I have Collector's Insurance. The Limit of Insurance for a Fedex shipment is $25,000. Interestingly, the Limit of Insurance for a UPS shipment is $10,000.
$25,000 won't cover the value of many NFA shipments these days, but it's better than nothing or headaches. Maybe it is possible to get a higher shipping Limit of Insurance. And to be fair, I have never filed a claim with Collector's either.
Here's what our FAQ page states about FedEx shipping:
"FedEx: Updated 10 Dec 12 FedEx no longer has the restriction on firearms insurance as previously reported, the current level is $50,000. Questions about shipping via FedEx can be answered here under firearms - http://www.fedex.com...ound/index.html"
RT updated the level of FedEx insurance to $50,000, which is what it was at the time of the above post about shipping (post from several years ago). If it's $25,000 now it was lowered from $50,000, so you'll want to double check the level of insurance in the regulations. Sandman may have checked it and if so maybe can advise.
I was talking about the insurance provided my insurance carrier, Collectibles Insurance, not insurance bought from the shipper. People were reporting that insurance from the shipper was proving worthless.
