Route Shipping Assurance

Customers will now be able to purchase Route Package Protection for their orders!


Route offers affordable and convenient shipping insurance. Their package protection will cover lost, stolen, or items damaged during transit. This is an optional selection at checkout, and can provide an extra level of reassurance for customers concerned about protecting their packages.

Q: When can I file a claim? (Click here for more detailed information)

Lost Packages

  • Route will consider packages as lost after 7 days without a tracking update for domestic shipments (20 days for international shipments) and within 30 days from the last checkpoint. You may file a claim if enough time has been allowed for the delivery to place and it is well past the expected delivery date.

Damaged Items

  • If the customer receives a damaged, unusable, or otherwise unacceptable condition, we recommend that you file a claim as soon as possible. Please be sure to include pictures of the item(s) and the packaging. Damaged claims must be filed within 15 days from the date the package has been marked as delivered.

Stolen Packages

  • Stolen claims must be filed within 15 days from the date it was marked delivered. Route will consider packages marked "Delivered" and not received as stolen. However, we recommend allowing up to 5 days from the day the package was marked delivered before filing a claim as it is not uncommon for packages to be scanned as delivered but not show up for a few days. It is up to Route's discretion whether the claim will require a police report.

Q: Does Route cover packages marked Return To Sender?

Route does not cover packages labeled Return To Sender as the package has been placed in transit back to us. More information on how we process returned packages can be found here.


Q: What are Route's terms and conditions?
