What you should consider with the policy?
You may want to look out for insurance companies that offer a ‘new for old’ policy, which means you will be able to replace most things that are damaged or stolen with an item of equivalent value. If you don’t have this provision then you could find that you’re offered the second hand value of your items instead, which may not cover the cost of new items.
You may also want a policy that gives you some level of cover outside your home. Electrical items like tablet computers and even smartphones are both expensive and attractive to thieves. So you may want to have cover when you’re on the move.
If you own or rent your home, then it makes good sense to cover your possessions with a home contents insurance policy. You need to make sure you have the right policy though, and that you have a level of cover both in and out of your home that suits you and lets you sleep easy at night.
