Who are buzzvault?

buzzvault is an award-winning InsurTech start-up, which aims to bring the benefits of technology to the outdated world of home insurance.

Its USP is simple: do a quick, free video call to make sure that you have an accurate figure for the value of your possessions, giving you the exact level of cover you need. You get a quote unique to you, and within 28 days of purchasing your policy arrange a video call, so that they can provide you with a personalised digital inventory on what you own with no hidden costs. Note that if you don’t complete your video call within 28 days, your policy will be cancelled.

And if you ever need to make a claim, your video call will serve as proof of ownership (items above £5,000 also require a proof of purchase or warranty) – allowing your claim to be handled promptly.

buzzvault is regulated by the FCA and underwritten by Great Lakes Insurance SE, which is part of the Munich Re Group, one of the world’s leading reinsurers.

Finding the right cover

It’s important to do plenty of research before buying renters insurance so that you can be certain you’ve chosen the right cover to suit your needs. Policies can vary widely depending on which provider you go to, so check the cover limits and exclusions carefully before buying.

You’ll need to look after your property as insurance is not a maintenance contract and won’t cover damage caused by wear and tear.

You should also make sure it is secured properly, as if you’ve been negligent and someone breaks in, any claim you make is likely to be refused.
