Washing machines are an essential appliance in the home, with hectic schedules and the increasing speed of family life, it is important to many to have reliable appliances. With the whole family’s washing piling up, having a washing machine out of action for even a couple of days can cause unwanted stress to many.
Whilst washing machines generally come with a guarantee of one year you would expect to have it for many more than this. If your appliance breaks down out of the manufacturer’s guarantee, in the second, third or fourth year, you can find a costly repair bill heading your way, a bill many are forced to pay due to washing machines being such an essential part of daily life.
Washing machine insurance is therefore a great way of guaranteeing that should your appliance breakdown you will not be forced to foot a large bill. Insurance can cover breakdown, accidental damage, parts, labour, call out fees, and the cost to replace the appliance. Many also offer payment options of monthly or annual instalments meaning it can be a wallet friendly option whilst providing you with peace of mind.
Various companies now also offer multi-appliance insurance, instead of just insuring your washing machine, you might want to consider other essential appliances such as the fridge, freezer and oven. All of these, and more, could be insured under one policy with the same insurer through monthly instalments or an annual premium. If you have more than a couple of appliances you consider to be essential, a multi-appliance policy may be worthwhile and will provide protection against breakdown and damage.
