As you can tell, it really couldn’t be easier. There are, however, a few key points to remember when making a shipment. We’ve detailed our rules very clearly in our Terms and Conditions, and we also offer advice on our website to ensure you are 100% covered.

Here’s how to insure your valuable parcel in 4 key steps:


It is vital your goods are correctly packaged. Please make sure you double pack all your shipments. Simply place your goods in one type of packaging (envelope, box, bubble wrap, etc.) and then place that inside a second layer of packaging. Your goods must not be directly visible if your parcel comes open or rips.


Never indicate the value on the outside of your parcel. Sending the parcel to a business whose name might offer a clue as to what is inside? Then simply provide initials, or the name of an actual person. We do not consider the customs invoice to be an indication of value. It must, however, be placed below the shipment slip so the value doesn’t appear directly on the outside of the parcel.

Photos and damage

Take a photo of your goods and your parcel prior to sending it. Don’t hesitate to send these photos to the recipient. It will allow them to spot whether the parcel has been tampered with (opened, ripped). If the parcel appears to be damaged when you receive it, note down clear reservations on the delivery slip in the presence of the delivery person.

Carrier and signature

Our insurance is valid with all carriers worldwide. You must, however, send your shipment using a sign-for delivery service. Our coverage lasts 14 days, so make sure you opt for a fairly swift shipment service to ensure the parcel is delivered within that time.
