Contents Insurance covers your belongings if they are stolen, lost or damaged due to a variety of factors such as flood, fire or a break-in. We don't assume to know exactly what you own so have designed a range of flexible options to give you control.
You can add on a number of optional extras such as Bicycle Cover, Away from Home Cover and Legal Expenses. We will tailor your policy to give you peace of mind that your valuable items are protected.

Contents Insurance – Standard cover in our policies:

  • Cover for typical household contents you keep in your home – choose your amount up to £100,000.
  • Alternative Accommodation if your home becomes uninhabitable (even if you don’t have Buildings Cover with us).
  • Accidental Damage Cover to protect from mishaps to mirrors, ceramic hobs and glass (such as oven doors and glass-topped tables). Some policies will cover damage to TVs, desktop PCs and games consoles as standard too.
  • Valuables and high-risk items cover provided as standard (total limits apply, ranging from £10,000 to £30,000 depending on insurer). No need to specify items worth less than £2,000 and you can cover individual items worth up to £15,000.

Here are a few commonly asked questions about Contents Insurance:

How much contents cover do I need?

You should ensure you have enough cover for all items kept in your home. We suggest you make a list of all the most expensive things you own and then add on an amount to cover smaller items such as furniture, kitchen contents, frozen food, linens, clothes, toys, & DVDs etc. Or you can take a room at a time and tot up everything in it.

Benefits of Contents Insurance

Contents Insurance is there to protect your belongings and valuables if the worst should happen. Although there are some items that just cannot be replaced, having contents insurance covers the financial burden of life's unexpected events like a burglary or a fire. Unlike buildings insurance, your mortgage provider will not require you to take out contents insurance but it's a good precaution to avoid having to pay out for everything in your home.

What you'll need to run a quote

  • Your address (type of property, roughly when it was built, number of rooms)
  • General information about your property such as the types of locks used
  • Who lives there, and when are people typically at home
  • How much would it cost to rebuild (we’ll suggest a figure based on your postcode)

4 4/5 Building and content insurance
The price was excellent and the standard of cover was good. Documents were sent very promptly. The only reason I don't give five stars is that I have no experience of dealing with the company when there is a problem.

a great product at a great price and a person with knowledge able to answer my questions

4 4/5 Great on cost and ease of buying, Not experience the claims side and hope that I never need to.
Renewing my policy with Policy Expert was easy and smooth and quick.. The customer service was excellent with everything fully explained without it sounding as if was coming from a script. Really appreciate the personal touch. Getting the money in is one thing but are they as good at paying it out? If they are then it would be 5 stars without any hesitation.
