Coast now offering home insurance

We’re delighted to announce our expansion into the household cover market with the launch of a new home insurance product.

From January this year we will offer three home insurance policies – buildings only, contents only and combined building and contents cover – which will be underwritten by Zurich Insurance plc.

Our new home insurance offers fantastic levels of cover including protection for your property and its contents (including personal possession cover up to £1,500), along with built-in garden cover and family legal protection up to £50,000.

Plus, in the event you need to make a claim, we offer a 24-hour support line to get the issue sorted as quickly as possible.

We’re also offering discounts to customers who already have caravan insurance or motorhome insurance with Coast.

To support our new home insurance offering, Coast has created a new Household and General Insurance division and recruited consultant Robert Hawkes to oversee the department. Hawkes has five years’ experience in the commercial and retail insurance sectors and has worked for companies in both London and the South East.

Coast’s Managing Director Robert Tuke said: “Home insurance is a very competitive market at the moment but we believe we have a product that is equal to, if not better than, those being offered by our rivals. We’re delighted that Robert has come on board to drive this project forward and we hope this is the first of many new offerings that Coast will be launching in 2014.”

Robert Hawkes, Household & General Insurance Consultant at Coast, added: “I am very excited to be working with Coast on this great opportunity. They are a well respected firm and I believe we will quickly establish ourselves as a contender in the home insurance market.”
