Based in Crowborough East Sussex, with an experienced team who understand musicians needs

Newmoon was founded in June 2008 by an ex Allianz Director. A team from British Reserve/Allianz joined Newmoon in 2009. Since 2010 it has been a privately owned business.


Our aim is to provide you with a personal service which combines both a competitive premium and cover. Whilst some competitors compete for your business on price, often with a low introduction offer, we believe that cover is as important and must reflect your special interest and needs e.g. of a musician. Whether you select Newmoon or not, we strongly recommend you look into the policy details as not all "specialist" music instrument cover is the same.

Unlike many of our competitors, who have staff switching from an extensive product range, our approach is to provide you with a dedicated team at Crowborough with direct dial access (01892 280323) to a person, during office hours (09:00 – 17:30 Monday – Friday), who will have an understanding and knowledge of your passion.


Many of our customers deal with the same person year on year and we are often on first name terms with customers, offering friendly advice and service.


All our quotes include IPT and any fees. If you make a change midterm you only pay for any additional risk premium – unlike many of our competitors we do not apply any administration charge to these midterm adjustments.

Gun Insurance

We work with both the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) and Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (CPSA) to provide physical gun insurance for its members.


We have built a unique product which offers members the opportunity to select new for old, second hand value or agreed value basis of cover.

We work with these organisations at trade fairs and at local levels with instructors. If you are seeking liability insurance please note we do not provide this cover and would recommend that you join either BASC or CPSA.
