Mistake #4: Not Getting Insurance For Your Delivery

Do you sell bulky and expensive wares? Lost and damaged items must be one of your biggest nightmares. They can result in more than monetary losses, as your brand and reputation are put at risk too.

With us, get peace of mind from just $3, as you get up to $2000 in coverage for cargo loss and damage! Moreover, it’s available as an add-on service whenever you need, instead of a fixed monthly subscription.
