Britannia Parks launches consumer insurance package
Working alongside Cobra Insurance, Britannia has used its specialist knowledge and expertise to design the buildings and contents scheme for park homes as this market is not as simple as standard 'bricks and mortar' insurance.
Britannia believes its insurance product will be around 10% cheaper than many residents' current building and contents insurance! Though at the moment it is only offering the product to residents on its own 20 parks - with representatives on the parks on a regular basis to deal with residents' insurance needs - it is planning to offer insurance services to all park home residents shortly.
Britannia director Richard Sigsworth said three levels of cover woiuld be available, starting at just £286 for 12 months' building insurance and cove r for the home's contents and personal possessions.
For just a little extra, items such as garden furniture and tools, computers, wshing machines and other appliances can all be protected.
But whatever level is chosen, said Richard, the homeowner can be confident that the cover has been structured exclusively for residential park dwellers.
"Standard house insurance, on which most people have relied so far, doesn't take into account the many important distinctions between the two different types of properties," he added.
"In particular, the method of construction and the relatively greater cost of the materials in brick-built properties can mean that owners are paying over the odds for buildings cover.
"Our policies also take into consideration the generally lower incidence of theft from homes on residential parks - even if nearby urban areas are in a higher risk band."
The company will not only be offering buildings and contents insurance, but also travel insurance, motor insurance and life cover.
