Valuing your home and contents for insurance
It is important to make sure your home insurance provides adequate cover for your individual circumstances.
Buildings and contents insurance.
When you take out a new buildings or contents policy with Methodist Insurance we’ll make it count by giving 20% of your first year’s premium* as a donation to a church or charity of your choice. In doing so your home insurance policy not only protects your home but it also supports the Methodist community.
The people who insure your Methodist church can protect your home too. Since 1872, Methodist Insurance has protected churches and community groups in neighbourhoods like yours. So, who better to talk to when you need to insure your home and its contents?
Choosing the Home Shield policy's buildings and contents insurance means that you don’t need to compromise on cover, the policy can include:
To make certain that you're never underinsured, you should review the value of your household contents and your property whenever you renew your policy. Use our contents checklist to check that you are adequately covered.
You can also save 10% off your premium if you buy your contents and home insurance together. Just call our team on 0345 606 1331 to find out more and to get a quote.
We will send you a renewal pack within 21 days of your renewal date. It will have details of your renewal premium, any changes to the policy wording and cover, and a reminder of what you have told us, so you can update us if anything has changed.
