Art Insurance - Art Collector

While some general home insurance plans cover artwork, large or valuable collections should be covered by separate art insurance.

Art insurance takes into account the unique nature of the items and should cover all risks of physical loss, damage and theft whether the artworks are at home or in transit.

Collections should be re-valued every few years to ensure an accurate current market value. It is advisable to keep artwork invoices, photographs and documents in a safe place. The right type of insurance will vary for collectors depending on the artworks, the location, security and so on.

Collectors should research the available options, speak to the insurance companies and compare quotes before deciding.
