About Route Insurance-
Route is a third-party service for tracking and insuring domestic and international shipments we are happy to offer to our customers. Route Insurance protects your entire order from disappointing shipping mishaps like damage, loss, or theft. You’ll note that it is applied automatically to your cart with each purchase through www.kinksandquirks.com By deselecting (deleting) Route from your cart, Quirks is no longer responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items associated with your order. Route is extremely affordable, just a small percentage of your order protects its entire value. We have had excellent feedback and experience working with Route, so please keep this option selected at checkout to protect your purchase.
*After you’ve placed your order from Quirks, you will recieve a second email from Route with your Route ID, details of your coverage and additional tracking features. Please keep this email handy as it will make submitting any damage claims easier if needed. If you do not see a message from Route shortly after your order confirmation, please check your spam folder.
*Additionally you’ll also receive access to Route's free mobile app where you can visually track all of your online orders in one place, in REAL TIME! So you never have to wonder where your order is. We highly recommend downloading it, as many independent retailers use this service and it puts all of Route’s services in one, easy to manage place.
Claiming Damages via Route-
When you receive your shipment, please check its condition immediately. Your goods are always carefully packed but if they have suffered any damage along the way you can file an easy claim via Route’s website or app. It’s as simple as a few multiple choice questions and sending a photo if needed!
*Please note, often it is easy to overlook small damage, scuffs or impacts inflicted on boxes during transit… it is VERY IMPORTANT to note there was damage to your shipping box or envelop (no matter how small) or Route will not honor a damage claim.
*Route may want to inspect all articles for insurance reimbursement. Please note that claims may not be honored if this procedure has not been followed. Keep all packing and damaged items until your claim has been resolved and closed.
