Your pawn shop insurance needs to include liability for items leased, owned and pledged, or held on consignment; out-of-safe items; and glass. It should also cover Stock to include guns and jewelry. It would not make good business sense to decrease your coverage options, simply to lower the price of your insurance.
Pawn shops are unique from retail stores in that they often carry high-value items such as guns and jewelry, which are frequently targeted by thieves. Pawnbroker insurance is customized to cover these unique risks. A Pawnbrokers Package Policy will take your business model into consideration in order to write the coverage parts that you need. An experienced broker at First Class Insurance will help to ensure that you do not over-pay for these.
Having a robust security system in place is one of the best ways to not only prevent a loss but also to lower the cost of your pawn insurance. A central alarm system is a must have, and should include hold-up buttons as well as door contacts on your safe. Long guns can be stored in a gun safe, but if let out on racks while closed for businesses, you will want to have a cable lock running through all trigger mechanisms.
CCTV surveillance monitoring with recorders are highly recommended, and additional security features to consider can include bars on windows and heavy door lock bolts. If you are taking auto on pawn, make sure that you have a secured, locked enclosure for storing vehicles and consider razor wire along fencing.
