Q: How can SHIP-INS help my business?
A: SHIP-INS provides insurance for your package shipments with discounts up to 65% less than
UPS®, Federal Express®, DHL®, U.S. Postal Service and most other small package
carriers. In addition to this significant savings, SHIP-INS provides superior customer service and claims processing.
Q: How can the savings be so great? How can SHIP-INS charge so much less than the carriers?
A: The carriers are in the shipping business, not the insurance business. Their rates are higher because they
provide insurance to all shippers, whether they are professional shippers or not. SHIP-INS is exclusively in the
insurance business. We provide insurance solely to commercial shippers who pack professionally, label well and usually
experience fewer losses. As a result, we provide the insurance savings you deserve.

A: Simply stop recording 'declared or insured value' with the carrier. You don't have to say anything to them.
Our customers have never had any trouble switching over to our program.
