Insurance Guide

When you consider the construction of your Park Home compared to, say, a typical brick built house, the likelihood of significant damage from strong winds, hail and even flooding is significantly higher. What may be an inconvenient matter of replacing carpets in a house could be a write-off for a Park Home.

Here are a couple of suggestions to protect your home and choose the right insurance policy:-

  • Keep your water system drained when leaving unoccied for an extended period. When leaving your home for an extended period of time, for example if you decide to go away for the fortnight, be sure that you turn the water off at the mains and ensure your water system is drained down, particularly over the winter months. Frost can cause pipes to burst in the home, which in turn will cause an escape of water and potentially significant damage to your home.
  • Ensure that you regularly maintain your property. Insurance policies are not designed to cover wear and tear so it is important that you have your roof and other structural aspects checked regularly to ensure the home remains in a good state of repair. Similarly, regular plumbing and electrics/wiring checks are always recommended. Insurers may check that such maintenance work has been carried out in the event of a claim, so keeping receipts will always be beneficial.
  • Consider Delivery and Siting Insurance.  Many Insurers will happily cover your home, however in the event of your home being damaged beyond repair, it is not just the replacement home itself that you need to worry about. Residential sites will almost always charge you to clear your plot of the debris from the old home and will charge you again to deliver your new home to the plot, site it and reconnect your services. If your home is located on your own private land, you will of course have to pay somebody to do this for you. Ensure that you're covered for these costs or you could find yourself significantly out of pocket in the event of a claim. Our Policy includes all of these additional costs as standard with no additional premium required.
  • Understand the differences between a ‘New for Old' policy and an Market Value policy. Insuring New for Old means you need to make sure your home is insured for the cost to replace with a brand new equivalent from the manufacturer. Insuring on an Market Value basis means you are insuring your home for its current value on the open market. It is important to consider for both types of cover that the amount you insure for is just for the park home itself and does not take into account any increased value you feel the home may have due to its location. If you insure your home for more than it is actually worth you will almost always pay a higher insurance premium but with no additional benefits in the event of a claim. This is one of the reasons why we try to keep your premium as low as we can and do not insure your home for a blanket figure of, say, £500,000 like some of our competitors do.
  • Ensure you know how much Liability Insurance your site requires.  The majority of residential site owners across the country will insist that your park home is insured for Public Liability cover and you may well find clauses in your contract with them to this effect. Pay particular attention to the amount your site asks you to be covered for. Whilst the liability cover offered by Insurers can vary, we provide £5 million cover as standard with all of our policies.


How long will you cover my home New for Old?

If you're a new customer, we are able to offer New for Old cover for homes up to 25 years old.  If you're already with us, we may well be able to continue this cover for longer for you, provided you are maintaining your home in a good state of repair.

What should I do if I need to claim?

In the unfortunate event of you needing to claim under your policy, you should contact us a soon as possible and provide details of what has happened, when it happened and what losses/damages you wish to claim for. At this point your claim will be referred to the Insurers who will correspond directly with you going forward, ensuring everything progresses as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Will my home be insured when I am not there?

Our policy will insure your home when it is left unoccupied, providing it is not left unoccupied for more than 30 days at a time.  You should always advise us if you intend to leave your home for more than a couple of weeks, and it is always best practice to disconnect water, electricity and gas supplies. Certain perils under the policy will be excluded if you do leave your home empty for more than 30 days, details of which can be found in your policy booklet.

Can I cancel my policy?

You are entitled to cancel your Policy within the 14 day cooling off period, under which circumstances you will receive a full refund of the premium you have paid, less any administration fees charged for arranging your Insurance.  After this period, you are able to cancel your Policy and you will receive a refund of premium, less a proportionate deduction for the time you have been on cover and any administration charges.  We will also deduct the value of our clawed back commission.
