Assetsure finds people paying for free insurance information

Assetsure finds people paying for free information – Assetsure recently found a web site that was offering to sell for quite a few pounds The insider guide to obtaining cheap home insurance. Well let us save you the,money if you have seen this ebook for sale, we can share the benefit of our knowledge with you for free. Like most other types of policy, there is no such thing as cheap home insurance, everyone offers to save you money but they can’t all offer the cheapest quote. There are a number of things you can do though to make sure you do not overpay and a number of discounts that may be available to you.

  • Always shop around, only by comparing as many products as possible can you possibly know that you have got the best deal.
  • Insurance companies often give discounts from their home policies for improved security, you could consider adding better locks to your doors or windows or you could install a burglar alarm.
  • Having security lighting or window shutters may entitle you to a discount.
  • Join a neighbourhood watch scheme.
  • Fitting smoke alarms to you property in some cases will provide you with a discount.
  • If you are over a certain age or retired you may get a discount.
  • Having double glazing.

One of the largest discounts you can obtain, relates to taking an excess under the policy. The term excess relates to the first portion of the loss you are responsible to pay. Usually, you will have to pay the first £50.00 of any claim, rising to a £1000 for subsidence claims. You can take a voluntary excess on top of this and insurers will usually consider amounts up to £500.00. Apart from the above suggestions any other bright ideas from companies to reduce you home insurance premium should best be ignored. One of the most ill conceived ideas is not to declare the full value of your Contents or Building (Under Insure). If you under insure and you have a claim, even if it is not for a total loss, the insurers will probably apply an average clause to your claim which will have the effect of reducing your settlement in direct proportion to the amount of under insurance.

Working from Home – With more and more of our daily routine being controlled by computers, insurers are finding that many customers are ditching the office and working at home. Many companies have set up networks so as employees no longer have to commute in to work. If you work from home, remember to tell your insurance company as most home insurance polices do not cover any form of business use. Generally speaking if your work is clerical only then your insurance company should be reasonably happy although they may want you to provide a sum insured for business equipment. If you run any other type of business from home, especially one where members of the public come on to the premises, then you will need additional public liability insurance and you may have to take out a separate policy.
