When are insurance costs charged?

The insurance costs are billed on a monthly basis to the User’s wallet. Premium insurance cost runs anywhere from $ 12 up to $ 140 per container for the first 60 days, depending on container type. The first 60 days start from the container pickup datePost 60 days, the insurance is billed daily until the empty return of the container. The daily insurance rate post the first 60 days can vary anywhere between $0.21 up to  $3 depending on container type.

The complete Damage Protection insurance, including individual container rates and other details, can be found in our Insurance Policy Scheme

Upon damage approval by the insurance surveyor, the damage amounts are processed by xChange. In case both parties are xChange members the revised total estimate is settled through the wallet immediately. Following, the refund amounts are approved and added to the wallet of the insured party.

The total claim amount is usually settled completely with the accepted refund and your xChange DPP.
