Home Building Insurance explained

Make sure your home building is properly insured (1m 20)

Initial communications were quick and efficient. Repairs were slow to start but there were many homes damaged. The quality of repairs by Jephcotes was excellent and their staff were respectful in our home. AAMI provided a relatively hassle free claim process and our home was made secure and repairs, once started, were completed quickly, to our surprise. We highly recommend AAMI and Jephcotes.
