/or advanced and/or guaranteed freight plus 10% or C.I.F. plus 10%).
- The insurance value for used general merchandise and personal effects should be the actual cash value of the goods rather than the replacement value.
- Personal effects can only be insured for “All risk” if professionally packed.
- Professionally packed means that the goods have been packed into cartons, crates etc.
- An itemized valued inventory list is required for personal effects.
While this system might seem to be a little much, the more protection you have, the less worry you will have as well.
