Theft from garage: covered by contents insurance?

When you take out household contents insurance, not only is your home insured, but also any outbuildings at the same address, such as a garage or shed. So if you have a garage with your home, it is also insured on your contents insurance. The same applies to items in your garden. The basic coverage of a contents insurance usually includes water damage, fire damage, theft, burglary, collision and falling trees. Theft from your garage is therefore included in the basic coverage of a contents insurance.

Theft insurance for contents

A contents insurance offers standard coverage for theft and burglary. Most insurers also reimburse the damage caused by the burglary, for example if the burglars smash a window or break a lock. Do you keep valuables in your garage? Then you might consider taking out valuables insurance. Valuables include not only art, antiques and expensive jewellery, but also a modern laptop, expensive musical instruments and valuable film and photo equipment. A garage is not always used for storing cars, but sometimes also for storing sports equipment or tools, for example. Always take a good look at the theft policy conditions of your insurer. That way, you can be sure that the items in your garage are properly insured.
