Of course, freelance insurance is our forte and your camera comes under this. In fact, you can insure your camera kit, lenses, tripod and any other technical and portable equipment you need to do your job. You can insure your photography kit online for up to £50k, but if you have more expensive equipment, just give us a call on 0330 013 0036 and we may be able to help.
You might have hundreds of brushes, palettes and tones of foundation that make up your kit. Individually, they might be worth up to £50 each, but have you ever thought about the implications of your kit being stolen? As long as you have proof of purchase, Create can cover up to £50k worth of cosmetics.
Whether you’re sewing expensive period costumes or have lots of electronic accessories, Create is here to cover freelancers. So whatever your creative expertise, you can insure technical and portable equipment up to £50k. You don’t have to list the individual items one by one, as long as you have proof of purchase. For office based non-portable equipment, you could look into property and contents insurance.
Yes, whilst under your responsibility, the hired kit is insured as if it’s your own equipment. You will just need to ensure that the total value of owned and hired equipment doesn’t exceed your cover limit, for example £30k of your own equipment and £5k hired, on a £35k cover limit. If you need to increase your agreed limit, you will need to let us know.
You can get a basic £5k annual equipment insurance policy from Create for £56*, which would insure you in the UK and EU. However, it really depends on your value of equipment, length of policy and if you want it to cover the UK and EU or worldwide. You can choose to insure up to £50k of equipment and to only cover just a few days, weeks or months.
If you choose to get a quote online, you’ll only be able to choose up to £50k cover. However, we deal with lots of large media and entertainment clients that insure over £50k of equipment with us. If you get in touch directly with our team via 0330 013 0036 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, they would be happy to help.
Your equipment is covered for UK and EU travel as standard. However, if you frequently travel further afield for work, it would be a good idea to insure your equipment for worldwide trips. To give you an idea, insuring £5k of equipment worldwide would cost £84* for the year, and £10k of equipment would cost £168* for the year.
