What your contents policy covers

We cover your belongings if they're lost or damaged while they're in your home or temporarily being used elsewhere in New Zealand.
We'll repair or replace your belongings as if they were new, except the items specified in the policy as being covered for present value only. For belongings like books, clothing, computer software and camping equipment that are covered for their present value, we'll either pay the cost of repairing them to the condition they were in before the loss, or we'll pay you what they were worth. There are limits to the cover we offer for valuable objects like cameras, surfboards, bicycles and jewellery but you can arrange a higher level of cover by specifying these items in your policy.
If you can't live in your home because of a loss covered by this policy, we'll pay for other accommodation for you, your family and your pets. We'll also pay to move your belongings to your temporary accommodation or to a secure storage facility, as well as the cost of moving them back home when the time is right.
We'll cover your belongings while in transit to your new home.* If you are storing your belongings in commercial storage facility we'll cover you for up to six months, provided we have approved the storage arrangements. *Cover is for defined events only.
We cover up to $2,500 per annum for hidden gradual damage to your belongings, which is hidden rot, mildew or deterioration caused by water leaking from an internal water pipe or tank.
We'll cover your legal liability if you accidentally damage someone else's property or if you accidentally injure somebody. Provided they're approved by us in advance, we may also pay your legal fees. There are exceptions to this cover such as for damage caused by your vehicle or watercraft.
If you have an office at home, we'll cover loss or damage to the furniture and equipment provided you own it. If you take the furniture and equipment somewhere else, the limit does reduce significantly.

This doesn’t apply where: The house is tenanted or vacant Water has leaked from another source, for example the roof or guttering, or a washing machine or dishwasher The damage is not hidden.
You’re covered for any sudden and accidental loss to the home that occurs during the period of cover caused by a natural disaster, subject to the following:
Where EQC Cover applies
  1. If that loss is covered under the EQC Act, or would’ve been but for:
    1. the application of an excess under the EQC Act,
    2. a failure by you to correctly notify a claim to the Earthquake Commission within the time required under the EQC Act,
    3. a decision by the Earthquake Commission to decline a claim or limit its liability for that loss in whole or in part and for any reason whatsoever,
    4. any act or omission on your part, the part of your agent, or the part of the Earthquake Commission, and the cost to repair or rebuild the part of your home that suffered the loss exceeds your maximum entitlement available (or that would’ve been available but for the reasons in 1. a. to d. above), for that loss under the EQC Act (plus the excess under that Act), we’ll pay the difference between that maximum entitlement (plus that excess) and the cost to repair or rebuild the part of your home that suffered the loss.
  2. The most we’ll pay under this benefit is the difference between that maximum entitlement (plus the excess under the EQC Act) and the total sum insured.
Where no EQC Cover applies
  1. Where your claim for loss to the home under this benefit is for, or includes, any part of the home that is not covered under the EQC Act, then the excess will be the higher of:
    1. $5,000, and
    2. the excess otherwise applicable to the claim under this policy.
    Some examples of parts of the home not covered under the EQC Act are: ` gate or fence, ` driveway, ` patio, path, paving, tennis court or other artificial surface, ` swimming pool or spa pool which is not an integral part of the building.
You will have to pay an excess of $250 when claiming for things like a broken window, toilet bowl or fixed glass lampshade. For belongings like books, clothing, computer software and camping equipment that are covered for their present value, we’ll either pay the cost of repairing them to the condition they were in before the loss, or we’ll pay you what they were worth. There are limits to the cover we offer for valuable objects like cameras, surfboards, bicycles and jewellery but you can arrange a higher level of cover by specifying these items in your policy.
We'll pay up to $500 to replace the locks or equivalent devices if your keys are lost or stolen, including the keys to a safe or strong-room.
We'll cover your legal liability if you accidentally damage someone else's property or injure somebody, and it is caused by or in connection with ownership of the home. Provided you check with us first, we may also cover your legal fees.
We'll cover your home if it is damaged by a fire or explosion that's intentionally caused by a tenant or someone living in your home other than you, your partner or a family member.
If your home is completely destroyed we’ll pay you $1,000 to compensate you for stress. You can spend this on whatever you want.
Note: This is just a summary of the benefits provided in your cover. Please refer to your policy document wording for full details.

What do you get if we accept your claim?

Not all contents are insured for their replacement. Learn when we’ll repair the contents, when we’ll replace them and when we’ll pay you for them.

All contents are covered for replacement, except those listed in 'Contents covered for present value' and any item you choose not to repair or replace.

For contents covered for replacement, we can choose either to pay the cost of repairing an item as close as possible to its condition when it was new, or the cost of replacing it.

The items we cover for present value are:

  • Books.
  • Clothing and footwear.
  • Records, audio tapes, video tapes, compact discs and digital versatile discs.
  • Computer hardware that’s more than 5 years old.
  • Computer software.
  • Camping equipment.
  • Watercraft and their parts and accessories,
  • Parts and accessories of motor vehicles, motor cycles, motor scooters (other than mobility scooters), trailers and caravans that are not in them or attached to them.
  • Parts and accessories of aircraft or other aerial devices that are not in them or attached to them.
  • Household linen.
  • Sports equipment.
  • Bicycles.

If an item is covered for present value, we can choose either to pay the cost of repairing it as close as possible to its condition immediately before the loss happened, or to pay its present value.

‘Present value’ means the reasonable cost to repair or replace the item in New Zealand – so that you have an item that is of an equivalent age, quality and capability and that is in the same general condition.
