Can self-packed boxes be insured?

 In

Yes, but only up to $300 each, only for loss and theft, and only if you send us value and list of contents of each box (eg. books, clothes, etc.). To insure for damage, not only loss, leave them unsealed, so packers can inspect, repack as necessary, seal, and mark them “CP” (carrier-packed) instead of “PBO” packed-by-owner. That costs extra if your shipment is not full-pack.
