Gallery Insurance

Gallery Insurance

The business of buying and selling art involves very specific risk exposures – which can change even from hour to hour as the work is installed, uninstalled, handled and shipped worldwide or even played (in the case of instruments)! 

We understand that art galleries and dealers need an insurance provider who is easy to communicate with, and who can respond swiftly and with flexibility.

La Playa Fine Art can help with:

  • Property: inventory, loaned items & objects being delivered
  • Blanket coverage for approved locations
  • Enhancements including art fair/trade show coverage, bailee legal liability coverage, art reference library coverage
  • Building, business property and general liabilities
  • Event coverage for private views, concerts, readings, and receptions

Coverage includes:

  • Public Liability
  • Bailee legal liability coverage
  • Business Property & Office Equipment
  • Building Coverage & Systems Breakdown
  • Identity Recovery Coverage
  • Business Income & Extra Expense ('Actual Loss Sustained' basis)
  • Motor Coverage
  • Employer's Liability
  • Employment Practices Liability
  • Crime Coverage

Private or public, profit or non-profit, and whatever medium is your forte – we’ll support you with expert advice and specialist coverage so that when crunch time comes, your claim is paid.

  1. A dedicated adviser so you can speak to the same person each time
  2. Careful listening to really understand your needs and priorities
  3. As much help as you need with completing forms to provide risk information
  4. A discreet and complimentary appraisal* of your property to assess the risks and ensure you have the right cover where you need it
  5. An independent market review - so you don’t have to shop around comparing policies, cover limits, risks covered and smallprint exclusions
  6. Careful monitoring of the insurers’ financial strength, claims and customer service
  7. An independent recommendation of the best policy for you - and, importantly, why
  8. Specialist policy wordings from underwriters who have demonstrated excellence and deep understanding of your risk exposures. We have analysed a wide range of policy wordings and have selected only the best for our panel. Our advisers have a deep working knowledge of these policies 
  9. An intelligently designed portfolio of protection across multiple asset classes and territories
  10. Advice on how best to manage your risks - to keep you safe but also to keep insurance costs down
  11. Expert guidance on valuations, security and risk management, and connecting you with specialist advisers and suppliers
  12. Direct phone, mobile and email access to your adviser for questions and advice. We aim to respond to emails within 60 minutes
  13. Policy documents emailed to you - no logins and passwords to remember
  14. An advocate beside you if you make a claim - thinking laterally to mitigate the impact, making useful connections to get you back up and running; driving through to a swift and fair financial settlement
