Sure John Manship used to provide the service. Insurance companies usually only accept the valuation from a reputable dealer if it is quite valuable. Everything has to be logged too.

Sure I read on another topic (on forum), that someones insurers wouldn't pay out, because the records weren't photographed!  I could've misred it tho'.

I looked into this a while ago and to properly insure a collection, the cost was totally prohibitive. Even with a valuation from someone such as JM, all records insured had to be individually photographed or scanned, and anything over a certain value (can't remember now but may have been as around the £250 mark) had to have an individual valuation. Just the same as having an expensive piece of jewellry I guess.

I got round this for a while by keeping my most valuable sounds in a box in the safe (we had a pub so a safe was part of the set up) and the total contents were insured for a specific amount. This wasn't all that expensive and wouldn't have mattered if it was a record, a watch or cash. Never had to claim though so I dont know what the upshot would have been.

Sorry its not that helpful, but it's one way round the problem (if you have a safe that is !)

Unfortunatley wolves, even when hungry make un-ideal guard dogs and you'd be as likley a victim when you returned to your box...

Simply paint your record box red and place it on top of a pole thereby disguising it as a dog (or wolf) poo bin. No self respecting crim would place their hands in there.

I can think of one or two DJs who I would specifically like to recomend this kind of insurance to! :)

Given the shit that some DJs fill their boxes with, that would be pretty ironic. :)

I've posted on this before, actually. You can get insurance which is reasonably priced. Anyone interested PM me.

cheers

had a dig and

here's clip of what Dan posted earlier

I'm happy to put people in touch with a specialist insurance company I use if anyone is interested. I wouldn't consider myself a major collector by any means but it's still been worth doing for me from both burglary and fire points-of-view (imagine the dilemma...the house is on fire and it's your Fascinators or your missus...ummm...errr.....sorry luv.) Just gives you (and your wife) peace of mind.
