Powersurge- In the dark with your policy?

load-shedding-candleAs you are all no doubt aware, our national electrical supply grid is under pressure and load shedding is affecting all our households and businesses.

This unfortunate reality increases the possibility of power surge damage when the systems are brought up again resulting in possible insurance claims.

It is important to understand whether you have cover under your policy or whether you need to purchase specific additional cover.

The following insurers have automatic power surge cover on their domestic policies:

  • MUA
  • Aquarius
  • Echelon
  • Discovery

Power surge cover has to be taken out as an additional optional extra at an additional premium if you are with the following insurers:

  • Brolink – Accidental Damage and or Power surge extension
  •  Mutual and Federal – Accidental Damage and or Power surge extension

If you are unsure of your cover the best is to call us to discuss your policy.
