Transport rules about sending watches by courier or post
The factors that determine if a watch is suitable for shipping is its valued price and the materials it is made of. Most courier companies determine a threshold for the items they allow to be transported, which usually corresponds to the insurance coverage available. If your item falls below this threshold and is not considered valuable or fragile, it will be allowed for shipping. However, if your item exceeds the threshold value, you should be aware that you will be sending this watch at your own risk, and the shipping insurance will not be applicable.
