What is All Risks insurance?

All Risks insurance is a special type of cover that is available for possessions that could risk getting lost or damaged in or away from your home. For example, if you leave your laptop in your car and it gets stolen, All Risks insurance would cover that loss. It’s the type of cover that you never knew you needed until something bad happens to your highly valuable items. All Risks cover is split into two categories: specified and unspecified.

Specified All Risks insurance is cover for items that belong to you and are valued separately in your schedule. For personal All Risks cover, these items include laptops, cellphones, cameras, bicycles, and more. Did you know that if your bakkie or vehicle has a roll-top cover installed, insurers will discount your personal and/or business All Risks insurance?

Unspecified All Risks insurance would be cover for your clothing and personal belongings that you take with you when you leave the house. Unlike specified All Risks insurance, unspecified All Risks has a ‘per item’ limit as stated in your schedule.

  1. Before you commit, talk to an insurance broker.Insurance brokers are experienced professionals in their field and can equip you with the right information, right cover and right price to help you with the cover you need. As insurance brokers, our goals is to make your life easier.
  2. Consider accepting a higher excess with a lower premium. If you’re in a place to pay out an excess in the event of a logged claim, we suggest this method. You will pay a lower premium, but insurers catch you with a high excess. Discuss this option with a broker to gain insight and an expert’s opinion.
  3. Don’t settle for less just because you’re paying less. Don’t just go ahead with the first insurance company you reach out to. Shop around and see what cover you can get for the premium you’re paying. If you don’t have the time or aren’t sure of how to get started, let Compendium take the weight off your shoulders.
  4. Keep a register or portfolio of assets that you want to insure. It’s easy to lose track of what’s insured and what’s not. A portfolio will help you identify if you’re paying insurance on items that you may not even own anymore.
  5. House your insurance under one insurer. Generally speaking, you’re likely to get a discount on your premiums if you bundle your insurance with one insurer.
  6. Assess your lifestyle and address what’s changed. Before making a decision, think it through carefully and ensure that you’re taking out the right cover for your needs. For example, don’t take out personal All Risks insurance on items that hardly leave your home. Instead, ensure that they’re covered under a home contents insurance policy.
