Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 11, 2011 -- webmoney has just added twenty new articles to their home insurance website, with many more to follow over the coming weeks and months. Via the homeprotect service webmoney takes a fresh approach to online home insurance and, as part of their commitment to deliver a service that is as inclusive as possible, webmoney have created a number of articles designed to help customers deal with their non-standard insurance-related issues. homeprotect is designed to make cover available to the people that need it most, regardless of what their circumstances might be.
From step-by-step guides to getting through a flood unscathed, to run-downs of the best places to buy a holiday home and facts about home improvements to attract a potential buyer. Webmoney aims to include useful advice that applies not only to the millions of people already in non-standard insurance situations, but also to the inestimable numbers of UK residents that will become non-standard at some point in their lifetimes. Webmoney's articles are packed with valuable hints and tips which are hoped will help people in difficulty, whilst simultaneously promoting better awareness of insurance industry policies.
Homeprotect are proud to work in partnership with the independent charity UNLOCK (the National Association of Reformed Offenders), to raise awareness for the 8 million plus ex-offenders in the UK who have difficulty obtaining even the most basic of insurance policies. In support of this goal and to highlight homeprotect's award-wining service for people with unspent convictions, homeprotect are proud sponsors of Insurance and Convictions, the UNLOCK guide to getting insured with a criminal record. Homeprotect have also dedicated a number of articles to the subject on their website, attempting to tackle the complex issues raised regarding criminal convictions and good practice on the part of insurers.
Following up on the Broking Initiative of the Year Award (received at the 2010 British Insurance Awards) which homeprotect won, homeprotect hope to continue offering the same high standard of online insurance services to everyone who needs them. David Walker, Founder and Managing Director, said this after collecting the award:
"This is a fine example of how we can innovate and provide millions of customers with the one thing they have never previously had access to online - a quick and simple quote and buy service, no matter what your circumstances are."
BIA judges were impressed with the homeprotect initiative, based upon offering a competitive online quote to everyone (including the 15% of the market that most home insurers would not consider because they pose "too great a risk"). The overlooked sector of non-standard insurance includes anyone with unspent convictions, homes at risk of subsidence or flood and people working from home; all of which can be covered with home insurance from homeprotect.
