How do I select the amount to be insured?
It is important that you insure your goods for their full value. This means that you should tell us about:
For Replacement Cost Cover – The cost to you to purchase new replacement items of the same type and quality (with no allowance for depreciation).
For Market Value Cover – Replacement cost less an allowance for age, condition, wear and tear, and depreciation.
If you have selected the “Easy Valuation” insurance option using the recommended minimum insured meterage values (AU$1,800 per m3 for consignments within Australia or AU$3,000 for overseas consignments), you should carefully consider if the amount(s) is/are sufficient for your goods. We recommend you seek independent advice to the value of your goods if you are in any doubt.
If the declared value of the goods is less than 80% of their actual value at the time of the loss or damage, the amount of the claim will be reduced in the same proportion as the declared value bears to 80% of the actual value.
