Private Collections


When you've spent time and money creating your private collection of works of art or other collectables, you'll want peace of mind that your collection is properly protected should anything happen. Here at Alan & Thomas, we provide bespoke collectables insurance specifically for private individual collectors.

Many standard home and contents insurance policies may only provide basic cover for collections and the cover may also be somewhat limited in scope, with terms and conditions that do not suit your requirements. There may also be strict limits on the amount you can claim for, which could mean your collection is inadequately insured.

Our expert team of private collections insurance advisers has worked closely with a number of the UK's leading insurers to develop a bespoke scheme that can be tailored to the individual needs of collectors. As we are an independent broker – not tied to any one insurance company – we can offer you extremely competitive premiums whilst ensuring you have the right levels of cover.

We can cover a wide range of collectables including stamps, coins, medals, clocks, watches, autographs, toys, bank notes, art, antiques, period costumes, vintage clothing, books & comics, musical instruments, pottery, ceramics, glass, records, furniture, paintings, sculptures and sports memorabilia.

We provide a free no obligation review and quote to see if we can better your current private collection insurance policy.


Benefits of our Private Collections Insurance can include:

  • Collection cover up to any amount
  • Agreed Value cover
  • Cover for items away from the premises
  • Cover for postal sendings
  • Defective Title cover
  • Cover for depreciation in value following restoration in the event of an insured loss
  • Legal expenses
