Most of your personal lines clients don't need you to be faster than a speeding bullet or leap tall buildings in a single bound. But they do need smart insurance protection, and there's one area in which they are particularly vulnerable: jewelry.
If you're protecting your clients' jewelry collections with their homeowners or renters insurance policies, you may be doing them a disservice—even if you've scheduled their most important pieces.
Here are 10 reasons a standalone jewelry insurance policy may provide more agile and powerful protection for your clients:
- Standalone policies may be less expensive, with a $50 minimum premium.
- Standalone jewelry coverage protects HO and renters rates and coverages.
- Standalone jewelry policies offer low or zero deductibles.
- Many HO and renters carriers are not willing to write high-valued schedules.
- Adult children who live with parents should have coverage for their own jewelry.
- Insureds who are between homes—buying, selling or building—may experience unanticipated coverage gaps.
- HO and renters policies typically require listing both domestic partners as insureds.
- HO and renters policies may not include coverage for mysterious disappearance losses.
- HO and renters policies may have strict documentation requirements for replacing custom pieces.
- HO and renters policies may not extend coverage for losses while traveling out of the country.
