Home Insurance Deals – How do I get a cheap one?

home insuranceHomeowners should know that you can get a cheap home insurance deal if you are prepared to incorporate a few of these money saving tips before you go out getting a household insurance quote.

It’s a well know fact that many property owners when receiving their annual home insurance renewal premium, don’t bother trying to get another quote from another supplier they just, let their policy renew automatically. It’s a pity because these property owners are throwing away hundreds of pounds every year because of there laziness. I mean some of these individuals might think that they have a cheap deal and are happy with there quote, but if they took the time to obtain a quotation from another provider they might think differently. Home insurers are very competitive today and there are always better deals coming out all the time. Some offering free contents when you buy their buildings cover and online discount of up to 25%. Some companies are offering free emergency cover and legal expenses too. The best advice I can give is to go and get as many quotes as you can at first from as many insurers and brokers as you can. You’ll be surprised at how much money you could potentially save off you’re premiums.

In some cases you can get additional discount if you help to make your property more equipped to handle a disaster. Think about adding storm shutters to your windows and doors, purchasing sand bags in case of floods or how about making your garden and outbuildings more resistant to storms and wind. You can also reduce the risk of damage to your home by updating the electrics and plumbing.

Depending on the insurer you can also get discount if you have an approved burglar alarm fitted in your home. Also, securely lock all doors and windows too with dead locks, so you’re not giving thieves easy access in your home. The less of a risk your home is to being burgled and you making a claim the bigger the discount you could receive from the insurer.
