Three mistakes people make about contents insurance


Using market value rather than new-for-old

If you spill coffee on your computer, how will you replace it? Make sure your insurance offers new-for-old replacement. That covers the full cost of a new model. Otherwise, you’ll only get paid your laptop’s current market cost (probably not a lot). That leaves you to pay the difference on a new laptop.


Forgetting to increase your cover

Upgraded your fridge or treated yourself to a new guitar lately? When did you last update your contents insurance? Many of us set and forget our contents insurance. When you buy more stuff, you need enough insurance to replace everything if the worst happened.


Not specifying really expensive items

Your engagement ring or feature-loaded mountain bike would cost a lot to replace. High-value items need to be itemised on your contents insurance. That includes things like sports equipment and bicycles, art, jewellery and valuable collections.

Replacement Value     

Feel at ease with our new-for-old cover. We’ll cover the cost associated with the repair or replacement of your things if they’re damaged, lost or stolen. We’ll replace these with the nearest equivalent, in the same condition of the items when they were new.
