Founded by a stamp collector
Stamp Collection Insurance
Collectibles Insurance Services was founded by an avid collector of stamps, so we have a special appreciation of the passion that the world of stamps inspires — from such classics as the Inverted Jenny, the Scott #1 5-cent Benjamin Franklin, Pan-American Inverts, Prexy stamps, Washington Franklins, and the Zep Set — to the rarities and finds of tomorrow.
As we’ve helped provide insurance for stamp collectors for nearly 50 years, we know how much you value your collection. That’s why we provide equally valuable features in coverage.
Stamp Collectors Comprehensive Insurance Coverage
- 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)
Stamp Insurance 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 collectibles 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
We offer insurance policies with affordable coverage for the collector compared to other collectibles insurance policies! Typically, the cost for a policy we offer is less than it would cost to schedule the same items under a homeowners insurance policy.
Less Paperwork and Red Tape
Unlike homeowners coverage, we do not require a schedule or appraisal for most items; however, you are responsible for maintaining your own inventory of your collection 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 items.
We’re Proven and Trusted
The policies we offer are proven and trusted! We have been providing insurance for stamp collections like yours since 1966. And all insurance 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. We provide stamp insurance coverage for the market value of your collectibles 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 policy can be adjusted to include any new purchases that you add to your collection.
You may select “Automatic Monthly Increase” as optional extra coverage to be added to your policy for new acquisitions and appreciation of your existing collectibles. 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’ private collections, 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 pay attention to your interests and needs. 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 stamp collections, our adjusters understand the value and importance of your collection. That’s why, should you have a claim, they make every effort to make sure it is settled as quickly and completely as possible.
