Insurance Claims

An important note on insurance claims for Persian rugs:

Most insurance companies want you to declare the value at the time the insurance policy is signed. To assist with this, we can assess the value of your rugs by viewing photographs of them. We will need a number of photos of the front, and a close up of the back of the carpet as well as any fringing. We can provide you with a replacement valuation as well as a certificate of origin. You should update the valuations every 5- 10 years, depending on your insurance company’s requirements.

We advise that it is best to keep a few photographs of your Persian carpet in the case that it is stolen or damaged.

It is also recommended to have an insurance policy in which you can insure your rugs against accidental damage as well as fire, flood and theft.
