will ensure your shipment arrive safely.
Whilst the packing techniques we employ
are specifically designed to provide the ultimate
protection to your goods during transit, instances
can and do arise whereby damages can occur to shipping
containers, vessels and etc.
We would naturally recommend that you
purchase an all risks full replacement insurance cover
to protect your interest on the valued possession
during transit. It is difficult to determine the cause
or where the damage/loss took place. Therefore, shipping
lines, airlines, moving companies and other transportation
modes place contractual limits on their liability
for loss and damage.
Vanpac International insurance program is especially
designed for international household goods shipment,
fine arts, antiques, including automobiles for total
replacement value on a door-to-door basis.
You will be reimbursed for the full-declared
value of the damaged item in the case of total loss,
without any deduction.
To ensure your shipment is properly & adequately
covered, prior to the packing day, you should try
to make your complete itemised value inventory of
your possessions. This list should contain all items
in your shipment. Take time to walk around your home
and accessing it carefully. You should indicate full
replacement insurance costs and be sure to include
“high value items “ such as antique, valuable
carpet, sterling silver, crystal and etc.
A separate valued inventory form must
be completed for each shipment prior packing. For
example, you will need to complete one for the sea
shipment and another one for the air shipment. Be
sure to ask for another valued inventory form.
If you have a shipment with two
separate deliveries (i.e.: one for temporary storage)
it is best to provide two separate valued inventory.
