Millions of Americans choose to collect some sort of artifact. It is nice to spend years collecting an item, and look back on all of the memories associated with what it took to find them! If you are a collector of coins, baseball cards, stamps, or anything else, have you taken the time to think about getting the proper insurance? Some collections can total thousands of dollars, or more! You should do all you can to make sure your hard work, and money is protected. Here are the steps you should follow to make sure your collector’s item is appropriately covered:
- Get in touch with a trusted insurance representative. If you are not sure where to find one, speak with your friends and family about their pleasant insurance experiences, or contact the All Nevada Insurance website.
- Next, you will want to take your items to get appraised! If you collect baseball cards, you should find a sports memorabilia specialist. If you collect coins, you should take them to a coin expert! It all depends on the type of item you collect. The goal is to determine how much your collection is worth.
- Ask your agent what information they will need from your appraiser. They will need documentation of the collection’s value.
- Consider adding a collectibles policy to your homeowner’s insurance policy. This way, you do not need to purchase an entirely new insurance policy.
