Why specialty insurance for your valued items?

Typically, many homeowners’ and renters’ policies don’t provide adequate coverage to appropriately cover the full value of a collection, protect newly purchased item or items in-transit.

In the event of a loss, the difference in payouts between a homeowner’s and specialty product is often dramatically different because homeowners’ policies base their payouts on the documented purchase price of an item or offer an actual cash value policy (cost of repair or replace minus depreciation). However, a given item could have been purchased with the goal of amassing a valuable collection that appreciates over time. Prized items like these need to be properly insured.
