How to Ship Jewelry Mistake-Free

Posted by Logan Moore on Oct 10, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Remember that time as a kid you tried sending a birthday card to your grandmother and wrote the wrong address on the envelope?

Okay, so maybe you didn’t do exactly that, but there’s a good chance someone else reading this (or writing it) made a similar mistake. In the end, grandma still loves you and there’s proof of your effort if the card was Elvis Presley’d and returned to sender.

Posted by Logan Moore on Aug 2, 2018 7:00:00 AM

  • When they should obtain coverage through a carrier

  • Why it sometimes makes sense to mix their block policy with third-party coverage
