Art Handlers provides transit insurance in two ways:


Option 1

Our standard insurance coverage, which is included in rates for services, is .60 per pound per item. This coverage is an industry standard and will be in force on the BOL at a “No Declared Value” status.


Option 2

When you require more than the standard insurance coverage available in option #1, you may declare a value for the BOL. This additional transit insurance coverage is offered at $6.00 per $1,000.00 value for domestic shipments and $10.00 per $1,000.00 for International shipments. You may declare a value for any amount.

Both options above are available if Art Handlers approves the packing/crating prior to shipping. Art Handlers reserves the right to inspect the shipment for a fee and/or refuse any shipment at any time when it does not meet our standards.

Insurance Coverage for either option does not apply to any shipments containing glass that are being shipped by any freight forwarder other than a designated art shuttle service. This insurance coverage only applies to shipments one way. Insurance Coverage will have to be purchased again for return shipments requiring transit insurance.

Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for more information regarding our Insurance Coverage Policies.
