The common misconception with shipping insurance is that the major carriers cover lost and stolen items. Even though some shipping carriers do cover SOME of the claims, it’s only up to $100 in value and once they leave the item on the doorstep they wash their hands of any liability. Even filing a claim that may fit in their responsibility is incredibly difficult with lackluster approvals and often is more frustrating and a hassle than worth it.
