Insurance

At ICR Worldwide Express, we take pride in the safe and secure handling of every shipment that passes through our system.

But in certain (and rare) circumstances, events beyond our control can impact on your delivery.

As standard, we offer a £50 liability payment for loss or damage of your goods in transit. If your goods are higher in value, we strongly advise that you take out additional insurance.

We can arrange cover for you, starting at 2.5% of the value of your goods, with a minimum charge of £20.

However, when it comes to insurance, nothing is standard. Certain goods and certain destinations will have an effect on your premium and the type of cover we can provide.

So before you do anything else, it’s best to call us and discuss your shipment in more detail.

Preparing your Commercial Invoice

Any non-document based export must be accompanied by a commercial invoice – unless it’s destined for one of the exempt EU countries, which you can view here.

The invoice, along with an AirWay Bill, will help us to clear your shipment through Customs, so we recommend that you include all the details below:

  1. The full destination address, including the name of the recipient – and their business name if applicable
  2. Your contact name and telephone/fax number
  3. Your Airway Bill number
  4. The shipping date
  5. A clear and accurate description of the goods – including all items, quantites and unit value
  6. The total invoice value
  7. Your VAT number, if applicable
  8. Your reason for export
  9. The shipment’s country of origin
  10. Terms of delivery – DDU or DDP (Delete as necessary)
  11. Your name and signature – including the date and your position in the company

Please make sure your invoice is produced on a company letterhead, and include 4 copies with your shipment – each bearing an original signature.

Commercial Invoice Template

To help you further, we’ve prepared a Commercial Invoice Template. You can complete this on screen and print it directly onto your letterhead.

If you have any problems producing your Commercial Invoice, our Customer Services team is here to help.

List of EU Countries

All NON-DOCUMENT SHIPMENTS require a commercial invoice, unless they’re sent to one of the countries listed below. Your Commercial Invoice must appear on company headed paper, showing the full name and address of the consignor and the consignee, and including a full description of goods and their true market value.
