  • Where to get photo equipment insurance?

    Hi,

    I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me if there are any companies in Malaysia that can provide insurance cover for my photo equipment?

    I'm not a professional but will be providing (unpaid) photographic support for some research teams in Malaysia. In my past experience I have been involved in some rather temperamental situations which led me to believe that my equipment could be stolen or damaged, thus the reason for the insurance for my peace of mind.

    I'd be grateful of there are any professionals out there that can provide me with an insurance agent/broker who can help.

    Thanks, Z.

                  I have to admit that I was expecting more replies than this (that's not a criticism, just a reflection on the number of replies)...I'm wondering if most photographers (amateur and professional alike) in Malaysia are going about their business without any kind of insurance at all?

                  For me, I can't afford to just buy it all over again so insurance seems to be the way forward (as long as the premium is not to high). I guess I'll have to do the leg work and just call up all the major insurance agents and brokers to see if there are any policies already made up for the Malaysian market...

                  Thanks to everyone for their help. I'll post info up if I find anything...

                      You must know when purchasing a assurance,when you sign the agreement,they will say every thing is cover,when come to claiming is another thing.

                      First you must prove that your equipment is damage due to fire(if covered),by robbery but not you drop it.

                      Second if the glass brake,it is not cover

                      and finally you will not get 100% of what you cover.
