Is your knife collection insured?

Weekend Edition

Being broken into is no laughing matter. We have all heard nightmare stories of knife collections being stolen, either from the collector’s home or car.

I know the last thing folks want to pay for is more insurance, but if you were to need it- you’ll wish you had it. And, while I am not an insurance expert, I know that most homeowner’s policies do not cover valuables unless they are within the limits, or are scheduled in the policy, and even then probably won’t cover the knives when off the property.

Here’s what I found that may be helpful-

And while this information was taken from the insurance company I use, I encourage you to check it out for yourself.  There are firms out there that specialize in collectibles.

Insurance is one of those things- if you don’t need it, it seemed like a waste, but if you did, you were glad you had it.

  1. I talked to my State Farm agent about what is my coverage for my knife collection and could not get a stright answer. I talked to two other insurance companies that had booths at the county fair, and again, double talk. I wish I knew the names of the insurance company that covers collections.
