Action figure insurance

    Hi. In the process of moving home so packed up the figure collection but got chatting to a friend that asked whether I had them insured. What is the general feeling about insuring them - do you insure them individually or as a collection? Advice would be greatly appreciated. (for the record I have most of the figures, basic and variants, all still on cards as well as the playsets/megas/exclusives and all 3 master replicas)

    You can't get toys insured. :confused:

    Don't know, but I've heard of people insuring certain expensive items (though most cases I know of occur in movies or television). Somebody I used to work with actually had a Pokemon card insured (it was the Charizard card), and it ended up being stolen. So I guess if you can insure a rare Pokemon card you can insure a toy.

    Well master replica is insurable, maybe playsets.

    Hmm, I guess so. But that's sort of like insuring a cake.
    But toys aren't to valuable in the eyes of business men. Unless you prove it to them.

    Also quite an effective and let's face it hassle free backup plan.

    Could you maybe pack them in a smaller box and take them separately in your own car rather than the moving truck?

    I know that when I can move out, I'm going to have a LOT of little valuables like that, and I'll probably just take the most important stuff with me in a separate car, that way nothing can happen. I'll leave the moving truck for the furniture :p

    Checked with insurer and told that as long as a 'single item' isn't over £1000 then that's fine (collection together is more than that but listing it to an insurance company item by item would take ages). Thought about the moving of them all and I'd probably let the removal firm take the furniture and I'd hire a van for the collections :):)

    Back in the days when I had a subscription to the now defunct ToyFare magazine, I actually do remember there being an ad from time to time about an insurance for collectables, if you can believe that,:crazy:. I wanted to look into but never did, but if you still need it, I'll see if I can dug up those old issues and see if I can find a phone number or website or something.
