Imagine you have the power to pick up your house and turn it upside down. All the household items that fall out are considered 'contents' (except for some things, such as cars and pets) and can be covered by AAMI Home Contents Insurance. Things left behind - like fences, light fixtures, solar panels, pergolas...even spas - may be covered by AAMI Home Building Insurance.

Sum Insured (Home Contents)
The total amount you choose to insure the contents of your home for. It's the maximum we'll pay to repair or replace them in the event of an incident.
It's important that the 'Sum Insured' accurately reflects the replacement value of your contents.
Some content items have a 'fixed limits', which is the most we'll pay for that particular item. For example, the most we'll pay for refrigerated food is $400 in total.
Some content items have 'flexible limits', which can be increased on request for an extra premium. For example, carpets have a limit of $1,000, unless you choose to specify it on your policy and increase the limit.

Home Contents Insurance
You should insure your contents for their new for old replacement value. There are 3 types of contents that can be covered under the policy:
- Specified Contents
- Optional Extra Cover for portable valuables (accidental loss/damage cover at and away from the home)
Our Home Contents Policy covers the replacement or repair of your damaged or destroyed contents at current cost. This means it’s very important that you value your contents, on a regular basis, for their current cost of replacement if they were completely destroyed. The value you decide upon will be the amount your contents will be covered for.
Very pleased with the ease of obtaining our first home contents policy. For someone who has never owned a home, I have to say the website and online platform was very easy to use and navigate, very well equipped and comprehensive.
