All these items are included:
- Household goods
- Electronic items
- Furniture and furnishings
- Floor coverings
- Internal blinds, curtains
- Relocatable light fixtures
- White goods
- Clothing and other personal effects
- Children’s toys
- Specified contents
- High risk items
What does contents insurance cover?
Your contents are covered in the event of fire, storm, flood, earthquake, theft, or malicious damage by an intruder.
What’s more, some personal items are covered away from home, these include bicycles (as long as you lock them securely!), mobile phones, jewellery, rings and wedding bands.
Is it only material things that are covered?
Surprisingly… no. CHU Contents Insurance for Strata includes liability cover as well, which covers the death or injury of someone in your place.
What is not covered by contents insurance?
Unlike home and contents insurance, CHU’s simpler contents insurance does not cover the building as this is usually covered by strata insurance. Nor does contents insurance cover normal wear and tear, any intentional damage, gardens and plants, pets and animals, loose gemstones, or items such as powered watercraft, caravans, motor vehicles, inground pools and spas, caravans or trailers.
