Uinsure has introduced improved cover for mobile phones under its home insurance product.
Mobiles can now be covered for their full replacement value.
Uinsure has always covered mobile phones to a value of £500 under personal possessions cover, as well as full cover included for accidental damage, when the item is in the home. This cover remains in place, but the customer now has the choice to specify the phone and be covered up to the full value of the item.
The value of mobile phones has increased noticeably in recent times. For example, the lowest priced iPhone 11 begins at around £750 and the recently launched foldable phones cost up to £2000.
As a result, Uinsure have now increased its cover so a customer’s high value mobile phone is fully protected to its full replacement value anywhere in the world.
Paul Kelly, Uinsure’s chief product officer, said: “It’s brilliant to be able to extend the mobile cover to suit the high value phones in today’s market. We depend on our phones so much for work and our social lives, so ensuring that you’re back up and running as soon as possible is a top priority.
“We’re giving the full specified value once a claim is accepted, meaning you’re never going to end up with a reconditioned or sub-par ‘similar value’ handset. This new improvement to our home insurance strengthens our cutting-edge GI Proposition even more.”
