I just got my insurance from State Farm last week. It's called the "Personal Article" insurance. It was relatively inexpensive. I paid about $140 a year for close to $10,000 worth of gears. It covers theft, lost, and damage anywhere in the world.

If you have receipts, be sure to keep them and send it to your agent. If you don't, get a screenshot of the current price of your gear from B&H, Adorama, etc. I took it one step further by creating a spreadsheet with all my gears, along with the serial number (if applicable), purchase price, and replacement cost.

A word of caution: If you make any money with your camera equipment, you may want to consider a professional inland marine policy. It costs about 3x as much ($30/$1000) as a non-pro, but I was warned early on that if i insured as a non-pro a loss might not be covered if I show income with my gear or if the loss happens on a job.

Something to think about...

I have a stand alone policy for my gear. Does not make sense to me to risk my household insurance going up if something happens to my gear.

Who'd you get you stand alone policy from. This is what I'd like as well.

Good suggestion

is a stand alone policy, "personal article" insurance available in Canada, specifically Ontario. If so, can anyone make recommendations.
