    BASC Insurance

    Has anyone claimed on the BASC insurance?
    Do you know what you are covered for?

    I must admit personally I don't even know what members are covered for. I went onto their site, first time for years and couldn't find anything about it.

    I am a member but is it worth it?

    Did you not get the policy document bumpf with your information pack? It is very comprehensive
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    We need to have insurance, but insurance cover should not be our be main reason for joining an organisation,whatever organisation you join is up to to you,but choose one that is standing up for your sport, maybe you should ask yourself what you can do for them and your sport rather than what they can do for you.

    As a pro I can't get insurance through being an organisation member, insurance costs me in access of 300 per year which makes insurance through one of the organisations for a recreational stalker look very attractive especially when you consider other benefits being a member can provide.

    the insurance cover in memberships with organisations such as BASC is generally just personal liability insurance i.e. cover you if you are responsible for damage to other peoples property (or other people!). It is not designed to cover damage to rifles or other equipment.

    Many people will already have Personal Liability (and possibly legal costs cover) with their house insurance policies

    One of our members tripped and shot his foot off. BASC insurance paid him out 1,000.

    My household policy certainly covers me for shooting plus covers my guns & rifles away from home, not that individually any of them are worth very much. Anyway, like others I am a member of shooting organisations to lend my support & take advantage of the more specialised insurance. Currently with BASC, GWCT, SGA & BDS. The BDS insurance has an add-on that covers dispatching a deer at an RTA which I have, just in case.

    As I was burgled a couple of months ago I thought it would be a good idea to check my insurance needs.
    My findings are that my shooting, fishing, photographic gear is hardly covered, and my tools are certainly under insured

    I am organising free deer shooting for people on SD and was thinking if the BASC insurance would help if anything went wrong!
    There will be no payment at all so your type of insurance wouldn't be required, I imagine.
    Like most insurances do we know what we are covered for until we try and claim?

    I don't know what you are covered for but 300 for any type of business insurance seems very cheap.

    I wouldnt like to trade a foot for a grand - more like 1000 grand. Still, it might have been a poor foot whatever the owner thought.
