What is Green Package Protection ROUTE? Our Full Premium Protection for your orders!

As you know - or expect if you never ordered with us before - we take very good care in packaging your order. But once we gave your order over to the carrier it is literally out of our hands. 

And we learned that these days carrier is under enormous stress from an ever-growing amount of online orders. So they are delivering more boxes every day than ever before. And with that, it happens that they make errors, or handle the packages roughly. We wish if a box is visibly damaged that they would not deliver it to you and make an insurance claim themself. But they deliver it right away, even when they dropped it in front of the house. But rough carrier handling that leads to damaged items inside your box isn't the only scare with online orders. Porch pirates are around every town these days hoping you ordered a full gold nugget and it is in that box. So they grasp it - steal it. Your order might be marked as delivered - but it is not there. If the latter has happened. Please wait at least another 24 hours, a few carriers are scanning items as delivered, even when they are not - and deliver them the next day. As we said they are under enormous pressure to deliver on time and use this trick sometimes.

With all the issues above we have looked into the market and found a great partner in Route. And we are offering Premium Protection against all those problems. At the checkout, you have the option to accept the Route Coverage and we are happy to explain more about it here.

One important heads-up - if you have damaged goods in your delivery and are protected via our Insurance please take pictures of the box and the damaged goods - you need that to file a claim!

Headsup - if you decided to opt out of Premium Protection you find more information about how to handle damages here.
