Stamp Collection Insurance arranged by Assetsure
Stamp collection Insurance from Assetsure is available from our highly trained sales and support staff who have expert knowledge in providing specialist insurance to cover stamps either on an individual basis or in collections; we can also insure other items related to philately or scripophily.
Insuring your stamp collection
Usually, the home insurer is the first port of call when it comes to covering valuable items such as stamps and, in many cases, this is perfectly possible subject to the individual insurer’s limits and exclusions.
A stamp collection is something that is normally built up and developed over a many years, and as time goes by, it’s easy to lose sight of the total value, the collector can often without realising it be in possession of a very valuable asset.
Whilst that’s a nice position to be in, If that value surpasses the home insurers limit for valuables or collections, you may find yourself not adequately insured.
Thus, for serious collectors, a policy that is both wider in the terms of scope of cover and sum insured limits is required
Stamps are renowned for increasing in value, are actively collected, kit is essential if you are a stamp collector to keep abreast of any increases in value and updated your sums insured accordingly.
Why are we different?
Unlike many insurers or intermediaries, we can offer stamp collection insurance starting with a single stamp. This is ideal for a person just starting a collection or just being in possession of a few valuable items. As you collection grows, you can make alterations to your policy, we only charge you for the insurance, there are no adjustment fees, so if you are a regular buyer of stamps, you can upgrade your policy on a regular basis, and it will be economic to do so.
We would expect your stamps to be kept at your main residence, but we will consider collections that are stored by third parties (for example in a bank safety deposit box) subject to full details being provided at the time of quotation.
The policy we provide also has features and benefits that are not found under a standard home insurance policy wording, and you may find the terms and conditions are a little less onerous as well in terms of the security required to protect your home.
