Every shipment is different.  Shipping charges are built around, and rated on, 4 basic criteria (1) DISTANCE – where is the shipment from / where is it going, (2) WEIGHT – of the shipment, (3) TIME – how fast / when do you need the package to arrive at its destination?  (4) VALUE- If you buy insurance it is about $200 per hundred dollars of value. It can add up if you are shipping expensive item but worth the investment to minimize risk. WE DO NOT MAKE ANY MONEY ON INSURANCE. It is a cost. Ship Guitars leverages our volume shipping rates and passes them along to everyone; those that ship one package a year, and to those that ship 20 per day (…and everywhere in between).  Domestic and International – we have you covered, generally saving between 25-70% off list rates. We are a very lean company to purposely keep costs down as best we can while staying in business for our valuable clients.

We have door to door delivery service with our premeium courrier service for super valuable instruments or ones that need to be delivered in hours not days. We also partner with UPS and other leading international shipping carriers. They can pick up your pre-labeled shipment at your location, or you can drop it off at any authorized UPS outlet or customer care center.  UPS provides the end-to-end shipping solution in the US and internationally and Ship Guitars provides the lables, shipping documents, high value insurance, discounts plus an extra layer of support. If in the rate case of a claim we file all paperwork and directly pay you.

Yes – we highly recommend that you insure your gear.  READ OUR PACKING TIPS:  Insure your gear!  Guitars are fragile; they need to be packaged properly, and insured against damage in transit.  Buy yourself some peace of mind and insure your shipments!

Unfortunately, damages do occur from time to time.  As we mentioned above, Ship Guitars recommends taking insurance on every shipment. 99% of all damage occurs on ground shipments. We recommend Two day or Overnight for guitars worth more than $1,000.  Insurance will cover any damage so long as proper packaging methods were employed on the shipment and a claim is filed timely.  A rule of thumb when packing your instruments for shipment:  MORE IS ALWAYS BEST!  See our proper packaging methods section, refer to the UPS service guide, or contact us with any questions prior to shipping.
