Safeguarding Your Philately Business

Stamp dealers, also known as philatelic dealers, play a crucial role in the world of philately by facilitating the exchange of stamps among collectors and philatelists. Stamp dealers vary in size and specialisation, and they offer a wide range of services to the trade, collectors and enthusiasts.

Protection Against Unforeseen Events

Accidents happen. Whether it’s a fire or flood, theft, burst pipe, accidental damage or loss or damage in transit, the unforeseen can have a catastrophic impact on your business. 

Arranging specialist insurance cover ensures that your business will have the financial resources to recover and to be able to continue offering valuable services to the philatelic sector. Without insurance, your ability to continue trading is at risk.

To obtain the full benefit from your insurance it is important that the sums insured are adequate at all times. If they are inadequate then in the event of a claim the amount payable will be reduced in proportion to the degree of underinsurance. The Property Damage section of the policy is index linked to provide a measure of protection against the effects of inflation. This benefit does not apply to other sections of cover.

It makes sense to review the sums insured regularly, particularly if you have refurbished your premises, purchased new equipment or increased stock levels or staff.  Seek professional advice to ensure that the sums insured are correct.
