Pairs and Sets cover – what does this mean? 

If any item which has an increased value because it forms part of a pair or set is lost or damaged, any payment an insurance company make will take account of the increased value. You may decide if your insurers pay the value of the entire pair or set. The most insurers will pay is the value of that pair or set.

Recovery of Artworks

If your insurance company recover any of your property after a loss, you can buy it back from them within 60 days. Insurers will charge:

1. The amount they paid for your claim plus interest; or
2. The fair market value of the item at the time underwriters recover it; whichever is less.

What clients say about

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brownhill to anyone. They’ve helped me insure my Art business for the past eight years through changes of studio and individual exhibitions. My advisor Steve has taken the time to get to know me personally and I trust that he knows what is best for my business. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else and highly recommend them.

Business Client

We wanted to write in and let you know what a stellar agent Stephen Canning is. He has always been quick so quick & responsive to our needs, plus offering trustworthy advice. Recently he handled a claim for us, we felt he acted in an efficient and professional manner every step of the way. His in depth knowledge of the industry and ability to guide his clients is outstanding. We are happy to recommend Stephen to any of our colleagues.’

Gallery Client

I’ve used Brownhills to cover my Art Gallery business since I started trading some 15 years ago – and I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.  I’m fully confident that being experts in their field they offer appropriate cover, and at a good cost.  I really value the personal service from Steve Canning and the relationship we’ve built up over the years.  It is also great that I can recommend the company to my clients for their personal art collection insurance, safe in the knowledge they will also receive the same level of service.  Thank you Brownhill Insurance Group from Liberty Gallery.
