Everything you need to know about appliance insurance

White goods and electrical appliances are now part and part of our everyday lives. From washing machines, and ovens, to dishwashers and microwaves.

Our white goods and appliances aid us to do tasks that years ago would’ve taken up a lot of our valuable time. So, it’s no wonder that so many of us are looking to insure these products to protect us in case something goes wrong.

Repairs and replacements can often mean you end up footing a hefty bill unless you have an insurer to take care of the issue for you. Not only can repairs be expensive, but sometimes finding the right tradesperson to welcome into your home can be a stressful situation, and many of us start wondering if it's worth trying to repair at all?

Your right to repair

Truth is, a recent ‘right to repair’ legislation is now requiring manufacturers to make spare parts for appliances available for up to 10 years!

This means a repair will always be a viable option, and with an insurance policy, you’ll never have to part ways with a hefty call-out fee or parts payment. So, not only can insurers guarantee a repair 99% of the time, but they can also provide a stress-free service with their own engineers who will take accountability for the reliability and condition of your appliance. An insurer will have you covered for mechanical, electrical and accidental faults, so unless the fault is cosmetic – you will be completely covered.

With an appliance policy, there is no worst-case scenario, unlike a stand-alone repair! If your appliance was deemed beyond economic repair, your insurance company would provide a like-for-like replacement appliance depending on the cover limit of your policy that would be delivered to your door in a speedy timeframe.

Not only this but there are very few appliances that insurers can’t cover look at the white goods we at BIG cover below:

- Cooker

- Fridge freezer

- Dishwasher

- Washing machine

- Boiler

- Microwave

- Tumble dryer

- Range cookers

- Ovens

The current cost of living crisis means many of us can't afford to be hit with a big payment coming out of our bank account. Appliance cover is becoming increasingly common in the UK to avoid steep repair and replacement fees, and with low price policies and flexible payment plans, it's no wonder.
