Specialist Insurance for Auctions
When running an auction, it is likely that you are going to be in possession of a number of high-value items that belong to third-parties, so having cover for any accidental damage that is caused is important.
Our Auction Insurance policy can provide Public Liability protection that ensures that if you are sued for damage that is caused to a third-parties property, the legal costs and settlement are handled by us.
As well as liability cover, we can include a number of other benefits on your policy including Equipment Cover for the items you own and Employers’ Liability which protects the event if a staff member is injured.
Policies start from as little as £40 and we aim to have even the most complex of proposal quoted for your bespoke insurance policy within two working hours of your submission.

What Insurance Do Auctions Need?
The main protection anyone running an auction needs is Public Liability, but there a number of possible benefits to consider.
If an auction organiser or a member of staff were to damage the property owned by a third-party they could be pursued for damages. Having Public Liability in place means that if that was the case, the costs associated with defending the auction and any subsequent settlement is handled by your insurance policy.
We can add cover to any Auction Insurance policy to protect the equipment owned by the organisers against loss, damage and theft. We can provide up to £50,000 worth of cover on every policy, with a limit of £5,000 on each individual item. Protection is also available for equipment left overnight at the event.
