How to Arrange Warranty for Your Consignments

PACK & SEND Warranty protection is easy to arrange for your shipments. While organising your consignment you can simply request the service and we can confirm what is required to ensure that the goods that you are sending are eligible to be covered by Warranty – this is usually only that we have to pack the items for you but occasionally additional conditions may apply. We only offer Warranty cover on items we are shipping.

Warranty: What is Covered?

At PACK & SEND, we can provide our customers with a professional packing service, address labelling, document preparation, freight pick-up and delivery to door, store or port and track and trace. Our Warranty Protection covers the items being shipped by us and protects the value of your consignment in the event of loss or damage subject to certain conditions.

Once you are covered by our Warranty which then means that we agree to deliver the goods in the condition that the goods were received by us. If the goods are lost whilst in our care, we will pay you the agreed market value of the goods as detailed on the consignment documentation.

If the goods are damaged whilst in our care, we will pay you the reasonable cost of repair up to the amount nominated on the PACK & SEND consignment note.

There are no excesses payable in PACK & SEND Warranty cover so you really do have complete peace of mind. It is also important to remember that the PACK & SEND UK Warranty is for physical loss or damage and does not include consequential loss.
