The Advantages of Home and Contents Insurance

When it comes to uncertainty, the best we can all do is be as prepared as possible. In terms of our houses and homes, choosing home and contents insurance is the most effective way in which we can be prepared for the unthinkable. Here are some of the advantages to taking out such a policy.

Protection from the Elements

Whilst technology has greatly improved to be able to predict stormy weather and natural disasters, humankind is still incredibly susceptible to nature’s whims. Recent earthquakes in New Zealand and the tsunami in Japan and Indonesia provide all the evidence we need. Homeowners insurance, or hazard insurance as it is also known, means that if we are unfortunate enough to suffer such consequences, financially at least, we are secured.

Protection from Crime

If you were to find yourself in the unfortunate predicament of being victims of burglary or theft, a good home and contents insurance policy will see that stolen items are replaced with minimal inconvenience. Whilst it may be heart-breaking to think of losing our possessions, knowing that there will not be a hefty bill waiting for us when we replace them is why many New Zealanders choose to buy home and contents insurance.

New for Old

The ‘new for old’ policy operated by most insurance vendors means that were we to replace lost or damaged items, we can enjoy the newest items worth a similar amount to what was originally paid out.

Peace of Mind

Ultimately, contents and homeowners insurance allows us to enjoy a certain peace of mind. Whilst we often cannot help the circumstances we find ourselves in, knowing that we’re covered for almost any situation means that we can worry about other important things, like our families and loved ones.
