Shotgun and Rifle Insurance

With the average cost of a rifle or shotgun now at £5000, having insurance for when an unexpected event occurs is well worth considering. More often than not guns are well looked after; however, accidents can happen. With stock breakage or damage to the barrel a common cause of detriment, repair work, if at all possible, can often be costly.

We provide cover on an all-risks basis for specified shooting and sporting equipment. Newmoon not only provides shotgun and rifle insurance but policies can also be extended to cover: sights, binoculars, night vision and many other accessories.

Our policy includes special rates and extensions for BASC members. It also allows you to select on a gun-by-gun basis the level of cover you require, including: New-for-old, Indemnity, Agreed Value, and Premises-only cover.

Some of the benefits of our policy include:

  • Cover at home, gun club, at a shoot, transit to and from a shoot
  • Repair or replacement
  • Accidental damage includes barrel blow-out (many home insurance policies exclude this cover)
  • Alternative hire cost up £250 per year
  • Dedicated pairs and sets clauses
  • Cover against damage caused to a gun while being loaded by another person on a shoot with you
  • Cover for loaning your gun to another member of your Association (conditions apply)
  • Option for professional and commercial use
  • Standard gun cover includes accessories up to the value of £750
  • £0 excess on your insured guns (except Indemnity basis where an excess applies from 10% – 30% depending on age of gun)
  • Cover anywhere in the UK with optional 21 days worldwide extension for an additional premium
  • Sums insured up to £100,000.
