A closer look at home contents insurance… Are you at risk

Whether we acknowledge it or not, home contents insurance is more crucial than that second cup of morning coffee. Navigating the loss or damage of our prized treasures is rough enough. Add in the financial headache of replacing them? Now that’s a real horror story.

Balancing act: The interplay between cost and protection

For many of us South Africans, the idea of adding a home contents insurance premium to our already teetering cost of living sounds about as appealing as a cold shower in winter. But it’s a bit like your grandmother’s flu remedy… You don’t know its magic until you’re sniffling and sneezing. Weighing up the cost of monthly premiums against the eye-watering price tag of replacing stolen goods, it’s a no-brainer: Insurance for the win!

World view: Taking cues from the UK

An Insurance Times article revealed that 40% of UK homeowners don’t have home contents insurance. The Telegraph noted that a quarter of British households underestimate their assets’ worth. Astonishingly, 1 in 5 had no home content insurance at all. This statistic translates to about 6.8 million households being under-insured, placing approximately £200 billion of home contents in jeopardy.

While South Africa may be lacking a similar reality check, we could easily be sitting in the same boat, or perhaps an even leakier 1. So, why not step up and ensure your treasures are snug and secure?

The power of comparison

Start by doing some homework and comparing a few insurance quotes. It’s a small step, but 1 that can save your treasures from going walkabout.
