Property & Equipment Insurance

Property & Equipment Insurance

The definition of 'property' in the arts and entertainment varies widely - from digital assets to hired-in equipment to props, set, wardrobe, merchandize on tour and sheet music.  We'll guide you on how much to insure for so that you avoid the trap of under-insurance, which could cost you dearly...

What if...

  • You hire-in professional kit that gets damaged during a performance or rehearsal?
  • Your venue is flooded and the wardrobe you hired gets ruined?
  • A musician loses their sheet music while on tour - or worse, their instrument?

What's covered?

  • Any equipment you list - just talk to us about your needs
  • All risks (including accidental damage)
  • No upper limits - you can insure for as much as you like
  • Fraudulent hire cover - if you lend out your kit

Earthquake Cover is normally excluded in some states, so it's important to check whether you need a separate policy.

Flood Insurance hit the headlines after Superstorm Sandy.  We can help you protect your assets and income from losses caused by a flood (which includes seepage and backup of water). If you're are located in a high hazard flood zone, you'll need to purchase the FEMA plan and may even need excess flood coverage too.

We can also help with Crime Insurance, which protects your organization against theft of money by staff - acting alone or in collusion with third parties.
