  • Any item valued over A$ 400.00 must be declared separately in the schedule below and the value stated ie. Antique Table A$ 800.00 Piano A$ 1000.00
  • items not declared will be deemed to have a value not greater than A$ 400.00

Cover will continue during the normal course of transit (including up to one month at packer's premises) from the time the goods are taken up at the above address until set down at the final address (including up to one month after discharge from Ship awaiting delivery).
Note 1 When name of vessel is unknown a quotation will be given on the basis that the vessel is approved by Underwriters.  In such cases it is possible that when the Underwriters are eventually informed of the name of the vessel an additional premium may be required, especially should the vessel be over 15 years old.
Note 2 In the event of any storage taking place before arrival at final address, cover will cease on arrival at such place of storage unless prior notice is given to New Zealand Shipping stating full details of the location, storage facilities and period, and an additional premium paid.
