As the popularity of antiques-based TV shows testifies, there is a large number of people who see this area of collecting as an engaging hobby, an interest and an investment for the future. The price escalation in some of these categories, particularly for items of a basically perishable nature, like bears or costumed dolls, almost defies explanation.

What is not in doubt is that the increase in the value of these items, despite their material fragility, has not escaped the notice of the criminal fraternity. Many items are at risk from theft in addition to their vulnerability to damage from smoke, water, accident or inadvertent ill-treatment.

Our research tells us that most people who collect dolls, toys and games make the simple mistake of undervaluing them for insurance purposes. Too many people rely on their existing ‘home and contents’ insurance policy to protect them. Such policies often make exceptions of higher value items or require you to list and value them individually.

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."
