Christmas is one of the busiest times of year for burglars. Previous years have seen home insurance claims rising in January following December thefts. Darker nights are an ideal time for opportunistic burglars to strike so ensure your home is well lit!
If your home is left empty during the Christmas break, it could be an easy target for burglars. Installing security systems is a good idea and can also reduce home insurance costs. If you’re going away and leaving your home empty for a long time, it’s best to speak to your insurance broker, to make sure you are covered.
If you’ve bought expensive presents ready for Christmas, remember to keep them out of sight! If you’ve bought expensive jewellery it’s worth a call to your insurance broker to make sure it is covered.
Christmas also usually means lots of fairy lights in homes and in the workplace. Check your Christmas lights carry the British Safety Standard sign and make sure to turn them off when you’re out. Also try not to overload plug points with too many lights, as this can be a fire risk.
December is always a good time of year to check that you have the right insurance in place. Speak to Horner Blakey Insurance Brokers if you are in doubt, especially if you have higher value contents or jewellery which may have increased in value.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
