There are 3 methods for calculating the insurance indemnity;
If there is no provision in the policy for the calculation of insurance compensation, the compensation value (market value) at the time of insuring the insured thing is taken as basis. However, the insured and the insurer can agree on the issuance of the policy over the replacement value (new value). In this case, it is clearly stated in the policy that the policy is issued over the replacement cost (new value).
In the policies issued on the basis of the market value principle, the indemnities, ageing, wearing and tearing of the properties under the coverage are deducted from the compensation payments and the deductions from the other reasons are made and if any difference, the distinctive efficiency and quality differences of the new ones are deducted from the compensation. In the case of the policies which are issued according to the new value (replacement cost of the new insurance, including transportation, montage, customs, tax, due, charges), the compensation payments of the assets included in the scope of the coverage are under the following conditions;
– The substitution rate based on the cost of reconstruction or purchase of the insured item at the place and date of the insured shall be based on the maximum rate stated in the policy for the obligation of ageing, wearing and tearing (use) or age are not exceeded. However, the insurer reserves the right to deduct from insufficient insurance, salvage and distinctive technology.
– In case the maximum rate stated in the policy for the share of ageing, wearing and tearing (use) or age is exceeded, the market value of the compensation value is taken into account.
A third method is based on agreed values. During the contracting of the insurance contract or during the coverage of insurances, if the insured property is determined by the unanimously chosen experts and insured by the insurance of the fixed installation, machines, fixtures or home goods and the insurer is unanimous, then no objection can be made on the account of the compensation in case of the occurrence of the risk.
The value list to be determined for the contracts to be concluded on the basis of the agreed value is valid for a maximum of one year insurance period.
The cost of the expertise belongs to the party requesting the contract on the basis of agreed value.
Contracts cannot be contracted on commercial commodity.
The insured must report it to the insurer. The insured pays the value of what is found to the insurer and takes it or transfers the property of what is found to the insurer. In the case of withdrawal, if there is a loss of property due to the stolen property, the insurer has to pay the damage.
The insurer must pay the previously determined indemnity within 30 days from the date of receipt of the information and documents determining the realization of the risk.
Within the term of the contract, if the beneficiary or the status of possession change (except for death), the insurance contract will be null and void. The premium up to the date on which the cancellation of the policy is valid is calculated on a daily basis and the premium for the remaining period is awarded to the new beneficiary.

In case of death, the insurer must notify the insured within 15 days of receipt of the new insured person.

It is not possible to take out the theft indemnity only; the theft insurance is an insurance coverage that can be purchased in addition to the property insurances such as fire and engineering.
There is no legal requirement to take out a shipping insurance. However, shipping insurances have been rendered a financial obligation due to the search of the banks for insurance in the case of commodity shipping (cargo) insurances, the high exposed exposures in boat insurances and the the insurance coverage desire of mortgage creditors.
Shipping insurances are international. In the case of insurance for foreign trading (purchase or sell), it is necessary for either the buyer or the seller to agree on a standardized and internationally accepted insurance, since one of the parties to the sales contract will be foreign. On the other hand, the same obligation in boat insurances arises from foreign third parties (ship, port authority, etc.), which may be addressed during the operation of the craft. Therefore, load and boat clause sets prepared by the Institute of London Underwriters, which have been accepted and implemented all over the world, are added to the shipping insurance policy as a special condition in our country as well as in many countries.
The factors that play a role in the pricing of commodity shipping (cargo) insurances can be categorized in four;
• Type of goods, packaging, mode of transport.
• Voyage.
• Means of transport.
• Scope of coverage.
We can summarize the factors that play a role in the pricing of boat insurance in five parts;
