I'm curious about others experience with insuring your fan collection.  I knew I'd seen a few posts on here regarding insuring fan collections, and did a search which came up with some relevant threads, but most didn't have a lot of specifics.  I then did a Google search for antique and collectible insurance and stumbled across something called the Antiques & Collectibles National Association (which has the AFCA listed on their National Associations & Clubs page).  You'll have to google the Antiques & Collectibles National Association, I can't get the link I had in here to work. Under their Collector Insurance tab, General Collector, they give the criteria for an insurance program under something called the Antiques & Collectibles Insurance Group.  I called the contact number and talked to a most pleasant lady who indicated that the lowest coverage they offer is for $20,000 at an annual premium of around $120 or around $130 for $30K, which doesn't sound unreasonable.
So, what do you think about this sort of insurance, and have you had any experience with these guys or some similar outfit?

Jim

Craig, you're right, I can't get the link to work either, so I removed it after fiddling with it for 20 minutes.  It's probably something simple, but I'm simpler.  Jim

Jim, I have used this insurance for the last five years. It's very easy and isn't horribly expensive. Definitely worth it for the peace of mind.......

Kim told me about the company he recommended a few years ago, he’s correct it’s a great peace of mind inexpensively, all you have to do is provide them with a inventory with values.

Kim, Rick,



Thanks guys, that's the one I was trying to link to!  I downloaded the application for insurance a couple of days ago.  I don't have to worry about any fans over $5K, so it appears I don't need to itemize, but if I do, I've got the list.  I'd never actually done a serious accounting of purchase prices and approximate current values, but I had been keeping records of some eBay and other sales prices for a year or so, and what I paid for fans over the past 20 years.  Now I've got a pretty good spreadsheet with those things, and it's sort of eye opening.  This outfit seems reputable, and the premiums are more reasonable than what I found at a couple of other locations.  So, I'm going to go ahead and get the application for insurance sent in.  Thanks again!


Jim

I've actually only got one fan that would be considered valuable the rest are just run of the mill fans, but as far as other antiques go I have a few things that might be considered valuable like some old tube radios and record players from the 1930s-1960s, a 1st generation Solid State Pioneer SX Series stereo receiver, some 3rd Generation Bose Speakers, several antique clocks and watches and lots of vintage tools that used to belong to my grandfather, but other than that I really don't have anything that one might consider valuable enough to insure.
just my 2 cents worth.
