    Gun collection insurance

    I am thinking about getting an insurance policy for my growing collection of guns. Any suggestions of who to look at? I am talking to Eastern Insurance at the moment.

    Got $$$$$$$? good luck! you'll have to list every gun with the serial numbers. NOT something I would do. My guns are all lost in a horrible boating accident. Terrible, just terrible!

    NRA offers insurance .


    But I use Collectibles Insurance , have for years .

    If you never make a claim it's hard to tell one from another .

    But when I did research them originally , there was a good amount of positive feedback .

    Essentially you are insuring valuables up to a specified $ amount , regardless of what the valuables are .

    Price wise I think they are less expensive than most .

    And you don't have to submit pictures , serial numbers , or such to them .

    Of course , check your Home Owner's policy first to see what coverage they offer in your
    existing policy , if any .

    Eastern has a basic plan that doesn't require individual listing or s/n listing. $35K for the collection. At least that is my understanding at this time. $125 a year and they give NRA members a 5% discount.

    Still fact finding and looking for folks that have real interaction with the insurers.

    K,

    About three years ago, TN Farm Bureau quoted $10.00 cost per $1,000.00 in value, assuming documentation of ownership. At that time, that put me at about four grand per annum. Yowzer!

    I hope you didn't sign up for a long term plan.

    I just compared them to Lockton Affinity (NRA) same coverage, yours is less.... I'm switching when my current policy expires.

    That is unusual. Most homeowner policies only cover 2500 bucks loss.

    I signed up for the NRA coverage and also have homeowners which would cover a couple of my guns. Good records and lots of photos.
