About Us  
 

We have been arranging insurance for philatelic (stamp) collectors since the 1920’s and are proud that quite a number of our clients have been with us for over 40 years. In those early days the company was a department of a major London auction house. A separate company was formed 25 years ago and we changed the name to Wardrop & Company in 1993; some years after it had become owned by John Wardrop and his family.

It is our simple ambition to provide a prompt, professional and, above all, personal insurance service. No call centre, no automated telephone switchboard to be negotiated like a numerical maze, just real people to provide real answers to real questions. We firmly believe that insurance should hold no surprises and take time and trouble to explain what is covered and what is not.

The company is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our Registration number is 304502 and you can check this by visiting the FCA website or telephoning by them on 0800 111 6768


Insurance Services   
    

Wardrop and company are insurance intermediaries specialising in cover for Stamp Collectors, Philatelic Societies and Study Circles and Dealers of stamps and other philatelic material. We also offer cover for other types of collections for example Coins, Medals, Maps, Books, almost anything of a collectable nature. We also have excellent facilities for household buildings and contents insurance and travel insurance.

The stamp collectors’ policy was designed with the collector in mind. The scope of cover is extremely wide and covers philatelic material anywhere within the UK and can easily be extended for foreign exhibitions if required. You will find the full certificate wording in the insurance section by following this link. You can also see our terms of business/key facts.

Visit the home insurance and travel insurance sections to find out more about these products and obtain premium quotations. The home quotation form has been designed to gather the minimum amount of information to enable us to give some first indications of premiums.

We hope that the website will also be a place of interest to collectors and dealers alike. There are many links to other sites and we are particularly keen to promote the websites of individual collectors who may remain undiscovered by using the more general search engines, similarly Clubs and Societies who may otherwise find themselves too far down the listings.

Tell us about a site you found of interest and we will add a link.
