Insurance Coverage on Packages

Our Insurance Coverage

To mitigate the effects of unforeseen or uncertain losses and damages in respect to the importation of items using the services of CSF Couriers Limited, we extend to you a standard insurance coverage. The Standard Insurance covers eligible items for air shipments, by default, with certain exceptions and circumstances, which is explained in our terms of service. Your CSF Invoice will automatically be billed Insurance charge of one percent (1%) based on the stated value of the Supplier's Invoice for items being imported into Trinidad. In the absence of the Supplier's Invoice, the description value applied by Customs and Excise.

The Standard Insurance covers a maximum value of up to USD2000.00. Standard coverage applies to eligible items as described, with the exception of the following:

(i) any item exceeding the limit of 50 pounds (volumetric or actual weight);

(ii) perishable and all fragile/breakable items;

(iii) any single supplier's invoice exceeding the value of USD2000.00.

 

WHY DO WE USE IT?

All televisions inclusive of monitors or displays being shipped, must be accompanied by the supplier's invoice upon shipping to Trinidad. This is to ensure that the proper insurance coverage is secured for the item. The insurance calculation for such is 10% of the value of the item or any part thereof.

For example, if the item is valued at USD1250.00 the insurance will be calculated based on the value of US$1300.00. The insurance charge will therefore be calculated at USD130.00 and this value will be billed to your freight invoice.

NOTE: When a Television is shipped to Trinidad using our CSF service, upon arrival to our facility, checks are made to ensure that it is in Good Condition. Customers are then required to visit our “Requested Pick-Up Office” located in Pokhor Road, Longdenville to collect all televisions.
