Why get Marine insurance when shipping your car?

Posted by on 6 February 2017 | Comments

Even if most of the time shipping your car goes well and your car arrives safe to destination, it may be not always the case.

According to the World Shipping Council on average 10,000 out of 120,000,000 containers shipped every year are lost overboard (nearly one container an hour).

When it comes to cars, approximately 5% of the cars shipped each year are damaged during transport’s operations.
