Hi guys.

Need to send something to a fellow carb user who has requested that I get insurance cover for the shipping process.

Which courier is the best to go with for this?

Thanks.

If it's a second hand item then you are paying for literally nothing. Shipping insurance only applies to brand new items, if it's brand new you need to produce a commercial invoice.

Any shipper will gladly take your money but in the event something happens, they will give you wuuu shem and end the call.

This is inaccurate. Yes, some couriers have shitty policies but with others, a used item can be insured against theft but not any damages. Pics and an invoice (not commercial) need to be provided before shipping. It remains your responsibility to package it safely.
