Prestige Householders Insurance

It is time for a top of the range Prestige Householders Policy?

Are you concerned that your Householders Insurance does not provide enough cover? Are you sick of dealing with Call Centres who offer no personal advice? Are you unsure about the cover you have but do not have the time to look for better? Would you pay a little more for outstanding Insurance Protection? Are you concerned that your current cover is not enough?

Did you read about the lack of full cover by many in the recent floods, cyclones and bushfires? Then having to find extra finance just to rebuild their homes because they were under-insured!

Well I am pleased to advise that there are House and Contents Policies that give you Rolls Royce coverage. Broader protection than standard policies and peace of mind and won’t cost too much.

Minimum Sums Insured are $750,000 Building and $150,000 Contents. Key features include:

  • No Underinsurance: After a covered loss, Insurers will pay to have your home repaired or rebuilt to its original design or style even if the cost exceeds your policy limit. This includes necessary upgrades due to modern building codes.
  • Free  Appraisal Service: Prestige cover Insurers have Appraisers who will visit you to carefully note the home's features, estimate the home's replacement cost and help you determine the amount of coverage you really need. They also assist with security and fire prevention advice.
  • Additional Living Expenses: If your home cannot be lived in due to a covered loss and you need a temporary residence while your house is rebuilt, they help cover the reasonable increase in your normal living expenses. Normal policies limit coverage to a percentage of your home's insured value.
  • Replacement Cost Coverage: In the event that the things inside your home are damaged, they will cover most belongings for the amount it costs to replace them today, without deduction for depreciation, up to the limit you chose on your policy. And some do not require you to replace them. You may choose a cash settlement instead.
  • The Extras: These homeowner’s policies often include extra coverages to help protect you in unexpected situations, ranging from tree removal after a storm, restoration of electronic data destroyed by a computer virus or lock replacement if your keys are lost or stolen. Have a look on the reverse side for further examples of what is available.

You can only get these policies through a qualified Insurance Broker, and that is why should talk to us. For a quote or more information, please call or email us today. Call me on 31231137 or 0439530910 or email enquiries@cprinsurance.com.au and we can assist you further.

Above-average cyclone season looms

As reported by insurancenews.com.au

Insurers should brace for an above-average cyclone season due to weakening La Nina conditions in the Pacific Ocean and warmer than average sea temperatures to the north and east, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

The cyclone season begins next month and ends in April.

The bureau says Australia has a 67% chance of an above-average season, while the west has a 59% chance, the northwest 63%, the north 56% and the east 58%.

In neutral years the first tropical cyclone to make landfall typically occurs in late December, while in La Nina years it usually hits in the first week of December, the bureau says.

Insurance Council of Australia spokesman Campbell Fuller says even an average cyclone season – consisting of 11 events, four of which make landfall – can be devastating.

“An above-average year could bring many more than that, and each one has the potential to cause catastrophic damage if it crosses the coast in a heavily populated area,” he said.

“Only one cyclone made landfall last season, and that was in a sparsely populated part of WA’s Pilbara. There’s no guarantee Australia will be so fortunate this summer.”

Tropical Cyclone Marcia cost insurers $544 million from more than 37,000 claims when it struck Rockhampton in February last year. In 2011 Cyclone Yasi cost insurers $1.4 billion.

Beware the escape clause in Motor policies

Cheap motor insurance can have some tough exclusions The Policy Comparison team at LMI have highlighted some new exclusions have been introduced by some of the “Cheapy” direct insurers. Previously Motor Insurance wordings did not have an exclusion for “reckless acts” but this has now changed.  Reckless driving is often defined as a mental state in which the driver displays a wanton disregard for the rules of the road; the driver misjudges common driving procedures, often causing accidents and other damages. The legal dictionary defines reckless driving as operation of an automobile in a dangerous manner under the circumstances, including speeding (or going too fast forthe conditions, even though within the posted speed limit), driving after drinking (but not drunk), having too many passengers inthe car, cutting in and out of traffic, failing to yield to other vehicles, and other negligent acts.
