If you think that there’s little chance of your house and its contents being completely destroyed by a fire or other disaster, think again!

The most recent statistics published by the Fire Protection Association of South Africa show that as many as 9 746 fires were reported to have occurred in private homes in one year alone, resulting in losses of more than R573 billion! Considering that the estimated population of South Africa is around 48.6 million, such statistics represent a 1 in 1 200 chance of suffering the devastating impact of a fire.

To make matters worse, the 2012/2013 Crime Report released by the SAPS shows that there has been a 69.8% increase in housebreaking and robberies in the past 9 years (2004/5 -2012/13) with an increase of 3.6% in the 2012/13 financial year alone. Add to this the possibility of damage caused by natural disasters such as floods, storms and lightning, and you’ll see why household insurance is absolutely vital.
