Protect Your Home This Easter

With the Easter weekend just round the corner, home owners must ensure that they have their insurance cover in place in order to prevent robberies from happening. Esure asks customers to ensure that the items left in the garden and outside are also included within the insurance policy as burglaries are often on the rise during the Easter weekend.

Ladders, garden tools, and toys should be kept away rather than left outside in the open only to attract burglars and opportunists from snatching them. Mike Pickard, head of risk and underwriting at esure Home Insurance said that though Brits spend a great amount of money, time, and effort on making their gardens beautiful and attractive yet they do not spend as much time on their security.

A few simple steps like using security lighting and prickly hedging can help reduce the chances of becoming a victim of garden crime. An earlier study carried out by ICM Research on behalf of esure showed that almost 93% of homeowners regularly leave expensive items out in the garden overnight thereby attracting robbers.
