Hiscox Arms and Armour insurance has been designed specifically for collectors of antique weaponry, including: swords and other edged weapons, deactivated flint lock and other rifles, powder flasks and books.

This policy also covers antique and collectible armour and a wide range of military tools from throughout the ages.

Our research has shown us that many collectors make the simple mistake of undervaluing their collections for insurance purposes and attempt to cover their pieces on their home insurance policies. Unfortunately, this can lead to you not being correctly covered, making you vulnerable should you need to claim.

Alongside this, many home insurance policies require you to list particularly valuable items separately or make exceptions of them, making getting correct cover even more difficult.

At Hiscox, we specialise in insuring collections. You can value your collection yourself and have the whole thing covered in just minutes if the total value is less than £250,000. We aim to make the process of insuring your collection as simple and hassle-free as possible – get a quote now.

Richard from Cheshire

"My collection has just grown over the years. It got to the stage where I dreaded the annual ritual of having to go around the house listing everything to be included on my annual home and contents policy. To save time, I ended up just renewing without including any new items I’d acquired. Of course, this meant I wasn’t properly insured."

"A friend recommended Hiscox Collections to me and now I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. It is so simple, quick and great value. Instant peace of mind."

"Even though I haven’t needed to speak with anyone at Hiscox about setting up my cover, it’s reassuring to know that my collection is now insured by one of the world’s most respected names."
