Shipping Insurance for SFU Equipment

The department is responsible for insuring its own equipment or materials during shipping. Only in very limited circumstances on a case-by-case basis would Risk Management get involved in shipping insurance on equipment or materials. The university's property insurance does cover equipment in transit, but it is designed for higher-priced items since the deductible is $25,000 to $50,000. Procurement Services may be able to help you with shipping and insurance arrangements. Please take photographs of the equipment or materials before shipment.
