Shipping Insurance in Seneca and Clemson, SC

When a product leaves your business and is loaded onto a mail truck, what happens next is out of your hands—but in many cases, customers still hold you liable for ensuring that their package arrives safely.

Fortunately, shipping insurance is available to fill this coverage gap and protect you when something goes wrong.

What's Covered

This form of insurance will reimburse you if a package is stolen, lost, or damaged on the way to its destination. For anyone looking to send a package, the two major considerations are as follows:

  • Is it already protected? Many packages are already insured by shipping companies—often automatically. However, coverage is not universal and depends both on who carries the package and what type of mail it is. In particular, shippers should familiarize themselves with the regulations of the USPS, whether or not they plan to use it—both FedEx and UPS frequently utilize the Last Mile service, and knowing who is responsible for the package helps ensure that it's fully covered at all times.
  • How much is it worth? Most forms of shipping insurance have a relatively low cap on what they'll pay out (typically several thousand dollars, sometimes as low as one hundred). If you're sending items worth more than the cap, you may still suffer a loss if something happens to the package, and will want to purchase additional coverage. If you do not properly declare the value of the package when it's being sent, you'll be liable for any losses beyond the standard limit.

Domestic Shipping Insurance

Domestic coverage for shipping is often available for as low as a few dollars per-parcel. If you're planning to ship anything that goes above and beyond the protection that carriers normally provide, talk to a Chudyk Financial Services and Insurance Group agents about how many packages you'll be shipping, and they'll work with you to find a rate that matches what you're doing.

International Shipping Insurance

Shipments being mailed internationally are often more expensive to insure, especially if they'll be passing through the hands of a local carrier with a poor reputation. Since fees can vary so widely, based on a combination of factors, it's usually best to get a quote well before you send the package. Tools like the USPS International Price Calculator can be used to get a quick estimate of postage and basic insurance coverage for any given package.

All insurance companies pretty much have the same products to offer. What sets this agency apart is the unsurpassed customer service. The ENTIRE staff including David himself make you feel like you are their ONLY customer. I chose this agency not because their prices were lower but because of the service I received. I have been with this agency going on 2 years and the level of service has never changed. This tells me they not only wanted my business they want to keep my business. If you are looking for auto/home/life insurance or financial services, do yourself a favor and give this agency a shot, you won't be sorry!

David researched an insurance question for me and provided a thorough answer. When I responded with an additional question, David politely instructed me where to find that information in the material he had already provided. Quite kind and patient and clearly knew what I needed. In addition, he was able to respond at a time that was definitely beyond the bounds of the normal business day. Thanks . . .

My husband recently had some issues, as a result of an error with the Virginia Dept of Motor Vehicles. The issue was clearly their fault. My husband showed up at David Chudyk's office after hours and Mr. Chudyk opened the office back up to help him. It took over 3 weeks to have the issue resolved, but Mr. Chudyk and his staff faxed, refaxed and refaxed again the paperwork that they needed as well as made numerous phone calls. I appreciate David Chudyk and his staff for helping my husband straighten this issue out. I feel that they went above and beyond for us.

During an exhausting search for a better price with my clients insurance for Business and personal. I was extremely aware that David was not only considerate but helpful in guiding me to the right coverage at the best possible pricing.. He has went beyond any other agent in my past 25 years has done to ensure that this office and my clients personal coverage was not only what the required but what they needed. In a world of law suits coming for all directions having someone to guide you in what is necessary is what I call above the bar service. Also I am in Cashiers NC and he had no problem servicing our needs from his Seneca SC business office. I plan to let everyone know what an excellent individual / company he is to work with! Again. Thank You David and staff.

I have worked with David over the last year. He has shown me that his main goal is to provide excellent service and adequate coverage to his clients. Recently, I spoke with a current customer of David's who spoke very highly of David's consultative selling approach. In fact, he said that he knows David will always take care of him and make sure he has all the coverages he needs, no more and no less.

David and staff are always responsive to my requests for information and policy changes. My preferred channels of communication are email, phone, and text message, but usually not an office visit. The Chudyk agency has always responded to my requests and needs in a timely manner regardless of which method of communication I use to contact them. Thus far, my experience with Nationwide and the Chudyk Agency have been positive.
