New Thatched Insurance Scheme LaunchedWednesday 23rd February 2011

Higos Insurance Services has launched a new insurance scheme for thatched properties.

The specialist scheme is exclusive to Higos and underwritten by Ecclesiastical, one of the UK's leading insurers with a history of providing cover for church and heritage buildings.

Thatch fires can be devastating, often resulting in a total loss, therefore having the correct cover in place is essential. The Higos thatched insurance scheme offers all the key covers a thatched property owner would wish to have at a competitive price.  The scheme includes the following features:

• Cover on all belongings on a worldwide All Risks basis
• Excellent cover for fine art and antiques
• Discounts where the chimney is not used or where a chimney monitor is in place
• Free chimney inspection 

The service is backed up by a dedicated thatch team offering a high level of advice, support and service which includes handling all quotations, claims and queries.

Ian Gosden, Managing Director of Higos said "We are constantly looking for new and innovative products for our customers. With our new thatch insurance policy we have a market leading product which we believe will allow us to provide cover which is second to none for thatched property owners."
