How can I prepare for a claim?
If you decide to go ahead, claiming on your home insurance should be a pretty straightforward process. But there are a few things you can do to help matters along.
- Keep your policy documents in a safe place so you know where they are if you need to make a claim.
- If you’re claiming for something that’s been stolen or vandalised, report it to the police and get a crime reference number straight away.
- Keep a record of all the items you’ve insured and their receipts.
- Call your insurance company as soon as possible to start your claim.
