General tips to help you with stolen instruments

Immediately inform the police - Let the police know as soon as possible so they can help you and give you a crime reference number - you may need this to make a claim on your insurance policy.

Be proactive – Create an info sheet with pictures, instrument details, contact details and the crime reference number. Hand it out to local music and pawn shops (in case someone tries to sell it on) and even attach it to posts at the local train station and bus stops.

Use the power of the web – put a post up across all your social networks to get the widest coverage possible. Also keep an eye on websites where your instrument might be put up to be resold (e.g. eBay and Gumtree are a good start).

Terms and conditions apply. * 2 months free only applicable when you buy a policy online. For the first year you will only make 10 payments. Subject to our minimum premium and not valid in conjunction with other offers.
