While the vast majority of eCommerce items are insurable, there are exceptions that can vary from carrier to carrier and insurer to insurer. Some commonly uninsurable items include:

  • Currency and other financial instruments
  • Hazardous materials
  • Gemstones
  • High-value items, which may have a lower coverage limit than other items; for example, FedEx limits the value of artwork, antiques, and flat screen TVs to $1,000

Other items may have special limits on value or liability; for example, some providers require signature confirmation to insure certain high-value items. For more information on excluded items, visit http://bit.ly/InsuranceRestrictions

Finally, you may not be able to insure shipments to certain destinations, such as North Korea and Iran. For more information on this, see:
