Look after the pennies

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

As the recession rumbles on finances are still a little tight and everyone is feeling the pinch. Some people are opting to save money by compromising on their home insurance which in the longer run is likely to be a false economy.

There are better ways to save money on your insurance and contacting Westhill Insurance is a good starting point.

Look at your options; do you have home and contents insurance under separate policies? Depending on your requirements you could save with a combined policy on your household insurance.

With all the various comparison sites out there people are buying insurance cheaply however it isn't necessarily giving them the cover they need. Cheap isn't always best the key point here is to make sure your specific needs are covered. Westhill Insurance is proud of its customer service and has well versed operators who can give good advice on home insurance.

You can bring your home insurance down by taking simple measures. Fitting an alarm and putting locks on your doors and windows could reduce your premium and makes you less likely to be burgled.

It is a good investment and safety measure to fit a smoke alarm especially if you are a smoker. Smokers usually pay a little more for household insurance as an accident with a cigarette or lighter can easily occur.

Older properties could benefit from dedicated period property insurance but if they aren't quite that old a revamp of heating, plumbing and wiring is a good idea. It could help reduce your home insurance premium as well as leaving your property in a healthy state.

Westhill Insurance covers bike insurance, car insurance, van insurance, home insurance, business insurance, let property insurance, commercial insurance or even public liability insurance. It is willing to talk with you and come up with a tailor-made deal to suit. In the current climate of financial and insurance crisis Westhill Insurance understands the fear of dealing with a large impersonal, unaccountable organisation and sets itself apart as the broker you can speak to and trust.
