SHOPPING FOR INSURANCE
Federal Express insures up to $ 1,000.00, no matter how expensive the item is. This post is effective as of Sept. 23, 2019. Artists are encouraged to contact Federal Express at the time of shipment to confirm this information.
On Sept.23,2019 I called United Parcel Service (UPS) and their agent said that they do insure up to $50,000 The agent gave me the following prices for this insurance.
$1000 is $10.05 $2000 is $21,00 $3000 is $31.05 $4000 is
$42.33 $5000 is $52.05 $10,000 is $105 $20,000 is $210
$30,000 is $315 $40,000 is $420 and $50, is $525. This website does NOT GUARENTEE these prices. ARTISTS MUST VERIFY with United Parcel Service what prices and policies are in effect at the time of shipment.
Third party insurance is also available. RAMON is one such company I googled them and looked on the Better Business Bureau and both give them extremely high marks and excellent reviews. They have been in business since 1982. Their phone number is 888 441-4435 and their website address is ramonins-usa.com. I encourage artists to go on their site and compare prices. They offer several different programs and I am sure that one of them will fit your insurance needs.
