When you ship your products with Transdirect, you are shipping with a company who is dedicated to getting your goods from A to B in good condition. For those who require additional warranty for whatever reason, we also offer a range of insurance and warranty packages.
Two of our couriers offer conditional warranties at no extra cost to yourself – these are Couriers Please and Fastway. These warranties are included in the price of the consignment, however, it should be noted these warranties do not cover all products – for more information you will need to review their warranty information on our site.
We also offer our own insurance and warranty through our very own Transdirect Pty Ltd Loss or Damage Insurance cover. This cover is a conditional warranty that comes at an additional cost to your consignment.
What are the conditions of the Transdirect Insurance Cover?
Our insurance cover is available to customers who would like to ensure they will be reimbursed in the event that an item is damaged or lost in transit.
For a full list of the terms and conditions of this policy please refer to our PDS document and our Transit Insurance conditions. Our warranty team can help you with any additional questions – their email is firstname.lastname@example.org. The insurance cover we offer has two key benefits:
The responsibility is on the carrier (Transdirect) to fulfil our financial responsibility in the case of damage or loss to property in transit.
Your property is insured for the full replacement value (policy limits vary).
The cost of insurance differs for every package. Our example below is a 5kg small package, with an insurance value of $1500. The additional insurance cost is $6.36.
What is covered by warranty?
For the Transit insurance cover to apply, all goods must be packed at or above the standard set by original manufacturers for this type of transit (you can see details in our PDS). Any damage or loss caused by insufficient packaging will not be covered, and must be valid for transportation using Transdirect (i.e. isn’t a dangerous good). As these policies are conditional, we always recommend reading the individual carrier’s warranty and insurance details to ensure your goods are covered.
