Q: Why is insurance not automatically included in the shipping cost?
We offer the customers the option for shipping insurance to save on the final costs of your total order. We have found that 99% of the time, with our precautionary packaging procedures (multiple layers of bubble wrap, fragile stickers, caution alerts in red lettering, etc) and cooperation on the behalf of the the courier, your order arrives problem and damage free. Therefore, it seems adding insurance automatically to the order is costing the customers more for nothing.
