What is the difference between Marine Insurance and Trust Shipping Warranty?

"Trust Shipping Warranty" is a warranty guaranteed by Trust Company itself which insures up to the maximum C&F price.
especially the "Extended Shipping Warranty"makes it possible to cover even minor damage and thieveries during transportation.
the "Marine insurance" is a mandatory insurance defined by the international trade term in which all traders must be integrated, it can cover up to 110% of the CIF price in case of a marine accident, but however, it cannot cover minor damage or thieveries during the transportation (in case you don't get the Marine insurance you might not be able to collect the cargo in some instance).

Trust Inspection Certificate

Trust Company's Inspection Certificate is an official document in English that certifies the results of our inspection of the vehicle.
Points of checking are: engine, oil, water, drive shafts, transmission, exterior panels, windows, paintwork, tires, interio, and other areas.
We will send you the Certificate together with the other shipping documents for your car.
To order the Inspection Certificate, check the corresponding box in "Extras and options" when requesting a pro-forma invoice for the vehicle.
Trust's Inspection Certificate costs US $50.
