Even though you may be insured, here are some important tips on how you can reduce the damage and minimise your exposure:
The best protection, however, is to unplug your appliances and electronic devices from the wall socket during a storm.
Where possible, park your vehicle under shelter, particularly in the afternoons when thunderstorms are at their most severe.
Some insurance policies do not automatically include cover for hail damage to motor vehicles. If it’s not covered by your policy, we recommend that you arrange cover because hail damage can result in substantial unforeseen costs.
Good news! If you’re insured under FPM’s comprehensive motor insurance policies, you’re already covered for hail damage.
As a service to all of our valued policyholders, FPM will be sending out SMS alerts ahead of known severe thunderstorm activity to help you avoid any unwelcome events.
