Home Insurance Cover – back to basics with quality…

The Covid-19 crisis has had a dreadful impact on the nation and the people of the world, producing an unnerving time for all.  We very much hope that we are collectively moving past the worst of the crisis.

If there has been a benefit to Lockdown, it’s that we have had more time at home with our families.  Most of us are beginning to find that we have more time on our hands than we are used to and are using this time to finally get round to the things we have been wanting to do, but often put off.

A quick question for you.  “How important is the family home?

Now more than ever we know the family home is very important to us and is central to our whole lives. With this in mind, when was the last time that you checked you had the right home insurance policy?

If only it was that easy. We are constantly bombarded with advertising encouraging us to go on to comparison websites. The issue is that comparison websites do not give advice. Their only job is to return the cheapest quote. Where in life is cheapest the best? The cheapest quote usually means you are getting a basic policy that has a huge amount of small print designed not to pay out on the areas they know you are most likely to claim.

Most people who buy from comparison sites have no idea what they are covered for. It’s the old line, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. The reality is that you really do not want to gamble when it comes to insuring your home which for most people is their biggest asset.
