Overestimate scam insurance

published

Tried their online insurance calculation tool. Everything is massively overestimated to rip you off. Sets contents insurance to $185k with $60k clothes and $90k furniture. Time wasting scammers and their policies are also horrid.

Thanks for the generic fluff response without addressing any of my points. Please call 13 70 11 and let your team know their service is terrible.

Always a loophole

published

Have home insurance with them, doesn’t cover electrical faults or accidental damage.
Seems you’d be lucky to have it cover anything, we had a hot water system explode. No cover, we had damage someone else’s animal, no cover. Changing to a decent insurer today.

They charge you cancellation fees of $40.

published

Also, it is not through Auspost, Insurance is through Auto & General Insurance. I had home insurance with AusPost for almost a year. They increased the premium from $40 to $47 straight & it is expensive than my current insurance provider (which has more cover). When I canceled the policy, AusPost charged $40 terming it as early cancellation fees.

it may be cheap but you get what you pay for

published

this was a complete waste of time and money.
I had flooding downstairs from a big storm.
I advised them over the phone. before they came out I had to pay for someone to look at it. and if they considered paying out I needed to pay them the excess outright which could have been $1000?? I've never known an insurance to do this??? I didn't bother. I changed my insurance straight away.

Fast and Easy Sign Up

published

I have used Australia Post Insurance to insure my car for the last few years, and always found the service efficient and fast. So I decided to use them for my Home and Contents insurance. The whole process was done via the Internet, and the price that I obtained for my cover was well under what I was quoted by my previous Insurance Company.
I haven't made a claim, and hope that I never have to, but if the standard is the same as they offer on their Car Insurance then I am not expecting any problems.

Hi Wayne,

The contact number for Aus Post Home and Contents Insurance is 1300 858 747 - available Monday to Friday, 8am-10.30pm and Saturday 8am-5pm (AEST).

You may want to edit your post to remove your name and full address details - even though you've now sold this property, it's always a good idea to avoid posting any personal information on a public website, you never know what scammers can do with this type of information.
