Home & Contents Insurance

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Covers your home, fixtures and fittings and your belongings.

Home Cover provides peace of mind that if, through specific events, your property is damaged, destroyed or stolen, it can be repaired or replaced. And it will usually be on a "new-for-old" basis, regardless of the item’s age.

QBE offer two forms of cover; Home and Contents Insurance and Home Prestige.

Insurance Calculators

Home Calculator

  • The home insurance calculator will estimate the cost of rebuilding your home.
  • This is the amount you need to insure your home for (known as your ‘sum insured’).
  • QBE's estimate reflects where you live, the size of your home, and the materials / labour needed to rebuild.
  • It will also factor in costs that are often overlooked, such as architect and surveyors’ fees and debris removal.
  • This estimate isn’t the same as your home’s real estate value.

Contents Calculator

  • The contents insurance calculator estimates the cost of replacing your belongings.
  • This is the amount you need to insure your contents for (known as your ‘sum insured’).
  • QBE's estimate will reflect the value of your belongings, including higher risk items such as jewellery, electronics and gadgets.
  • Contents insurance includes new-for-old replacement on most items.

  A few things to remember
  • Costs vary over time, so review your sum insured every year.
  • Re-evaluate your sum insured when you renovate and make new purchases.
  • Accurate valuations can be provided by an independent professional such as a quantity surveyor, valuer or other suitably qualified professional.
  • The cost of rebuilding your home is not the same as its real estate value.
