65% of home insurance policy holders have items within their house that are not included on their policies and so would not be compensated if they were claimed upon. Generally this is everything from watches, necklaces and rings to antiques or family items that are worth more than the amount their home insurance covers.

In some circumstances including a valuable or two within your policy bumps up the premiums so much that people often don’t get them covered within their policy, this is where a safety deposit box comes in, there are some great options within the Leicester region.

Safety deposit box or higher premiums on home insurance?
