What does our contents insurance cover?
The contents you can insure are often described as the items that you’d take with you if you were moving house. This includes furniture, electrical appliances, smaller possessions, and fixtures like curtains and carpets.
We’ll cover your expenses to replace stolen items or damaged items in your home. We’ll also cover loss of essential items like laptops and desktop computers.
The types of items that are protected by our contents insurance include:
- home furniture
- electronic goods (computers, tablets, mobile phones etc.)
- clothes, shoes and accessories
- paintings, pictures and sculptures
- carpets and curtains
If you’re renting a property, it’s likely that you’ll want to protect the items listed while someone else insures the building you live in. We can provide insurance for your belongings if you’re renting a property (sometimes known as tenants’ contents insurance). Simply select a contents-only quote when you’re choosing the type of cover.
