Reuniting musicians with their lost instruments across the UK

Published 16th November 2022

We understand that theft or loss of an instrument is a musician’s worst nightmare. We’re proud to continue our commitment to supporting the musician’s community with Missing Instruments Finder, helping musicians to reunite with their treasured lost or stolen instruments across the UK. 

We know that when the worst happens, getting the word out there as soon as possible is key. Musicians can create an account on Missing Instruments Finder for free, upload a missing or found instrument listing in minutes, and search through the list of found instruments for a match. 
The site was launched on 27th October 2022 and can now be used by all musicians looking to start the search for their lost or stolen instrument. You don't have to be a customer of Allianz Musical Insurance in order to list a missing musical instrument, or report one as found.

Create a missing instrument listing

Lost and found instrument listings include details on material, colour, unique markings, serial number, and a description on how the instrument was lost or stolen - providing the musicians community with as much information as possible to help with recovery.

Missing Instruments Finder encourages users of the site to help out fellow musicians by providing any information they may have on a missing instrument listing. Musicians will be notified if their instrument is found, or if any information has been provided by another user - helping musicians to locate their instrument and get back to playing as soon as possible.

Search the database

The online platform can also give peace of mind to musicians looking to invest in a second-hand instrument - allowing them to search the database to check that the instrument they are looking to purchase has not been stolen.
We’ve been working with musicians since 1960, and It is important to all of us at Allianz Musical Insurance to do what we can do support musicians through challenging times. We’re pleased to be supporting the industry with this free online tool that is active in reuniting missing instruments with their owners, and getting musicians back to doing what they love. 

Sandeep Jassi, Claims Team Leader at Allianz Musical Insurance said “I’m really looking forward to seeing how many musicians we can reunite with their instruments using this website. In addition to instruments being a valuable tool of the trade for a professional musician, they hold personal and sentimental value which sometimes money can’t buy and only finding the original will do. As the UK’s leading Musical insurer, we have launched the site purely based on feedback from customers who told us there was a need for this kind of platform and we designed it to support the musician community to help each other.”
