How to properly insure your home contents with BuzzVault.

With the convenience of the internet we can quickly click and purchase financial products with very little hassle. This can be true of Home Contents Insurance,  car insurance, mortgages and even pensions via products like SIPPs. But with speed of application comes human error and more often than not, the products we buy are not actually fit for purpose. One financial product in particular that we often set up incorrectly is our home contents insurance products. That’s why products like BuzzVault (and their unique digital home insurance app) come in remarkably handy.

What is the BuzzVault home insurance App?

BuzzVault is the brainchild of CEO founder Becky Downing. Becky herself once arrived home to a house that had been ransacked and assumed that she was covered under her current insurance policy. However,  just like 70% of the population, she was underinsured and the insurers refused to pay out.

Becky had not kept the receipts of the items she had insured and had little or no physical record of what the items looked like, including model numbers to help ascertain value. This could happened to most people in rented and owned accommodation which is why having accurate student insurance, flat insurance and general home contents insurance is so important.



How to accurately value home contents using BuzzVault and limit your risk?

To understand how BuzzVault works we must first realise that with most insurers customers either have to answer over-complicated questions or simply guess at the value of items. Customers estimating the value of their possessions when considering their home contents insurance will likely assume a value due to missing receipts or personal opinion on the value of an item.

Because the insurers don’t realistically know upfront exactly what they’re covering, there’s no way of knowing if the true value is covered until you need to make a claim. At this point it is usually too late. All too often policies are completely mismatched with the needs of the customer who believes they are insured against all eventualities. This represents poor value for money in a financial product, a horrible customer experience and ultimately lots of wasted time.

This is where BuzzVault comes in. It is one of the only home insurance products that lets you use modern video technology to quickly and easily document and assign value to the things you want covered. This can be particularly helpful in the case of jewellery insurance, artwork insurance and cover for items to be carried outside of the home.

How does BuzzVault use video technology to ensure valid cover of valuable home contents items?

They use short video interviews via their BuzzVault app to ensure that any cover is fit for purpose. This is a simple, cheap and efficient way of reducing risk for them and also reducing the price for you. As part of the quote and setup procedure you can choose to pay in either monthly or annual payments for the home insurance products. There are also no administration fees to make changes and no cancellation fees should you leave.

It’s remarkably quick. A quote via the service can take as little as 60 seconds. By carefully matching your cover to your needs, you end up with a cheaper insurance based on what you actually own. No longer will your jewellery insurance or furniture insurance be based on a guessed value. This in turn lends itself to a quick and easy claims process. A stark contrast to the overpriced, generic cover from other insurance products and their long, uncertain claims processes.

Once you’re up and running with a BuzzVault insurance product, any potential claims are dealt with smoothly. This is because you will not need to provide evidence of what you’re claiming for unless it is valued over £5,000. The short 15 minute video survey you do (with an accredited surveyor) is treated as proof of ownership. Hence smoother, faster claims via their 24/7 UK-based claims service.
