Do I need home & contents insurance?

If you’re a homeowner, home & contents insurance is one of the most important types of cover you can buy. Without it, you may be left to foot the bill for expensive but necessary repairs to your building, or have to pay thousands of dollars to replace your stolen or damaged valuables.

What is contents insurance?

Contents Insurance can help the customer have peace of mind knowing that we cover new for old replacement for their contents when they make a claim.

Are there different types of contents insurance?

While all contents insurance policies are designed to do one thing – protect the contents in your home – there is no one-size-fits all approach to your cover. You can tailor your contents policy to meet your needs by adding optional extras for a higher premium.

Do I need contents insurance while renting?

Some renters may mistakenly believe their valuables are covered under their landlord’s insurance policy. Or perhaps some simply think, “It won’t happen to me.” Yet one in 15 Australians will file a claim on their Home and Contents insurance each year – that’s nearly 720,000 claims.
