The Collectibles Policy


Just $75 insures your collection up to $10,000

• Compare this affordable annual premium with the value of your cherished collectibles

• Then consider the broad protection you get with this all-risk, agreed-value coverage

• There is simply no better value anywhere

Homeowners Insurance often has significant coverage limitations that apply to various collections, especially with regard to full value replacement.  The Collectibles policy is affordable and covers most collections in the household.  Claims are paid on an agreed amount basis, and the deductible is $100 per occurrence.  We do not typically require professional appraisals or inventories.

Coverage benefits of a specialty collectibles policy include:

  • Recognition of collection’s full-insured value

  • All-Risk Coverage includes accidental breakage, loss or damage due to fire,
       flood, or other natural disasters, mysterious disappearance, etc 

  • Blanket protection for all the qualifying collections in the household.
       Blanket coverage will protect your entire collection up to a max value of $2,000
       per item, up to a total of $10,000. If $10,000 doesn’t fully cover your collection,
       you may add additional blanket coverage.

  • Individual pieces valued at $2,000 or higher are scheduled on the policy
       and receive coverage for mysterious disappearance at no additional charge

  • Additions to the collection are automatically covered for 30 days
       (up to $2,000 per item)

  • An inflation-guard feature automatically increases the value of scheduled items
       2% each quarter, up to a maximum of 8% per year, at no extra cost.
