Cargo Damage Protection Explained
Protecting your valuable classic cars during international shipping is our top concern. From the transporter picking up the car and the shipping facilities it gets loaded in, to the overseas agent handling your import - they all provide automatic coverage for your car while it is under their care. But there is one party that will not pay if anything goes wrong under their watch.
Ocean carriers transporting your containers on their ships are liable for almost nothing. If a container goes off a ship, or gets accidentally tipped or dropped - there will be damage. Damage that the ocean carrier will tell you is your responsibility.
Should a container be dropped a few meters at the port for example, damage is unavoidable. Worst of it all, the customer will be stuck with the bill. As mentioned, ocean carriers hold all the cards. Contact us today to get a quote on optional cargo damage protection.
