Are your property and assets adequately insured?
Fire, flood, storm damage or even a burst pipe. There are many ways your property and assets could become damaged. It is only when you’re affected that you find out whether the insurance you have adequately covers your losses.
To make sure it does, those responsible for arranging cover must provide your insurer with all the correct and relevant information. The following tips will help with this.
The sum insured must cover demolition and clearance costs as well as the cost to rebuild should your premises suffer irreparable damage. You must also include professional fees plus VAT at 20%. As property values are likely to rise over time, we recommend getting a building valuation at least every 5 years. Visit Jonathan Cornes Associates.
If you rent rather than own your premises, check your lease to find out what you, as the tenant, are responsible for such as redecoration costs. Also, if you make any changes to the building, such as adding toilets, you must insure these costs too.
From books and toys to fixtures and furniture, just think what it would cost to replace everything in your nursery, including items that may be out of sight or in storage. When you add it up, you might be surprised by what you have and how much contents cover you need.

Got it right!
We made sure Creche-n-Co had their contents properly covered
Operating from the basement of a college building, Creche-n-Co suffered a major flood on Boxing Day 2015. The bad news was that their entire contents were destroyed. The good news however was they had received regularly cover reviews with us and their Contents sum insured was enough to replace all the furniture and equipment, so they could soon reopen.
What our customers say
“It was only a few years ago we left your company – I think at the time, we considered only price and went for what we believed was a better deal for our office and 5 nursery settings. We now know that it is not until something happens to cause devastation and upset that we fully valued the dedication and service to customer that we have been lucky to experience from the dot2dot team.”
