The most common things we think of when it comes to insuring something are our health and our automobiles.
You know how insurance works; you pay a monthly fee and have a specific financial "covering" for any damage done to what's insured - say your car. It's great to have even if it is annoying to have to pay for, and anyone who's ever needed it has felt this way.
But...we don't always think about insuring our pianos and instruments! I think that it's because we feel our instruments are protected in our homes and won't be in harm's way. Maybe we're renting and feel like we can't afford renter's insurance. It's just not something that comes up in "non-musician" types of conversations.
Let's rethink that a bit though. There are actually many things that can happen to your instrument even if it stays in your personal residence only. For example:
Whether you rent or own, take your instrument with you or leave it at home, live in a house or an apartment, you need to look at protecting your instrument from theft, damage from weather events, damage from others, and any other thing that can cause damage to your keyboard.
In the next blog post we're going to look at different options for insuring your instrument and which type might fit best for your personal situation. You may already have insurance through your renters or home owner's policy and may just need to tweak that a bit with your agent.
