If you experience a lost package or a damaged package, you can simply file a claim to the carriers. (All carriers have default declared values of $100 for each package, except FedEx SmartPost, UPS SurePost & USPS First Class). There are two ways to file a claim if you use the ShipSaving platform. 

Using a carrier’s insurance OR package has no insurance coverage:

1. Please prepare all documents required to file a claim:

Documents for Lost Claim

  • Proof-of-value documentation, such as a copy of the original invoice from vendor/supplier, a copy of retail invoice/receipt, a final confirmation screen of an online order with proof of payment.

Documents for Damaged Claim:

  • Proof-of-value documentation, such as a copy of the original invoice from vendor/supplier, a copy of retail invoice/receipt, a final confirmation screen of an online order with proof of payment.
  • Photos of the package and damaged contents (including photos of original packing as well, could use the other ones with the same packing).
  • Appraisal(s) - Expense statement

2. Please fill out the ShipSaving Claim Form and Waiver Form.

3. Please send all the required documents to claims@shipsaving.com. In the email, the subject line must include a tracking number and the company name registered on ShipSaving.

4. USPS can file a claim within 15-60 days of the package being shipped; other carriers need to file it within 60 days.

5. It usually takes one month for carriers to screen claims. If approved, we will refund your account within 3-5 business days after receiving a refund from the carriers.
