Insurance

Please ensure you read the below information regarding insurance through BHF Couriers before considering BHF Couriers as your choice of transport.

 

In the unlikely event that your item is lost, stolen or damaged in transit, we offer a basic insurance of $9.90 incl GST which covers you between $0 - $500.00 AUD and is available to all customers who send freight (as an optional extra). This Insurance has a $150.00 AUD excess which is payable by the insured (you the customer). If your items are valued between $500.00 AUD -$20,000 AUD we may be able to cover your items for an additional charge. This is charged at 3.5% + GST of the invoice value of the item/s you wish to insure. This Insurance also incurs a $150.00 AUD excess which is payable by the insured (you the customer).
