Cover We Provide

Art insurance is unlike any other class of insurance. Unlike most cover - which focuses on depreciating assets, low cost of claims, replacement, scrapping, etc – art, uniquely, involves appreciating assets and, therefore, demands an equally unique solution. Since items cannot be replaced – only repaired or restored – Artinsure’s objective is to put our clients back in the same financial position they were in before the loss and we provide the following cover:

  • Full cover for accidental damage and theft
  • Agreed value
  • Tailored basis of valuation
  • Depreciation recognition following damage
  • Defective title cover
  • Transit and away from premises cover
  • New acquisition cover
  • Buy back option in the event of item recovery
  • Recognition of pairs and sets
  • Temporary storage
  • Access to professional restorers and appraisers
  • Entrustments to third parties

Note: To be fully compensated in the event of a claim, items must be professionally valued and separately listed at the outset.
