Professional Property Cover

Standard Equity members* - Cover from £56 a year

Equity members rely upon a wide range of costumes, props instruments and equipment and would experience difficulty should they be lost, damaged, stolen or destroyed.

Home insurance usually excludes professional/trade belongings so having a policy providing cover for items used in connection with your occupation is essential to ensure that you are able to maintain your employment obligations and income.

For your protection, Equity has arranged via First Act Insurance and insurers Hiscox, cover that provides the replacement of insured items at competitive and affordable rates.

Note: The Equity Professional Property Cover is an optional extension to the Equity backstage cover
