Advanced burglary

As the Christmas holidays approach, more people will be heading away either to get some skiing in or to simply visit their families. It's during this period that home security needs to be up to scratch as it's the perfect time for a burglar to strike.

With technology moving on rapidly so have buglers and what they tend to steal. Big items like supersized TVs aren't so popular but easy to carry DVD players, CDs, laptops and jewellery are very sought after.


There is no worse feeling than coming home to discover your valuables have gone. It is at a time like this that home insurance is important. Having to replace all these items is expensive and although money can't replace sentimental pieces of jewellery it can at least get you a new laptop.

It's important to state any high value items when taking out your home insurance, if not specifically mentioned they might not be covered.

As burglars go for more high tech items they have also found more inventive ways of breaking in. Skeleton keys are easily bought on line and can open any number of mechanical locks. If this is how they break in then you will have a job proving what happened which can mean your insurance won't pay out.

Increasing home security is the best way to prevent any problems. Security markings, a home safe and fitting a bugler alarm are all great ways to ensure they get as little as possible.
