Good/fair priced instrument Insurers?
      #1046711 - 05/05/13 05:41 PM
Had a quick search on here. Found nothing. Any links for places you'd recommend for good price/service? Or a different forum that'd help me?
Ta, Thanks.
Tony

I've always insured through musicguard. Whether or not you consider them a good price is really down to what you expect. If you've got expensive gear that you use for gigging, then it won't be cheap. It really depends on how screwed you'll be if something get pinched or damaged.

A quick check: musicguard will do £10,000 insurance, with half of that leaving "home" at any one time, for around £220.

I've been with G M Imber for years.

Never had to claim (thankfully) but always have been helpful on the phone and emails.

Always worth getting a quote from Victor Knight in Londinium.

The free cover that comes with Musicians Union membership is always a good voluntary excess that commercial companies like.

Thanks all so much. Just what I needed. As my (admittedly brief) forum search uncovered nothing perhaps making this a sticky would help other people (bozos) like me?

Anymore please share Thanks again.
Tony
