With GrovesJohnWestrup Private Clients Contents “all risks” cover, you can replace your damaged or lost contents on a new for old basis, with no depreciation for wear and tear.

Extended Replacement Cover
If it costs more to replace your damaged or lost contents than your sums insured, we’ll pay anyway. That’s because we provide extended replacement cover for up to 150% of the sum insured so you don’t have to worry about being underinsured.
E-bikes and E-scooters
If your e-bike or e-scooter is damaged or lost anywhere in the world, we’ll pay to replace it.
Security Upgrades
If you are a victim of a physical criminal assault in your home, we want you to feel safe again, so we will pay up to £25,000 toward the cost of upgrading your alarm and security systems.
Damage by Pets
If your domestic pets chew, scratch, tear or foul your belongings, we’ll pay up to £10,000 to repair or replace them.
New Acquisitions
We automatically cover new items you have purchased or been given for 90 days, and for up to 25% of the contents sum insured, so you don’t have to worry about getting cover for them immediately.
