1. What cover does my consignment have?
All consignments are covered by our Standard Liability cover free of charge for loss or damage up to a maximum of $100 in value (per consignment not per box).
A claim can only be made against the declared value entered for an item when creating a despatch request.
If you wish to purchase extended liability you may do so by declaring the value and selecting ‘extended liability’ during the online despatch checkout.
The extended liability premium is calculated at 2% of the declared value, with a minimum premium of $5 providing $250 of cover.
If Sales tax is applicable this is additional
The maximum value we cover is $1,000 per consignment - please contact us if you require cover above this value
Standard Liability and Extended Liability Cover does not give cover for losses incurred by delay, or seizure by Customs.
The declared value should be the replacement cost of the goods, not the sale value.
Extended Liability Cover is not offered for USPS shipments
Extended Liability Premiums are non-refundable once the despatch ticket has been created.
2. Are there any exclusions to Standard or Extended Liability?
Any items which appear on the relevant carrier's Prohibited or Restricted Items list are not eligible for our Standard Liability or Extended Liability Cover. Please click here for a general list or visit the relevant carrier’s web site for more information.
Restricted items are covered by our Standard Liability and Extended Liability Cover only in the event of loss and NOT for damage. Please refer to our Restricted Item information.
If you do send such goods we recommend that you arrange insurance yourself or if you are unsure if your goods will be covered please contact us.
Skypax will package all despatches to our high standards and leave original packaging where possible. Extended Liability Cover for damage is not available for consignments containing items that have been re-packed at the customer's request to minimise the volumetric weight
