If you have been in an accident

First, make sure that everyone is safe and out of danger - call an ambulance, the police or other emergency services departments if necessary.

What to do at claim time

Make sure your home is safe and secure

If your home has been damaged, make sure everyone involved is safe and, if you need to, call emergency services. For example, if there has been a theft, burglary or vandalism, or an attempt at these, call the police immediately. Once it's safe to do so, you should make sure your home is secure.

Securing and maintaining your contents

You must, at your cost and expense, maintain your contents in good repair, secure your contents, and take all reasonable precautions to prevent loss occurring.

Proof of purchase

If you need to make a claim on your contents, receipts and valuations are a good way to show what you are claiming on. If you don't have a receipt of valuation, you can also use photos, financial statements or records kept by the shop where you purchased the item.

Wear and tear

As our policies are designed to cover sudden and unforeseen damage, we don't cover loss that occurs over time, such as wear and tear.


Customer testimonial

Jacinda's story

We put our customers' needs first and pride ourselves on working with them to help eliminate stress and uncertainty.

Fortunately for Jacinda, she had car and contents insurance with us. So when she had to claim on both her car and her phone on the same day, we kept in touch through the entire process. And we sorted both her phone and her car within a week.
