Thanks for this information.
What kind of documentation did you have to provide for the scopes valued at over $2000? Dated receipts? Cancelled checks? Something else?
Have you had any experience with loss and if so, how well did American Collectors Insurance respond?
We have been with American Collectors Insurance for several years and have only had to furnish documentation on items valued at more than $2,000. That is but a few of our 100+ scopes.
