Default Contents Insurance

We will be moving into a holiday appartment and then a rental and therefore will need some contents insurance, just in case we are broken into or there is a fire etc (I know ever the optimist )

Can anyone recommend a company that covers this?

Thanks

Default Re: Contents Insurance

We have just had a really good quote for car and Contents(& tenant) insurance from State.
Just make sure your contents covers the tenant aspect - as you tend to be liable if you are found to be at fault in a house fire/electrical fire etc etc etc....

another vote for state - minimum sum insured for contents in $20k as far as I recall, then you can increase the cover for not a massive amount more.
Agreed that you should make sure that there is liability cover as Insurers of Landlords love suing tenants for leaving pots on the stove, etc......

Went up the Port Hills in the snow and got loads of tiny wee scratches on the sills and bottom of the doors from the grit. Quoted $1800 + GST to get both sides resprayed, as nothing else could be done. AMI said its OK you're covered so we'll pay - I just pay the excess - pretty dang good I reckon.
