London, UK (PRWEB) May 9, 2009
Post Office Home Insurance is warning sun-seeking homeowners to be vigilant and take care that any items left in the garden overnight are adequately covered on house insurance policies. As the UK enters the bank holiday season, many UK residents will be spending more time in their gardens, drastically increasing the chance of expensive gardening tools or furniture not covered by home contents insurance being left out for the taking.
Post Office Home Insurance urges home owners to check their policies as some insurance companies include garden contents only as an optional extra on contents insurance plans. Keen gardeners or DIY enthusiasts should also make sure the cost of their tools is provided for by their home contents insurance policy, particularly if these items are kept in aor likely to be left outdoors for any length of time. Some surveys estimate that the average can contain £888 of property, and that 93 per cent of home owners have admitted to leaving expensive items in the garden overnight.
Garden and patio furniture, ladders, barbeques and even children's toys can be covered by contents insurance, so savvy homeowners should make sure any items left in the great outdoors overnight are provided for.
