How Can I Make Sure My Shed is Covered By Insurance?

Unfinished shedYour shed is a small extension of your home; it houses so many items of value and you might spend a significant amount of time in there. The four walls of your shed protect big investments such as garden equipment, power tools, even cars, caravans and boats, and you need to ensure that they are sheltered by a strong structure, designed and engineered correctly with approved materials and installers.

It is important to make sure that your shed is constructed by a professional installer, with shire approval and permits to keep them insured under specifically stipulated home insurance policies. You also need to ensure it is constructed with quality materials.

Many insurance agreements refer to payout exclusions clauses such as “of a faulty design” or “do not comply with the National Construction Code (BCA)” – www.shedsafe.com.au
