    Sending jewelry through the post 17th Oct 16 at 4:36 PM
    A friend has set up a successful online jewelry retail business. To date, the products have been relatively low value at under £100 an item

    She is now moving upmarket, where the product value could be up to £2,000.

    Her concern is around delivering high value products. Parcelforce’s compensation scheme excludes jewelry:

    What is the best way to deliver high value products, through an insured delivery mechanism?

    Royal Mail special delivery with additional insurance comes to mind.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    Cool - thanks for that

    What sort of additional insurance? Who are the providers?

    They do - it simply enhances the standard amount of compensation with a higher premium.
