Why is getting insurance for white goods necessary?
Home appliance insurance is often overlooked, but it is a very useful policy that protects homeowners from having to pay for expensive repairs or replacements when their appliances break down. Overall, kitchen appliance covers can be a great asset for boosting your peace of mind and reducing stress in the case of unexpected breakdowns or issues with essential kitchen equipment.
Such cover in the form of kitchen appliance insurance is available from 24|7 Home Rescue. We provide repairs and contribute through vouchers towards replacement following the mechanical or electrical breakdown of, or accidental damage to, an insured appliance in your home.
Kitchen Appliance Cover Explained
Insurance for domestic appliances typically covers the repair or replacement cost of major white goods (such as ovens, dishwashers, freezers, etc.) that are damaged accidentally. This policy could be a suitable option for those who own costly kitchen appliances and are looking for an all-encompassing protection solution. It is also helpful in providing a financial cushion should any valuable items suffer catastrophic failure over time.
Kitchen appliance insurance from 24|7 Home Rescue can help you in the event of appliance breakdowns and cover the cost of repairs. Our policy covers mechanical and electrical breakdowns and accidental damage caused to your insured appliance.
Furthermore, if our expert engineers cannot repair your appliance, which we have been covering for at least six months, after assessing that it is beyond economical repair, then we will contribute to replacement with a voucher worth up to £1,000.
You cannot have multiple appliances covered under a single policy. However, we have different policies for particular appliances. This is because each appliance has a unique price point and requires individual coverage.
Kitchen appliance insurance is a valuable investment that provides coverage for a fixed monthly fee. It’s important to note that purchasing a policy isn’t necessary when buying a new appliance, as most come with a manufacturer’s warranty. However, you can still get coverage if you have an older machine two to three years old or even older.
The manufacturer or extended warranties are typically included with the appliance at the time of purchase but also can be purchased separately and can last up to eight years. It’s important to note that extended warranties may not cover accidental damage, and some may not cover parts and labour.
One of the most significant benefits of appliance insurance is that it covers accidental damage, which is not typically covered by manufacturer warranties or extended warranties. Additionally, appliance insurance provides claims assistance and, in some cases, even appliance replacement, subject to terms and conditions.
Yes, it is! Appliance insurance policies cover the cost of mechanical, electrical, and accidental damage caused to your home appliances used daily. Furthermore, these policies include an excess fee which the insured must pay before any benefits become available. The major advantage of appliance insurance is that homeowners experiencing sudden appliance failure can be reimbursed for some portion of the repair and replacement costs.
Buying appliance insurance can give you peace of mind and a sense of security in case a mechanical, electrical, or accidental failure of an appliance happens when you least expect it.
