Insurance solutions for the Museum and Gallery Sector can be complex and challenging particularly taking into account the peculiarities presented by Government Indemnity and how this impacts on the National Museum and Gallery Sector. We have therefore developed working relationships with specialist Underwriters to overcome these challenges and to accommodate the very individual needs of Museums and Galleries both National and Independent.
Features available include:
S-Tech have been looking after the insurance interests of the National Museum and Independent Museum Sector for nearly 20 years and have available a dedicated team with specialist knowledge of the sector and a proven track record with Underwriters who also have an in-depth knowledge of the demands and needs of the Sector. Our facilities are designed to accommodate the needs of both the small independent museums and the large National Museum and Gallery sector.
The cover options available include:
Yes, we frequently come across the issue of Government Indemnity and certain exemptions but this does not prevent us from obtaining quotations for you albeit that we would require details of any ‘claims’ that may have been paid or are outstanding in relation to the existing exemption arrangements.
Yes, we can arrange cover for both internal transits within the United Kingdom and also from the United Kingdom to overseas locations where required. As far as the movement of a Collection is concerned we would normally arrange this on an ‘agreed value’ basis to ensure that the compensation payable to you in the event of a loss meets with your expectations. There would however be a need to have some in depth knowledge as to the proposed transportation method and packing method used for any movement of a Collection.
Yes, this would normally be dealt with through the medium of Professional Indemnity Insurance which accommodates the exposures presented by offering advice to third parties and where there is an allegation that the advice given was in some way incorrect or misleading.
Yes, but the standard cover is for forcible and violent entry to and from the premises and would not accommodate theft during opening hours.
