Package Protection

How Do I Protect My Package?

Declared Value

UPS is liable for loss or damage, at no extra cost, for up to $100.00 for each domestic package, international shipment, or pallet in a UPS Worldwide Express Freight® shipment, where there is no declared value. If the value of your goods exceeds this amount, you can declare up to $50,000 per package or $100,000 per pallet (subject to terms and conditions) by entering the declared value when you create a shipment on and paying an additional charge. Certain domestic packages are eligible for the enhanced maximum declared value of $70,000, subject to restrictions set forth in the UPS Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service. Please note that these amounts are in U.S. dollars. When a shipper declares a value in excess of $100, it does not receive any form of insurance.
