With SGIO Home Plus Home and Contents Insurance you can expect a top-quality level of cover for not just your physical house, but the things inside that make it your unique home. This policy gives you the breathing room that comes with underinsurance protection of up to 25% of the sum insured as well as the flexibility to choose your own excess. You’re covered for a host of natural events like a fire, storm, lightning strike, tsunami or earthquake but also if you accidentally damage your own property or if your house is vandalised or burgled. However, you’re not covered for any damage that is of a direct result of a power or storm surge.
At this level of policy you can enjoy the luxury of new for old contents replacement and the peace of mind of knowing that your contents are covered even while you move. This includes cover for jewellery up to the value of $2,500, credit cards to the value of $5,000 and any tools of the trade to the value of $2,500. The beauty of combining both your home and contents insurance with this policy is that you’re also covered for building materials and landscaping as well as any gates or fences you have on your property. It is worth noting that while this cover is pretty comprehensive you will have to opt for any personal medical equipment to be covered as an optional extra. Also, while the contents of your home office is covered as part of Home Plus Home and Contents Insurance, if you’re a keen photographer you will have to elect for additional cover for your camera and its equipment.
SGIO also offers a couple of attractive discounts for customers looking to insure both their home and contents at the Home Plus level of cover. If you have a clean claims history you will be able to save as much as 25% in the form of a no claims bonus and could accrue a further 25% loyalty discount depending on the amount of policies you have with SGIO and the number of years you’ve maintained a relationship with the insurer.
Who it's good for:
This policy is a great option for Western Australians looking for a comprehensive level of cover at a surprisingly competitive price. If you have your car or travel insurance with SGIO, make the most of the generous loyalty discount and save on your premium.
SGIO acts as NRMA’s Western Australian arm, so you’ll only be able to take out this policy if you’re a resident of Western Australia. Also be aware that if you prefer to pay your premium monthly, you’ll be paying extra than if you were to do so annually.
