When the lights go out....

"Westhill Insurance – we've got it covered!"

In this day and age we all rely heavily on electricity and without it we do struggle to function. Computers, TV's, cookers, fridge-freezers and a host of other gadgets no longer work and we have to take life back to basics.

Although power cuts can happen occasionally, due to a heavy storm or some engineering works, they don't tend to last very long. However that hasn't been the case for the Bexleyheath residents who have been left without power for almost 48 hours thanks to overhead cables being tampered with by some inquisitive youths.

The power cut has caused chaos across the area with traffic lights not functioning, a local cinema closing as you can't show a film with no electricity, not to mention the number of shops, offices and restaurants who need power to operate.

It hasn't been helpful for home owners either especially those who have just stocked up on frozen foods to keep the kids fed whilst on school holiday. All that food going off is both costly and could have health implications especially if someone decides to use it.

Did you know that you can have freezer cover as part of your home insurance package? This cover would be ideal if you find yourself without electricity for a period of time. It covers damage caused to food due to a sharp rise or fall in temperature.
