Whether you trade from home, from a shop or an antiques centre, we have cover to suit your needs. Specialist wordings have been written with you in mind so that you can be confident in the cover chosen.
We have years of experience in insuring dealers in art and antiques. We will make it as easy as possible to obtain a quote and we can offer assistance and advice along the way.
Cover is available for your stock (including worldwide transit), business contents, interruption to the business following an insured event, buildings and your legal liability to the public and your employees.
As a BADA (British Antique Dealers’ Association) recommended service provider, we are best placed to assist businesses who trade in art and antiques. We can offer cover (available through our subsidiary) for a range of trades and our policies are designed specifically to meet your needs.
For auctioneers operating in the art and antiques sector, we can arrange specialist cover as we have done for many provincial firms.
We know that your stock is mainly that which is held on behalf of your vendors and buyers. That’s why our specialist policy allows you to insure that stock on their behalf, reducing hassle and protecting you in the event of damage or theft.
We can even find you professional indemnity cover within the same policy with no long, complicated forms. If you provide any kind of advice regarding valuation of items, this cover is essential. We will make it as easy as possible to obtain a quote.
In the event that something goes wrong, we will be on hand to assist you in making a claim so that the matter can be settled as swiftly and as fairly as possible.
For one-off exhibitions, we can arrange short-term cover to protect the collection against damage and theft. Often, finding this type of cover can be especially difficult and not all insurers understand the risks involved. Given a price list, we can arrange cover on an agreed value basis with our underwriters.
Just one short form and we can obtain a straightforward quote. Cover is arranged on the widest basis possible and we will be there to help if damage occurs; helping you to satisfy the demands of the owner(s) of the affected pieces. Contact us today to see what we can do for you.
A bespoke policy for fine art and antiques goods in transit cover is available through our website: transit2insure.com
You can insure consignments on a ‘pay as you go’ basis if you need temporary cover worldwide.
Quotes can be obtained instantly and can be paid for with a credit or debit card. No matter what time of day, or day of the week, our website is available 24/7 for you to use.
