Protecting Your Vehicle.
Statistics have shown that approximately 1 in 20 vehicles may incur some damage during the shipping process. Some types of damage will be covered by the carrier’s insurance, while others are not. Also, if the shipper notices damage after the delivery has occurred, it will fall upon the shipper. Damage could end up costing you $100s or $1000s in individual costs or deductibles.
Under normal circumstances, all carriers carry insurance against damage and loss for your vehicle (for example during loading and unloading or parking), and you will never have to pay anything toward costs. AmeriFreight’s shipping transaction terms and conditions contain these clauses. However, there are exceptions. Damage from weather, road debris, and vandalism are not typically covered. Also, a carrier may go out of business preventing a claim. Fortunately, we have a solution that includes these scenarios: the AFta Total Assurance PLAN.
AFta requires that all customers have personal vehicle insurance. The AFta PLAN will cover the deductible up to a maximum amount of $2000. Even if you get your deductible refunded by your insurance company AFta covers you upon receipt of payment from the customer’s insurance company. There is no other plan in the USA currently offering this assurance coverage. Be sure your car shipping company, like AmeriFreight, is offering these level of protection.
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. Purchasing this protection may save you money in the long run.
