Or a husband who is distraught because he can’t hear the latest episode of The Walking Dead because the TV’s soundbar has packed in.

With our Electronics Insurance and for just one low-cost monthly fee you could keep your electronic products running for many years to come.

Our policies are there to provide peace of mind and an assurance that if something does go wrong, we will be there for you to get it fixed quickly and efficiently.

  • Issues present before the starting date of the policy.
  • Cosmetic damage to the device that has no impact on its working.
  • Deliberate damage or damage caused by neglect or misuse.
  • Damage caused from using the appliance outside the manufacturers recommended parameters.

I have house insurance. Doesn’t that cover my electrical items?

House insurance may cover your electrical items in certain situations. These are normally emergency events like fire, flood, or theft. Outside of this, you may find that your electrical appliances are not covered, and you could end up out of pocket. Check your home insurance’s terms and conditions if you are not sure.

Don’t I have a warranty on my electrical appliances?

If your appliance is within the first twelve months of its life, then it will probably be covered by a warranty. All new electronic items come with fixed-term cover protecting them from mechanical breakdown and design faults. But eventually, these warranties expire. Our electronic insurance is there to take up the slack home insurance and warranties leave behind.

What about an extended warranty? I’m always offered one when I buy a device.

Extended warranties, as the name suggests, extend your manufacturer’s warranty for a further fixed period of time. The issue with extended warranties is that they will only cover the one device and they stick to same terms and conditions of the original warranty meaning cover may be limited. They are also quite expensive when compared to our Electronics Insurance.

Your policy sounds great but are there any hidden fees?

Worrying that you might be lumbered with hidden fees? Don’t. All our policies offer clear guidance on what is and isn’t covered and we never pass hidden fess for repairs, labour, or parts on to our customers.
