"Much better to self-insure, meaning estimate breakage and loss, and work it into your shipping costs." = i concur!
the loopholes and hassles and time sux on getting reimbursed are usually not worth it. imo, if the items or orders are over ~$850 on average, you cross back into the territory where you need experience to judge whether insurance or self-insure is better - your insurer and carriers determine which is better on those high rangers.
