• Why is it essential that Customers purchase the correct amount of insurance cover and are not underinsured?

    It is essential to ensure that your Customers’ goods are not underinsured as in the event of a partial loss where the Customer has undervalued their goods they will only receive a percentage of the value of their goods. This is because of the application of average.

    For Example: If a Customer declares their goods at £10,000 and it is found that their goods are worth £20,000 in the event of a claim they will receive 50% of any settlement. For example, if a claim is made for £1,000 they will only receive £500.
