Looking for model insurance? – a few questions to ask first
Insuring models is a specialist business; it is always advisable to use a professional, experienced insurer in models and replicas. From model boat insurance to model flying insurance, with Highworth Insurance Services, there are a number of choices available to you.

Below is a checklist of useful questions to ask yourself and your insurer, before purchasing any type of model insurance:

  • In which locations or territories do you need cover; only in your primary home, just the UK or worldwide?
  • What’s the claim service like? – Do you need to make sure the full value is insured and there won’t be quibbles if the worst happens and you make a claim?
  • What are the security conditions and are they proportionate to the value of the models?
  • What is your insurers position if models are stored in a listed building where planning prohibits the recommended security requirements?
  • Will you need to insure models in transit? If so, just within the UK or worldwide?
  • Will you get instant insurance cover if you purchase a new model or replica?

Highworth Insurance makes high value insurance easy. Please be aware that not all options are available on all policies. We advise you to carefully check your policy summary and policy wording for the exact cover applicable to your circumstances.
