Lodging your Transit Protection claim
Updated over a week ago

We've made lodging a claim for Shippit Transit Protection as simple as possible and provided some tips below to ensure your claim has all the required information up front minimising processing timeframes.

1) Get in touch with our Support team:

If you're a Shippit client you can access our Delivery Support Launcher from the Track tab of the Shippit app (as pictured below) and raise a ticket for a damaged parcel.

If you've received a delivery that has arrived damaged, you can raise a ticket directly from the tracking email received from Shippit.


Claim timeframes

Whilst we ask you to allow a few extra days for goods to be delivered before reporting them missing, we urge you to contact our support team shortly after if you're concerned something might have gone missing.

If you've received damaged goods, please contact us immediately as you have limited time to lodge a claim.

Below is the greatest amount of time you have to lodge a claim with Shippit:

Important note for BYO carrier accounts

If you integrate your own carrier account into Shippit, you still need to report damage/loss to Shippit within these timeframes whilst waiting on the carrier to finalise their investigation.

We can allow a maximum of 30 days for BYO carrier claims to be submitted for review.

2) Submit your claim and required documentation

Once your ticket has been lodged with outr support team, we will work with the delivery carrier and/or insurance provided to submit your claim.

I've received damaged goods

If you've received a damaged parcel, Shippit will contact the sender to advise of the damage and they will work out the resolution with you directly as the consumer. Please keep hold of the damaged goods where possible and take pictures of the packaging inside and out.
