As a fine art collector, my collection is my absolute pride and joy. Travel is my second passion, following collecting rare and unique pieces of art, and they often go hand in hand. I find myself having mini anxiety attacks whenever I’m moving house or my domestic help seems distracted when cleaning around my collection. So I finally decided to bite the bullet and get art insurance!
Rates and prices
Premium rates can be expected when insuring premium products. I didn’t want to opt for a cheaper policy with an amateur company because you can’t take that type of risk when it comes to insurance. I was at the bottom of a long list of distinguished clients ranging from private art collectors and dealers to museums and exhibitions. Consider investing in ArtPlus with AXA. This includes your jewellery, in addition to fine art, and provides travel and domestic emergency cover.
AXA’s insurance policy was comprehensive and covered my fine art collection anywhere in the world. It skipped the administrative hassle of having to register for the acquisition of new products to my collection by instantly covering them too. Collectors who purchase vintage art can enjoy some peace of mind knowing that AXA will also cover restoration and repair charges.
Speed of service and claims
AXA’s claims collection department is highly professional and proficient. They extended their apologies for my situation, and organised my insurance immediately. I didn’t encounter any hiccups along the way, and the accident report they sent over was immensely detailed. I felt secure with AXA, and would highly recommend it to fellow art collection in the UAE.
I enjoyed a long chat with AXA’s insurance agent. I approached him with several questions, and received informed and detailed answers in response. The insurance company is prompt to revert back to you over email too, and this only strengthened my trust in them. While the website has an automatic quote generator, I would have appreciated a live admin chat tool too.
