Goods in Transit Insurance

Requests to insure equipment whilst being transported to or from the University should be emailed to the insurance section -  .

The following information must be provided:

  • School / Academic Unit / Department
  • Details of the journey, method of transportation and destination
  • Value of items
  • Dates of Transit
  • Financial Project Number for charge (for items valued over £150,000)

The cover is now subject to a £100 excess applicable to each and every claim. Requests to cover items over £150,000 are likely to incur an additional charge so please allow up to 5 working days for processing.

Please ensure that the university is responsible for insuring the goods. If the terms of transit require the insurance to be arranged by the transit company or the third party delivering or receiving the goods, the insurance cover won't operate.
