What is art gallery insurance cover?
Art gallery insurance cover is a special type of business insurance tailored to the needs of art galleries. Whether you are an art dealer, running a small art or photography studio, a picture framer, or a large art centre, a gallery insurance policy provides all of the protection you need under a single umbrella. While many of the coverage options required by gallery owners are the same as those required by other businesses, many galleries have specific needs when it comes to their business insurance.
For example, anyone who is working with members of the general public will need to obtain public liability coverage, and anyone who employs gallery staff is required by law to have employer’s liability insurance. As a gallery owner, you will also need protection for your stock, with products liability, fire and theft, property insurance and many other coverage options designed to protect your business and irreplaceable artwork in your care. Property protection is particularly important as it can also cover goods held in trust, which means that if you are entrusted with artwork to frame or sell that doesn’t belong to you; you still have protection should something go wrong.

Why get an Art Gallery Insurance quote off 1st Choice?
Comparison sites are great for personal lines, but with anything business 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 checked something, or maybe inputted the wrong information by mistake, and these errors, although minor, can affect you getting a claim paid out when you need it the most.
Here at 1st Choice Insurance, we can tailor your gallery insurance policy to meet the needs of your business.
