It’s the hero at the center of the story that inspires you to collect your comic books. We get it. Collectibles Insurance Services was founded by collectors, for collectors. It’s all we do. In fact, you might say that we’re the superheroes of specialized comic book insurance for a comic book collection of any size.
But while securing that prized Golden, Silver, Bronze Age or Modern comic book likely took significant time, energy and money, your insurance to protect it shouldn’t. That’s why our process is fast and easy and coverage is comprehensive and affordable. So you can get back to doing what you enjoy most – finding that next prized comic book to add to your collection.
- Accidental Breakage
- Flood (except in Zones A & V)
- Loss in the Mail
- Natural Disasters
- Other causes of loss, unless specifically excluded from the policy (see exclusions)
Coverage at home and away
- Travel – Transit coverage protects collectible property that is temporarily away from the scheduled location, subject to the policy sublimit.
- Exhibitions – If you’re at a scheduled exhibition, show or display coverage is provided for your collection up to the policy limit – including travel and shipping to and from the event.
- Storage Facilities – For an additional premium, we offer optional insurance coverage for collectibles kept in a public storage facility.
More affordable rates
Typically, you will pay less than it would cost to schedule the same items under a homeowners policy.
Less paperwork and red tape
Unlike the average homeowners insurance company, we do not require a schedule or appraisal for most items; however, you are responsible for maintaining your own inventory for insurance purposes (in the event of loss). The only exceptions are individual items or sets valued over $25,000 apiece, which would have to be scheduled.
We’re proven and trusted
We have been protecting collections like yours since 1966. And all coverage is provided by a carrier with a group rating of “A” (Excellent) by AM Best – the leading rating agency for the insurance industry.
Deductibles starting at $0
Deductibles start at $0 for collector policies that cover comic books. We provide coverage for the market value of your collection for losses in excess of $50. All dealer policies have a $200 deductible.
Insurance that grows with your collectibles
Collections tend to grow, so your comic book insurance policy can be adjusted to include any additions to your comic book collection.
You may select “Automatic Monthly Increase” as optional coverage to be added to your policy for new acquisitions and appreciation of your existing comic book collection. Selecting this coverage will apply a monthly automatic coverage increase of 1% in coverage, up to a maximum of $1 million.
We provide coverage for dealers, too
If you want to protect your dealer inventory and your clients’ collections of comic books, for which you are responsible, we also offer special Dealers Insurance.
Superior customer service
Our company was started by collectors, so it’s only natural that we would pay attention to your interests and needs when it comes to comic book insurance. And that our customer service would always be geared to the collector’s point of view.
Prompt and personal claim service
As experienced specialists in collectibles, our adjusters understand the value and importance of your comic books to you. That’s why, should you have a claim, they make every effort to make sure it is settled as quickly and completely as possible.
