High End Studio Insurance. Audio Interfaces

High End Studio Insurance.


My home studio insurance is due for renewal. I'm in the UK and was very happy with my previous insurer, Robertson Taylor.

However, they've been taken over by another company who I'm seriously unimpressed with. Value to be insured is £100K. It includes stuff like an Avid S6, HDX1, 16x16 interface, high end mics and outboard etc.

So... Can anyone recommend an alternative, preferably one you've made a claim with. You never know how good an insurer is until you have to make a claim!!!

There was a similar thread in this sub-forum in 2009 but that was seven years ago!!!

Try the broker Hencilla Canworth they are recommended by the Musicians Union.

They use Allianz who are the UK no. 1 instrument/equipment insurer.

Buy your insurance through a broker then (hopefully not) if you have a claim they will represent you and fight any battles for you,
it's worth the little bit extra you'll pay.

It's best to never deal direct with an insurer when it comes to claims.

Motor insurance being an exception.

I'll second Hencilla.

Been with them for years, and they were fantastic when we had major subsidence issues a few years ago. You always deal with the same guy, so it feels very personal.

I have a similar amount insured through New Moon Insurance, and they've always been fantastic.
Cover is handled by Allianz and I have a split between premises only equipment and equipment I take worldwide. Worldwide cover is unattended and there are no restrictions on countries visited.
