What Musical Instrument Insurance Covers
Our Musical Instrument Insurance provides "All Risk" worldwide coverage on a valued replacement basis. That means if your instrument is damaged or stolen anywhere in the world, we will reimburse you for the cost of replacement up to the limit of insurance for your instrument.
Appraised or Replacement Value
You set the amount of insurance for each musical instrument (including attachments), when you complete your application. This is the appraised value of the instrument or the current replacement value.
Newly Acquired Instruments
Our automatic acquisition clause specifically pertains to newly acquired instruments. Upon acquisition, you have 30 days to report the value of the instrument. Until then, the maximum available coverage is $50,000.00.
Our substitution clause provides coverage (if there is none at the time) for any instrument obtained temporarily while your insured instrument is in for repairs. In this instance, the limit of insurance is equal to your instrument that is being repaired.
If you borrow an instrument, you are automatically covered for up to $20,000; providing you notify us within 48 hours of the time you take possession of the borrowed instrument.
Extra Expense Rental
If your instrument is subject to a claim caused by an insured coverage and you require a similar valued instrument to continue your work, your policy will extend to cover the rental of a similar instrument up to a maximum of $7,500.
Special Basis of Settlement Coverage
Your Musical Instrument Insurance may also be extended to cover:
a) Loss in value due to affected playing qualities of your instrument following repairs of damage after an insured loss. The policy pays the difference between the appraised value of your repaired instrument and the appraised value prior to damage.
b) Difference in value if your damaged instrument is replaced and the replaced instrument is appraised less than the damaged instrument was appraised prior to loss.
For this special extension to apply, an appraisal of your instrument by an independent appraiser must be done within 36 Months of the policy renewal date.
Each claim for instrument loss or damage is subject to a $500 deductible. Higher deductibles are available at reduced premiums. Please contact our office at 1-800-665-8990 for details.
Your policy includes liability coverage for property damage or bodily injury to a third party if you are held liable in your profession as a musician.
