Protecting Musical Instruments at Home: Insurance and More

In addition to purchasing professional musical instrument insurance, you can protect your precious instruments by doing the following:

  • Create a safe room in your home. This can be as simple as putting a deadbolt lock on a closet where you store your gear.
  • Purchase high-quality travel cases that protect against impact and moisture. Buy a cable lock and cable your cases together in the safe room.
  • Install an alarm and deadbolt locks on your exterior doors. Use extra long screws for the lock.
  • Purchase low-cost security film and apply it to your windows and exterior French doors. This will slow down entry for a smash and grab thief.
  • If you are selling a musical instrument through Craigslist or some other private forum, always check that the method of payment is legitimate. Meet in a public area.
  • Use a broker that specializes in the music industry, such as Front Row.

We offer instrument insurance for as low as $75 CAD (subject to change) for $5,000 worth of gear with worldwide coverage and free office contents coverage.
