2 - RATE STRUCTURE
2.1 - SHIPPING BY BUS:
The cost of shipping is based on weight, distance travelled and volume. The rate for basic service includes shipping costs from the origin point of sale to the destination point of sale. Regular rates apply to packages under 12 cu. ft. Packages 12 to 39 cu. ft. will be charged at double the regular rate. Any shipment where fees will be payable at destination is subject to an additional charge of $3 + tax.
Shipments of bumpers are automatically charged at double the regular rate (see rates for packages 12 to 39 cu. ft.). Bumpers must be fully packaged and protected in a manner that ensures they remain so during shipping.
2.2 - PICKUP AND DELIVERY:
Pickup and delivery charges will be added to the shipping fee. For packages with two dimensions exceeding 40 in. (oversized package), pickup and delivery charges will be double the regular rate, regardless of the packages' overall dimension. If more than one truckload is required for a single pickup or delivery, the rate applies independently to each load. If a special truck is needed to complete the trip, special charges will apply where this service is offered.
3 - PROHIBITED (FORBIDDEN) PACKAGES
4 - INSURANCE
4.1 - VALUE
The sender must declare the value of any package shipped and is responsible for properly packaging items. Proper packaging means protection that will hold up in transportation from the departure point of sale to the destination point of sale. In case of loss or damage, the carrier’s liability is limited to the actual value of the item up to a maximum of $100 per shipment if no additional insurance was paid.
4.2 - COVERAGE
Insurance coverage up to a maximum of $1,000 is available at a small extra charge. Any item valued at over $1,000 is not insurable and is shipped at the sender’s risk.

If an electronic device is shipped in its original box and the customer chooses to purchase insurance, physical damage to the equipment is covered. However, insurance will not cover device malfunctions, whether due to shipping or not.
