Guarantee, Underwriting, and Administration
Shipping Guarantee. Through our Policy, we provide a shipping guarantee for your online purchases that are lost, damaged or “porch pirated” while in transit. We are not licensed to offer insurance but do offer a guarantee to either reimburse the customer for 100% of their purchase (minus the original shipping cost & any guarantee fee's) or reship the order again to a different address where the package can be received.
The Policy does not cover the following: cash, cigarettes and other tobacco products; computer memory modules and cards; cotton; fine art (defined as art valued in excess of $10,000 per piece); flowers; fresh foods (excepting frozen foods in refrigerated containers); jewelry valued in excess of $300 per piece; live animals; negotiable papers; perishable commodities (defined as commodities which spoil or deteriorate when not carried or stored in a temperature controlled environment); pharmaceutical drugs; plants; precious stones and metals; securities; automobiles and motorcycles; bagged goods; boats and yachts; ceramic, marble or granite tiles; slabs blocks; countertops; statues; glass windows, plate glass and similar goods; lumber; used household goods and personal effects; scrap metal; and steel metal and steel metal products.
For domestic shipments, the insured must wait seven (7) business days after the scheduled delivery date, and, for international shipments, the insured must wait ten (10) business days after the scheduled delivery date to file for non-delivery (lost) claims. If damaged, the insured must file a notice of damage with Prepared Hero within three (3) days of receipt of such shipment. All claims must be filed within thirty (30) days of parcel shipment date to be honored. The insured will submit a completed claim form, copy of the original invoice to the consignee/ original invoice from the shipper, whichever is applicable, a signed and dated statement from the consignee / receiving party, proof of damage if applicable and any additional documentation requested to substantiate the loss. Coverage does not include handling fees and guarantee fees. All damaged property for which payment (not repair costs), or replacement costs have been made, must, on request, be returned to Prepared Hero. Failure to hold the damaged property until the claim is fully resolved will result in the claim(s) being denied. The insured will have one (1) year from the date of the shipment to furnish any required and/or additional documentation requested by Prepared Hero in order for the insured to substantiate said claim. Should the insured fail to provide the required and/or additional documentation within one (1) year from the ship date, the insured’s claim will be denied. Any covered loss will be promptly paid to the insured or their assignee after notice of loss or damage and the required documentation has been received and accepted by Prepared Hero in accordance with all terms and conditions of this coverage, unless property is replaced, at the option of Prepared Hero, with like kind, function, and quality.
No suit, action or proceedings for the recovery of any claim under this coverage shall be sustainable in any court of law or entity unless the respective action is commenced within twelve (12) months after discovery by the insured of the issue giving rise to the claim, provided however, that said time limitation is invalid by the state law where this coverage is issued. In that case any such claim shall be void.
The insured or Prepared Hero may terminate the Policy at any time by giving fifteen (15) days written notice thereof, provided that such termination does not impact a shipment already in transit. Certified notice of cancellation sent to the insured at the last known address shall be deemed sufficient compliance with the conditions of this clause on the part of Prepared Hero.
Submission of Claims
All packaging material and damaged goods must be kept in the original form as received. Packaging and damaged goods should not be disposed of or released to the shipping carrier before a claim is completed, as photographs may be required. Failure to comply can result in the denial of the claim due to insufficient packing.
The insured will submit a completed claim form, copy of the original invoice to the consignee / original invoice from the shipper, whichever is applicable, a signed and dated statement from the consignee / receiving party, proof of damage if applicable and any additional documentation requested to substantiate the loss. Coverage does not include handling fees and guarantee fees. All damaged property for which payment (not repair costs), or replacement costs have been made, must, on request, be returned to Prepared Hero. Failure to hold the damaged property until the claim is fully resolved will result in the claim’s being denied.
Once a claim has been accepted and approved by Prepared Hero, prompt payment will be made to the insured.
