Goods in Transit Insurance

Shipments via courier within the United States and Canada are covered automatically to a maximum of $50,000 against physical loss or damage. For potential coverage in excess of $50,000, please contact Risk Management.

The premium for this policy is paid out of the university's insurance budget, but departments are responsible for a $500 deductible in the event of a claim.

Note: If you are shipping equipment back to a supplier for repairs, you do not need to insure it through a courier if the value of the item being shipped is less than $50,000 and if it is being shipped within Canada or the US. Items in excess of $50,000 and/or those being shipped to other destinations will require special coverage. Please contact Risk Management to make arrangements.
