Protect the goods you send through Shippit with our low-cost Transit Protection. This allows you to cover your goods at retail value against loss or damage during transit for up to the Maximum Cover Amount specified here for domestic and international deliveries.

By default, Transit Protection will be added to all your deliveries. You will then have the option of opting out for certain carriers you don't require protection for.
