When is it worthwhile to have household insurance
Imagine your home burns down due to a fire and all of your furniture, accessories, electronics, decorations, etc. are damaged and need to be replaced – if you can’t afford to pay this amount yourself, it is recommended to have a homeowner’s insurance. Very important is the choice of the sum insured: it depends on the number of rooms and, of course, on the equipment: is it expensive furniture, do you have many, expensive decorations and valuables? The flat rate per room is about 20’000 CHF with a middle class equipment. The best thing to do here is to make an inventory list with your consultant and evaluate the situation.
Private liability in different roles
As a private person, for example, if you damage another person’s object through carelessness, as the head of a family, if your child shatters the neighbor’s window pane with a missed shot while playing soccer, as a pet owner, if your dog bites another person out of fear, as a tenant, if your perfume bottle slips out of your hand and damages the sink in your rented apartment, as a sportsman, as a gun owner, as a cyclist or moped rider, in the case of custodial damage (you keep an object belonging to another person or, for example, you use a colleague’s bicycle and damage it in a fall), etc.
Important: notify us at the time of taking out insurance if you own an animal, engage in equestrian sports, hunt, occasionally drive foreign vehicles. These risks must be listed in the policy for coverage to be guaranteed.
