My Guide to Buying Insurance for your Bike
#11
Blackers what's the deal with finding good contents insurance when you rent somewhere?

As tenants we have to take out specific insurance for accidents etc towards the landlords property. But it doesn't cover possessions I think?

I don't have anything at the mo as I don't really have any high value possessions as effectively the bikes are covered at my dad's place. But should really nip it all up. Would it be easier to go bike specific? So it just follows me around?

You just need a standard contents policy with cover for accidental damage. don't let the letting agent tell you anything different.
If you add cover for personal possessions away from the home and specify the bikes they will be covered anywhere, subject to policy conditions (security and the like).
Just stick your details into GoCompare and give me a shout if you need to.

Mine is contents only cover with the bike specified, laptop specified and £30K contents with accidental damage, and I believe (without checking) the bike covered away from home for £152.

slightly more for me, but I added in bells and whistles.

Hey all,

My friend and I are currently looking at various different places to rent, I'm hoping I can get somewhere with some garden space and possibly a shed... The question is, what options are available for ground anchors that I can screw into the ground to provide a base for a secure lock?

Ultimately if it's too much hassle they will be living indoors...

example of an anchor:

I got a ground anchor and big chain from here http://securityforbikes.com/index.php

I did have to borrow a massive drill with a 12 inch bit to install it, but that was half the fun!

If it was just my place it would be a no brainer... My perfect place is a 2 up 2 down with the front room as my workshop area, and then the living areas out the back. Smile

Nearly fell foul of the new M&S policy as well.  Insurance docs came just before Christmas and I only just read them and saw the £2000 per bike limit

Looked into it and they want an extra £60 a year to cover both bikes, however on comparison I can only get it a fiver cheaper elsewhere and as the lady I spoke to was so helpful I'll stick with them for now
