  • Declared Value Protection

    • UPS and FedEx shipments are automatically protected against loss or damage up to a value of $100. For protection above $100, customers may declare the ACTUAL VALUE up to certain limits.

    • To prevent denied claims, all shipped goods must abide by the Shipping Carriers' packaging rules and regulations.

    • In the absence of the Shipping Carriers' packaging rules and regulations, all shipped goods must abide by the  → The Mail Center Etc.'s minimum requirements.  Our requirements mirror those of the major shipping carriers.

    • The Mail Center Etc strives to inform and educate our customers concerning declared value protection. However, due to the complexity of each carrier’s terms we highly recommend that customers be familiar with the tariffs of each carrier, especially in regards to declared value protection.
