Do you need small package insurance?

While many shippers rely on the carrier’s limits of liability to protect their packages, it’s important to understand that it may not actually cover the full value of your goods. If you don’t declare the value of your shipment, the limitation of liability provided by UPS is $100. So if the value of your package exceeds $100, it’s time to consider investing in parcel insurance. Shipping insurance is also available for many items — including gift cards, event tickets, jewelry and other high-value items — that are not traditionally covered by carrier liability. So what’s the bottom line? If you’re looking to fully protect your shipments in transit, then you need small package insurance!
