    Posted: 06 January 2009 at 03:57
Em Julho de 2008 eu enviei uma caixa (tamanho 24x27x24 polegadas) com um computador. Este era presente de natal para meu filho. Em Novembro essa caixa foi entregue quase vazia e lacrada pela companhia com uma fita de nylon negra. Quando a recebemos, a caixa estava muito leve e tinha sido cortada pelo fundo e seu conteúdo havia desaparecido. Assim que recebi a notícia, chamei a BR Courier. Me pediram para preencher um formulário de seguro. Uma semana mais tarde, eu os chamei novamente e fui informado que a Brasil Courier não iria se responsabilizar por nada.

In July 2008 I sent a box (size 24x27x24 inches) with a computer. This was a Christmas present for my son. In November the box was delivered nearly empty and sealed by the company with a black nylon strap. When received it, did not notice anything because the box seems to be securely closed. Later, when opened it, the box was very light and had been cut by the bottom and its contents had disappeared. Once I got the news, called the BR Courier. I was asked to fill out a insurance form. A week later, I called again and was informed that Brasil Courier refused to be liable.

Sorry to hear about your lost items.
 
This is why these companies offer optional insurance (at an added cost). Some people do not opt for it either because they think this calls attention to the value of the carton or they do not wish to spend more money. A  lot of people do not list the contents truthfully either, trying to make an end run around Brazilian law or not call attention to full value.
This type of robbery has been a sporadic problem with all of even the larger carriers who provide this service. Anyone shipping by this method is well advised to buy the optional insurance, clearly and honestly list the items, pack the carton well (at least one friend has taken to completely covering every inch of the carton in tape, simulating the plastic wrapping service that some airports have, so it is obvious if the seal is broken), and checking the contents thoroughly at the other end before signing any documents.

That´s not true, the best option is always a good TRANSPORT INSURANCE that will cover  loss and damages. Wink

Even DHL is not perfect and the bigger the company is the bigger the chances packages get lost or missplaced. Ouch

We're talking about U$50, people, insurance on the maximum insurable contents of U$1500 (at least the last time I sent a carton recently) and a shipping cost of U$150-175 (depending on company used) for a carton that holds a 27" TV (that the guys that sell them at the truck rental place in my largely Brazilian community refer to as "the Brazil box" LOL), no weight limit. For 50 bucks, you're covered. As I mentioned above, the only reason not to is if your intent is to cheat somehow or the contents aren't valuable.
