NCIX Shipping - Opinions on shipping insurance?

I've bought some stuff, got the 10 dollar gift card for free shipping... I also declined the shipping insurance. Starting to wonder if they used UPS or Purolator. Sometimes i worry that ups will throw the box to my porch or leave it at the door. What do you folks do? Also would I be shitt outta luck if UPS did one of the above and my package was damaged or stolen?

Also, your opinions on shipping insurance in general is appreciated!

For the pittance the insurance will cost you I can't see why you wouldn't get it but that is just my opinion...

It is the responsibility of the seller to make sure the buyer receives the items.
If the items you received are damaged, fake, stolen, lost you have every right to file for chargeback.
Shipping insurance is a scam to me.
I am paying for items, and want them delivered

I would like to hear you argue that in small claims court! ;)

I will let Visa handle that.
As far as I am concerned, I paid for items using VISA, but did not get them.
That's fraud. If NCIX can not provide proof of delivery (a.k.a. the signature), then the item was not delivered.

It's not my problem package was left at the door even when it clearly says Signature Required

do all ncix packages say signature required?

Also, what about damages during the shipping phase?

But you paid for non-damaged items, right?
I know what I say might seem arrogant and silly, but people have to understand their rights as a buyer.
You pay for fully working item.
You either not get the items, or you get them damaged...both of which cases are covered under chargeback's policy.

Courts?
On what grounds will NCIX bring me to court?
I've paid for item but received nothing.
They will have absolutely no grounds to bring anyone to court for doing chargeback.

VISA will ask for proof from NCIX stating that the item was delivered.

[QUOTE]Shipping & Risks during Shipping

When products are shipped to you by common carrier, NCIX.com's liability to you for breakage and/or non-delivery of the products by the common carrier to you will be limited by the limits of liability provided by the common carrier's terms and conditions of carriage. You may wish to purchase insurance from loss or breakage during carriage for full insurable value of the products you have ordered by making the appropriate requests when placing your order with NCIX.com.[/QUOTE]

Honestly, do you expect NCIX to have complete control over what happens with the carrier? If you purchase from NCIX, then you agree to their terms of service.

I don't understand the whole 'pay insurance' for delivery. It's part of the delivery companies JOB to deliver on time, to make sure the receiver gets it and that it's not broken. You shouldn't pay for a SERVICE that should be done CORRECTLY in the first place. Everyone is using the 'insurance' method instead of try to get better which will reduce the problems and doing the job correctly has it should be done.

And NCIX agrees to the credit card's charge-back policy :razz:

I just purchased a monitor off them.

For insurance I just went with the Express Pixel replacement thingy. For insurance I figured I didn't need it since I got that? Hopefully all works out well.

Also, does anyone know with UPS shipping, if it says "in transit", does it mean its to be delivered today? It had its departure scan last night at 12am to come into the Hamilton depot today I think. Don't know if that means they haven't updated it yet or what.

Thanks
