We know that in a perfect shipping world, every package arrives at its final destination intact and on time.
Alas, this is not always the case. We really wish it was.
In times when the world is imperfect, it’s no fun when something happens to your shipment. But if it does? Rather than cross your fingers that you’re covered (and that you’ll recover the full cost of what you were shipping), we highly recommend you take a proactive approach and buy insurance.
For just pennies on the dollar, you can ensure that on the off chance that something happens to your goods, you’re covered.
Don’t leave this up to chance! If your goods get lost or damaged (let’s be honest…it does happen, unfortunately), you’ll thank yourself that you purchased our Accelerate Freight Insurance.
Accelerate is affordable! And it’s super easy to add to your shipment.
How much does it cost?
Accelerate insurance costs 25 cents per $100 of declared value, + $5.00 admin fee.
So… For example, let’s say you have a shipment value of $2,500.
Insurance for this would cost: $2,500 / 100 * .25 + $5.00 admin fee = $11.25
*Accelerate pays on the value of the damaged freight vs. traditional carrier rules tariff provisions and class applications
For $11.25, you’ve ensured that if there’s any unexpected accident on the journey of your shipment, you’ll be able to recover the full value of your package.
If you’ve ever experienced a lost or damaged shipment, you know how frustrating it can be to go through the claims process. Sometimes you might think you were covered, but then you end up only getting paid a fraction of what your shipment was worth.
Let us help you make sure this doesn’t happen.
We have to play the devil’s advocate in the spirit of transparency: If, for some reason, a shipper declines the freight insurance, then the claim is examined and paid by the guidelines of Rules Tariff of the carrier (every carrier has different rules, but all are published on their individual website).
Why do we want to share this insurance information with you?
As your third party shipping broker, yourLTL is not liable for the cost of repair or liability of loss while the freight was under the care and transport of the freight carrier.
But we want to help you prevent the headache, just in case it happens.
On the bright side, as part of our agreement and as a partnership courtesy, our team here at yourLTL will file the claim on behalf of the shipper/broker. But the ultimate decision whether the claim will/will not be paid, and the value that they freight carrier could pay is subject to the freight carriers Rules Tariff vs. the value of the freight.
Only the Accelerate Additional Freight Insurance offers complete protection from damage.
Seems like a no-brainer to buy the Accelerate insurance, doesn’t it?
We highly recommend you take advantage of buying the extra Accelerate insurance. Prevent the headache of dealing with a claim before it ever starts.
Cheers to protecting your packages!
