Should Your Collection Be Insured?

This week on The Collectors Show we discuss the pros and cons (mostly pros) of the need to insure collections with Robert Shedd of American Collectors Insurance. Among other things Robert shares with us the difference between a collectors policy and your regular homeowners policy. Also, what in a collection should be insured and what types of collections should be covered. We talk specifically about cars and antique autos, but Robert also educates us about the need to insure things we collect that cannot be replaced. Regardless if you own something that could be in a museum, rare comic books or just collectible plates, if you own something that is meaningful and would be difficult to replace, you owe it to yourself to insure it.

Another fact worth knowing is who determines the value of a collection. American Collectors Insurance relies on experts who know the value of tangible property and can make certain that both the coverage and claim are fairly written.
