I think mine is in the $14/1k gear range, in the Northern Virginia area just outside the beltway. If you were in a higher crime city, I'd suspect that what you were quoted ($18/1k) is probably accurate.

I'm near Boston, and my rates are comparatively low.  But there are other factors...for example, we get a nice discount on our home insurance, and therefore probably on my gear coverage, because my wife stays home with our kids (she chose to give up her academic faculty position to do so).

So your wife is smart TOO?!  8)

Question for the OP

Was this quoted as a rider to your home owners / renter policy or as a stand alone policy?  Not sure how much but that will have a pretty good impact on rates

The quote I received was from another insurance company and not my home insurance carrier.  I didn't want to tie these two together as Neuro had mentioned.
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.
