When property is in transit to and from the University, a transit insurance application form needs to be completed:
This is for goods belonging to the University or for which it is responsible. It is for:
- a maximum in any one sending in respect of postal sendings £1,000 (policy excess is £250)
- single and return journeys within the UK (policy excess is £500)
- single and return journeys abroad (policy excess is £2,500).
All transits totalling over £250,000 must be declared to email@example.com at least two weeks prior to shipping/posting. The insurance policy does not include cover for property with a value of this level and special insurance, for which there may be a cost to the department, must be obtained.
The policy excludes transits to, from or within any of the listed excluded destinations. For any transits to these locations please refer to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks prior to transit.
- Democratic Republic of Congo
- East Timor
- Ivory Coast
- North Korea
- Sierra Leone
- South Sudan
- Republic of Yemen
and any country where local legislation precludes insurance being effected outside that country.
As soon as you become aware of any loss or damage which may give rise to a claim, please contact email@example.com for guidance.
