Not everything in EvE needs insurance... Why do modules need insuring? Wouldn't insuring modules decrease the value of looting wrecks after a battle?

Insurance is typically an isk faucet, not an isk sink, and as such needs to be balanced with other isk sinks in the game (otherwise there is a potentially unhealthy systematic inflation).

I will insure all of your items at 125% of current jita buy price.

Send me the ISK now and the kill mail when it gets destroyed.

Will deliver replacement parts in 6-8 weeks.

Insurance period is for 3 months from reception of ISK, kill mail must be a ship piloted by you.
