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.

-Never leave musical instruments visible in an unattended vehicle. Always place instruments in the trunk and lock the vehicle.

-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 our firm: Front Row Insurance Brokers.
