Household Contents Insurance

Post by Eu-GenixX » Thu 31 May, 2012 3:40 pm

Is there any company anyone can recommend for Contents insurance?

Including specified items for outside the home against loss, accidental damage and theft?

QBE is the front runner for me atm whilst looking for quotes and inclusions...

They may be underwritten by suncorp, but they still have their own separate policies. AAMI were in the same boat, and the claims experience with AAMI is vastly different to that of suncorp.

Suncorp is pretty much the best of all policies, but you will pay for it.

Claims experience is about the best in the country as well.....I should know!

Easy to specify items like laptops/mobiles for full coverage away from home
2 Wheels are so much better than 4 :P

Yeh, I am with NRMA.

I actually WOULDN'T be however they changed their policies late last year to cover FLOOD ;).

I was going to change to Suncorp but I get policy discounts for having the cars with them too etc.

Im with NRMA. THey were over $200/year cheaper than suncorp.

EDIT, thats for home & contents though, not just contents
I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

Before - we had all separate RACQ insurance policies. One for the house & contents, and 2 separate polices for both the Tiguan and the Golf R.

Person from RACQ calls up a few weeks ago, and says that we should combine our policies to save money. So we're like "Yeah we were thinking about that - cool lets do it."

They mail us out some paper work.... the cost is actually $400 MORE than what we're paying individually.

So Jo (cause this is her domain) is like "WTF? Paying 3 separate policies is $400/yr cheaper, than one combined policy - with the same company?"

So the other day she called up RACQ to separate everything again. Magically - the price drops. RACQ can't match their own prices when combining policies.

I reckon it's a bug in their insurance app. LOL
