by Lykame » Aug 17, 2018 I am looking at various options to sell my ring in the UK, and one of the methods is by auctioning it. However if this is successful I need to be able to courier it to the new owner, and I want the service to insure it whilst it is in their possession. I am aiming for a sale value of £8,500 or above. This is proving really difficult - Royal Mail will only insure for up to £2,500. A lot of other companies don't offer insurance. Fed Ex can't do it. I'm not 100% sure about UPS in the UK. I know there are courier services who can insure up to around the value of £10,000, but who are they? They must be absolutely trustworthy, registered with Companies House and with good reviews. I found one place but they have only been on Companies House since June... Made me suspicious. And then what do I say? Do I tell them what it is or what? I presume I can insure the ring for whatever the ring sold for? Will they accept the listing and hammer price as proof? Also the buyer will have to pay an additional amount so perhaps it needs to be insured for that total value as that is what the buyer is paying. Finding this all quite stressful to be honest. I would prefer to hand deliver the ring and would be willing to drive anywhere in Britain for that but am also very worried about meeting up with a stranger, and wouldn't know how to prove that meeting had taken place, and where would be a safe place anyway? Is anyone able to recommend a UK courier service who meets this criteria and just offer some general advice about it? I have never done this before and hopefully never again.... Thank you!
