Statistics have shown that approximately 1 in 20 vehicles may incur some type of damage during the shipping process. If this damage, for some reason, is not covered by the carrier’s insurance or if you notice it after delivery has already occurred, you have no recourse but to use your own funds or personal insurance to repair your vehicle. This could end up costing you $100s or $1000s in personal costs or deductibles.
Under normal circumstances, all carriers are covered by damage and loss for your vehicle and you will never have to pay anything toward damages. This is included in each of AmeriFreight’s shipping transaction terms and conditions. However, there are exceptions. Should a vehicle be damaged during the process of parking, storage or loading/ unloading a truck , a carrier’s insurance will not cover the cost. In addition, should a carrier company go out of business or fraudulent business practices prevent a claim from being settled, you will not be covered. Fortunately, for any of these reasons you have to use your personal vehicle insurance to settle a claim and repair damages, we have you covered by the Total Assurance PLAN.
It is required that all customers have personal vehicle insurance. This PLAN will cover the deductible up to a maximum amount of $2000 upon receipt of payment from the customer’s insurance company, even if you get your deductible refunded by your insurance company. There is no other PLAN in the USA currently offering this assurance coverage.
In order to purchase the AFta PLAN , you must ship your vehicle through a broker or carrier company that is an AFta Agent. Please contact your broker for details.
