Today, many people use the postal service. To receive or send a letter, a parcel is a procedure that has not lost its relevance over time. A valuable parcel, as well as a registered letter, has certain rules for sending (a list of items that are allowed to be sent) and acceptable weight limits. You can use the services of the Russian Post on the territory of the Russian Federation.

What is this

Declared value is a guarantee that the sent package will reach the recipient and its contents will be preserved. Most often, valuable parcels are those in which expensive equipment is invested - mobile phones, cameras, laptops, tablets. In this case, declaring the value of the shipment is a prerequisite. For valuable parcels and goods, the transport company and the post office are responsible. In addition, letters and parcels are financially protected against damage and loss.

If the deadlines are violateddelivery of valuable items or their loss, damage, the sender has the right to demand compensation at the post office. Send valuable items only from the post office. They must be registered.

The value is assigned by the sender. The postal workers indicate the amount on the envelope, package or packaging, as well as other information. The cost is indicated in figures and in words. For sending, the post office charges a commission, which is four percent of the value. The commission for express EMS is less - only one percent. If a valuable parcel is sent cash on delivery, an inventory must be attached.

How to send

Send a parcel with a declared value should be at the post office. Operators accept parcels, packages and letters properly designed. The parcel must correspond to the dimensions, weight, value and not contain items prohibited for shipment. Before sending the parcel, it must be properly packaged.

Standard packaging has empty fields where you should enter the recipient's address and other information about the shipment (the amount of value and cash on delivery). The sender and recipient data looks like this:

  • Last name, first name, middle name.
