CAR SHIPPING MARINE INSURANCE
CALL US ON 01525 851545 IF YOU NEED HELP FINDING INFORMATION
We value your business and hope that we can carry out your forthcoming shipment. Whilst we take every care to ensure that your vehicle and belongings arrive safely at their destination we strongly recommend that you take advantage of marine insurance cover.
We will look after your vehicle to the best of our ability but unfortunately accidents do occasionally happen. You are insured with Lloyds of London but naturally there have to be some conditions and exclusions and there are some circumstances that cannot be covered. In order for us to have arranged marine insurance cover you must declare to us the value of your vehicle. If you do not give us a valuation or decline marine insurance cover then our liability will default to Limited Liability. The declared value should have represented the full value of the vehicle + shipping costs + 10%.
In respect of all shipments the following clauses apply, except the war clauses that only apply to waterborne / air movements:
- Institute Cargo Clauses (A)
- Institute Cargo Clauses (Air) (Excluding sendings by post)
- Institute War Clauses (Cargo)
- Institute War Clauses (Air Cargo) (Excluding sendings by post)
- Institute War Clauses (Sendings by post)
- Institute Strikes Clauses (Cargo)
- Institute Strikes Clauses (Air Cargo)
- Institute Classification Clause
- Institute Replacement Clause
- Institute Radioactive Contamination, Chemical, Biological, Bio-Chemical and Electromagnetic Weapons Exclusion Clause
- Institute Cyber Attack Exclusion Clause
Correct Valuation: In the event of the actual value being greater than the declared value the marine insurance cover shall only bear such proportion of the loss as the declared value bears to the total value of the vehicle.
Excess: £250 each and every loss (£500 for vehicles over 10 years old) or 1% of the insured value whichever is greater
Exclusions: Excluding loss or damage whilst under own power except for loading and unloading.
Excluding third party liability. Excluding electrical and mechanical derangement unless caused by an insured peril.
Choice of Law: Construed and governed by English Law and any dispute submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the High Court of Justice, England.
Duration: Cover incepts from the time the customers property is in the care, custody and control of the Assured and continues until such property is delivered to the consigned location and/or where the Assured’s care, custody and control ceases.
We strongly recommend that for peace of mind you protect your vehicle with our marine insurance as without cover your losses in the event of any loss could be considerable especially as you are not only responsible for your vehicle but also for a proportion of the vessel and it’s voyage.
