Qwake - An Insurance Wake Up Call?

1. Home Contents Valuation

Insurance wake up call

We have heard the horror stories of families in the Canterbury quake and sympathise with those who were under-insured.

It is a timely reminder that we should review our cover: for business and homes; for contents, building and life.

We have had a useful home contents valuation tool sent to us, and being proactive think it important to share with you.

Instructions for use:


1. Click on the following website link: Home Contents Insurance Valuation Calculator

Note: The form opens in Adobe Acrobat (if needed, the latest version is free and downloadable from their website).

2. Zoom in.

3. Click in the any of the blank 'your value' column boxes to enter your figure.

4. The form will automatically sum the totals for you.

5. Print a final copy printed for your records and any discussions with your insurance company.


Note: If you do choose to increase your insurance cover please retain the details for use when we prepare your annual accounts.
