One of the ways you can save money is by combining together insurance policies. Many companies out there will give you a discounted price if you go down this route. An example of this would be combining Home & contents insurance into one policy.
You may be eligible to discounts then on the joined up policy. Another way to save some money is to arrange to have all of your different insurance policies under the one insurance company. This is building further on the idea of combining policies.
So you could have your home, car , contents & maybe pet insurance, for example, with the one company, which may result in a further discount. Getting family members to also join the one company is also a good idea, as many insurance companies will offer additional discounts to families.
Now, having that insurance policy in the first place can save you money. Heavens forbid, something may happen to your home, and you do not have any house and / or contents insurance. This could work out to be a very costly oversight.
Many people work very hard, throughout their entire lives, to pay off the mortgage on their home. Month in, month out, they are paying a large wedge of their wage to the mortgage provider. This is a massive financial commitment, the biggest many people will ever enter into. So, to buy a home, take all that time and money to furnish it, and make it your own, and then to overlook or ignore house insurance is foolish.
Say for example, there is a robbery. A lot of your valuable items in your house have been stolen. If you don’t have contents insurance, you will have to replace each and every item (if you have the inclination to) again, straight out of your own pocket. What’s worse is, if your house is in some way damaged, say by fire.
You will have to pay for all repairs yourself, direct out of your pocket. Even worse, maybe the house is inhabitable after the fire. Well, the mortgage still has to be repaid – and you have no where to live. Having a house insurance policy, for a little payment each month, provides a lot of peace of mind, knowing that, if something ever goes wrong (and it sometimes will), you have it covered.
