Home Contents Insurance

Get Cover for your Contents that’s as Good as New

While your memories are priceless, your possessions can hold a lot of value, too. Should your home be broken into, or damaged, the cost of having to replace some or all of these contents at once, could be very high. We can help, with our Home Contents Insurance, which you might be surprised to learn, can start from as little as $4.45 per week.

New for Old Replacement

Our Home Contents Insurance offers new for old replacement as standard on your household contents and belongings. It’s peace of mind for your possessions, and applies even if you accidentally leave a window or door unlocked.

Which is great news for South Aussies, because some of us are a bit forgetful when it comes to locking up. But, if an uninvited guest arrives, you’ll be glad to have your contents covered by an insurer that understands the local market.
