Protect your home this festive season

Friday 01 Dec 2017

With Christmas just around the corner, many of you will spend the majority of your time out and about celebrating with family and friends and enjoying the festive period.

It’s also a time when your home may be targeted by opportunistic thieves.

There are several measures you can put in place to protect your home this festive season.

Increase security – Install deadlocks on external doors and fit security screens to accessible windows and for added security, an active local or back-to-base alarm system.

Make the property look lived in – If you’re going away, create an impression the house is being lived in with automatic motion-sensors or timed lighting systems and have a neighbour or gardener maintain the exterior.

Adequate home insurance – Ensure you have adequate home insurance should the unforeseen occur during the holiday break. Vero home and contents insurance covers:

    • Loss or damage caused by thieves
    • New for old replacement for all contents
    • Lock replacement
