Protect what you collect. Whether a serious investor or the casual collector who has inherited property, protecting and insuring your items can be a confusing task–where even the most basic of questions and concerns become daunting:
- What items are covered by my homeowners or renters insurance and which risks am I protected against?
- Do I need an appraisal for some or all of my collection, and what if I add pieces to my collection or items increase in value?
- What if I have several collections–will my insurance pay if items are damaged or destroyed?

Homeowners Cost & Coverage Comparison
You do the math: SDBIC’s insurance covers far more and costs significantly less than any comparable homeowners’ policy you can find in the market today. Insuring valuables under your homeowner’s policy requires full disclosure of the items, as well as costly, inconvenient appraisals, and upon a loss you also pay a deductible.
Plus, whether your valuables are kept at home or stored in a safe deposit box, homeowners oftentimes does not provide the full protection one assumes. For example, off-premise flooding is not covered with many homeowners’ policies.
With SDBIC there are NO disclosures, appraisals or deductibles. SDBIC also covers damage due to flooding.
