  6. Do I need to buy insurance for my shipment and how much does it cost?
    For each USA Domestic Shipment , there is $100 basic declared value (insurance) included FREE OF CHARGE to cover lost or damaged bags during shipment. We recommend that you buy adequate insurance (declared value) to cover the value of your contents during shipping. Each additional $100 in insurance coverage (declared value) cost $1.

  7. What is the risk that my bag(s) could be damaged or lost?
    As with airlines and other commercial transportation, nothing is 100% guaranteed. However, with a Tracking System, a uniquely designed and easy to identified big white shipping plastic container (SPC) and a dedicated staff monitor your shipment, GBS minimizes the chance of loss, damage or theft.
