Adequate insurance coverage is a critical to the safekeeping of your valuables.
Many people believe they have coverage through their Homeowner's Policy. What most people don't know until they actually file an insurance claim: many property and casualty policies will not pay out the full replacement value if valuables are not itemized on a schedule.
Work with us to insure your collection
We prepare your itemized insurance schedule for you, your agent, and your underwriter to use so you can insure valuable property for an adequate replacement value. We identify your valuable objects using industry-standard Object ID methodology, carefully document and photograph your objects, and conduct market research to support an accurate retail replacement value. We organize all of your information in an appraisal report: a legal document you can submit to your insurer with the confidence that you have adequate AND specific coverage to protect your favorite paintings, wine collection, or the antique furniture you inherited from your parents.
Whatever the object, it can be included our insurance appraisal service so you can avoid startling financial losses in the event of a loss.
Your insurance inventory can stay current with our accessible online portals for public and private collection management.

The portal will intuitively adapt to the format and style of your website so the information appears as a natural fit to your user - enhancing your brand with a professional look, tone and feel.
Customized information structure empowers your metadata
We are real, live human beings who work directly with you to create a system specific to the cultural objects in your collections.
Share selectively - you’re in control!
You have the power to assign access privileges to different types of user accounts. For example: fiduciaries see information concerning insurance values, while staff can edit object data. Meanwhile, the public can search and sort through data you choose to make accessible.
You focus on what you do best - let us handle the rest
Relax and know that we can facilitate the cataloguing and digitization of your cultural objects. No temporary staff hires, no distracting, never-ending “special projects,” so you can stay on track with your other duties.
We can organize and appraise in weeks or months what we’ve seen museums and libraries take years to complete. We are experienced specialists dedicated to this process, so we know how to work efficiently.
