Why do you need antiques insurance?
Accidents happen. Most insurers don’t provide cover for antiques under a standard home insurance policy. Stanhope provides £15,000 of cover for antiques and art as standard. Above all antiques are most commonly damaged during transit. It may be on the way home from an antique dealer or in transit from one home to another. When your antiques are travelling, they are at the greatest risk of coming to harm.
