Extended Warranty Insurance and your domestic appliances
As a homeowner, one thing you may have to contend with is the breakdown and replacement of your basic white goods - so your cooker, fridges, freezer, vacuum and washing machine etc.
The household goods that may also be liable to breakdown could also include other things such as microwaves, possibly even a TV or DVD player.
And have you noticed how these things always seem to break down just as their existing warranty has expired, leaving you facing repair or replacement costs, as well as the associated hassle of getting out an engineer to look at your appliance?
You might want to consider having an annual extended appliance warranty package which can cover up to 10 appliances from as little as 11p per day, per item (if you insure 6-10 items under one package).
As long as the appliance is no older than 8 years, and even if it is second hand (say you bought a fridge on Ebay or moved in to a home where you inherited the existing white goods), then cover is typically available.
The beauty of a multiple appliance warranty insurance product is that it also saves you money, as any repairs are cost-free. There are no call-out charges, no excess, labour or costs for parts.
If the appliance is not repairable, then all or part of the replacement cost is covered by the insurance, depending on the age of the product.
What happens if an appliance goes KAPUT?
If one of the appliances covered within your insurance stops working, all it takes is one phone call to our friendly UK call centre. If they cannot fix the problem by talking to you over the telephone, then a trusted engineer will be sent out as soon as possible to inspect the device.
It couldn’t be simpler.
KAPUT extended appliance warranty insurance is a household friendly product offering which can save you money on your home appliance maintenance and replacement costs, as well as time and hassle.
In a press release we issued earlier this year KAPUT warned that as many as 70% of consumers failed to appreciate the way in which warranty insurance works and that the age group most likely to have this gap in their knowledge are 45 to 54 year olds.
