Insurance

Freight Insurance Icon for International Freight Solutions Ltd

Are your goods insured? It is surprisingly common for companies to assume that their carriers limited liability will somehow cover them in the event of damage or loss of goods. This is not always the case.

IFS take care to remind customers that their goods may require insuring to full value to ensure they do not lose out in the event of a claim. It is worth checking whether it is the Exporter, the Consignee or Forwarder who are expected to arrange insurance cover.

It doesn’t cost that much to fully insure your goods
premiums start from just £10.00

IMPORTANT INSURANCE NOTICE – Please note...

IFS and our partners take a great deal of care when arranging the shipping of your goods, however, loss and damage do sometimes happen and it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you have the benefit of cargo insurance. In the event of loss/damage drivers, transport depots and shipping lines will either severely limit their liability to a very small amount, or make no payment at all. If you do not have your own cargo insurance we can arrange it for you. Please advise the value of your goods and we will provide a quotation. Thank you.

Simply add your insurance requirements in our online quote, or call us to discuss further:
