If your home or contents are lost or damaged, the first thing you need to do is to take all reasonable steps to prevent further loss or damage from occurring.

When you make a claim you will need to provide:

  • Your policy number and contact details

  • A police report number (if applicable)
  • Evidence of the value and ownership of any damaged or lost property or goods
