HOME INSURANCE


secure your lifestyle with home insurance

Our home is easily our most valuable possession. It keeps our families safe and sheltered. It contains so many memories and for some, owning a home is the end result of a lifetime of hard work and saving. Your home and your lifestyle deserves protection. That's why we have home insurance, specially tailored to meet your individual needs. With home insurance, your house will be covered up to and including the total specified amount that you choose. It can also be packaged together with a contents insurance policy to secure not just the building itself, but the valuable possessions it contains inside.

There are two main options for home insurance that will insure the value of your house against unfortunate events such as flooding, fires, intentional damage or arson. It can also protect you from the incidence of natural disasters. As New Zealanders, we have been witness to the tragedy of the Christchurch Earthquakes, we know that these things can happen to us. With our help, you won't have to take the chance of losing it all. Home insurance can also include a number of optional benefits, a selection of which are outlined below.

Comprehensive home insurance

A comprehensive home insurance policy will cover the repair of your home, or it will pay an amount up to the maximum you select when you take out the policy. The broadest range of possible conditions are covered, including a higher level of policy and value limits. A comprehensive home insurance policy can also include additional benefits, including covering the costs of alternative accommodation, hidden gradual damage, key and lock replacement, landscaping cover for damage to your gardens and natural disaster cover.

basic home insurance

A more basic and less comprehensive home insurance cover with more cost effective premiums. This form of cover is best suited for those who wish to have some form of protection but cannot manage the more comprehensive policy premiums. Basic home insurance will generally insure the value of your house to a lesser amount. With a more basic package, some of the additional benefits may or may not be present.
