Extra Insurance for Lost Items

Important Announcement - Extra Insurance for Lost Items

To All Our Valued Members:

There have been a few incidents of lost items due to the random inspection of our boxes by the U.S. Customs. They take out the items inside the boxes and then pack it again thus also ruining the way we carefully pack the items. They do this to boxes of cargo forwarders to the Philippines. Around 30% of our boxes are subject to these random inspections. Examples of items that are lost are relatively 'small' items such as shades, watches, small gadgets and the like. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, the insurance of the courier, Forex Cargo, only covers 'loss' of the whole box and not the 'loss' of items inside the box. However, POBox has tried to compensate for the 'Loss' of these items as an act of service and commitment to our clients. Moving Forward, Forex and POBox may not be able to cover ALL losses anymore. In lieu of these circumstances, we decide to offer Extra Insurance coverage for such instances. The ff. are the details for this Extra Insurance:

1. Extra Insurance coverage offered is for up to $100 and $200 only. The additional cost for the insurance is $5 and $10 respectively.
2. Extra Insurance coverage is only for 'Loss' of items due to Random Inspection by the U.S. Customs.
3. Extra Insurance coverage is in additional to coverage of Forex Cargo. Claims should be first made to Forex and the Extra Insurance will cover balances that were not claimed through Forex if the claim was deemed valid.
4. When shipping a box, POBox will ask all if they want to avail of the Extra Insurance. The fee for the Extra Insurance should be paid with the shipment fee of the box.

Since the maximum coverage we offer is only $200, we advise everyone to refrain from shipping expensive, valuable and 'small' items for now while the situation with the U.S. Customs remains uncertain. This extra insurance will be offered starting on the September 19 shipment batch.

Kindly let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this.

Thank you very much!
