Why would I use an insurance broker?

You use an accountant to give you tax advice. You use a solicitor to give you legal advice. In the same way, it makes sense to use an insurance broker to give you insurance advice.

An insurance broker is skilled in knowing the right questions to ask to find out the risks you have, and then ‘broking the insurance market’ to negotiate with insurers on your behalf to find the best deal for you that gives you exactly the right cover you need at the best price.

A solid insurance program gives you peace of mind when the unexpected happens at claims time by making sure that you’re:

  • not paying for anything you don’t need,
  • not paying for expensive overlaps across policies, and
  • covered for everything you do need.

Am I covered for valuations?

When carrying out valuations there could be a risk that your customer suffers a loss and feels the item was undervalued. Professional Indemnity protects against your legal liability from alleged wrongful advice. Even if you think you are innocent, the defence costs involved can be enormous. We can provide you with an option to include professional indemnity insurance within our jewellery block policy.

Am I covered for seasonal increase?

We can provide you with options allowing an automatic increase in stock for your busy periods, such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, at a low additional cost. This gives you peace of mind throughout the year and removes the need for you to notify your insurer or broker of any increases in stock.

Am I covered for stock whilst it is being worked on?

Are you repairing or cleaning jewellery? The AJG wording can extend to cover property whilst you are actually working on it for any damage that results directly from your work.

Am I covered for theft of stock from vehicles?

It is normal in your business for stock to be carried not only by you, but also by your representatives, agents, messengers and/or delivery hands. Our policy can cover you whilst it is outside your premises including whilst in an unattended vehicle, as long as it is hidden from view and the vehicle is locked.

Am I covered for stock at exhibitions?

Do you ever bring stock to exhibitions or trade fairs? Our policy offers you $10,000 of cover automatically for property whilst at an exhibition, or whilst travelling to and from an exhibition.

This can be increased according to your needs.

 

Am I enjoying low excesses?

The AJG policy is flexible and can be tailored to your needs. We can provide you with the excess level suitable for your risk appetite.

Is my basis of settlement appropriate for my business?

If valuable stock is damaged or stolen, replacement cost may not be an appropriate form of compensation for you. The AJG solution allows tailored settlement options created specifically for your specialist exposures, e.g. historical cost price plus 10% (or higher if needed).

Are you a Pearler?

Given the unique risk considerations of pearls, we have specialised insurance solutions for those jewellers who have a weighting towards pearl sales/distribution/jewellery manufacture. Our bespoke policy is competitively priced and offers appreciably higher limits and discretionary covers than are otherwise unavailable under a standard jewellers policy. For more information on this product visit the specialites area on our main Jewellers page or contact our marine practice on 08 6250 8414.

Please note JAA member discounts are not applicable to this policy.
