What is antiques dealer insurance cover?
Antiques dealer insurance cover is a special type of business insurance designed to the needs of an antiques shop. Whether you are an independent antiques dealer, running a small antiques shop, or a large antiques emporium, an antiques dealer insurance policy provides all of the protection you need under a single umbrella. While many of the coverage options required by antiques shop owners are the same as those required by other businesses, many shops have specific needs when it comes to their commercial insurance.
For example, anyone who is working with members of the general public will need to obtain public liability coverage, and anyone who employs staff is required by law to have employer’s liability insurance. As an antiques shop owner, you will also need to safeguard your stock, with products liability, fire and theft, property insurance and many other coverage options designed to protect your business and the irreplaceable antiques in your care. Property protection is particularly vital as it can also cover goods held in trust, which means that if you are entrusted with pieces to restore or sell that don’t belong to you; you still have protection should something go wrong.

Why get an Antiques Dealer Insurance quote off 1st Choice?
Comparison sites are great for personal lines, but with anything commercial you are at high risk of being underinsured. This is because their systems often only give you the price based on the information you have added, potentially without any insurance knowledge. You may have unintentionally not selected something, or maybe inputted the wrong data by mistake, and these errors, although minor, can affect you getting a claim paid out when you need it the most.
1st Choice Insurance can customize your antiques shop insurance policy to meet the needs of your business. You can rest assured that when you take out a commercial insurance policy with us, we will ensure that every T is crossed and I is dotted, so that you have the correct coverage in place and give you peace of mind.
