Acorn Home Insurance
Acorn Insurance offers a range of specialist policies for vehicles and homes, particularly for individuals who have more unusual or difficult needs. The company was founded in 1981 and aims to give customers quality insurance policies at competitive prices. Customers can choose the level of cover that is tailored to their specific requirements, whether they need a basic policy or fully comprehensive protection. Acorn’s main office is located in Formby, a town in Merseyside, near Liverpool, but they also have several other offices across the UK.
Acorn Insurance provides cover for a range of “non-standard” properties such as unoccupied properties, renovations, property developments, properties at risk of flooding, houses with a history of subsidence, and holiday or second homes. They can also accommodate individuals with a troubled history, if they have any convictions or any made previous claims for example. Acorn provides both buildings and contents insurance for landlords and tenants, which may include a number of features in addition to the to the usual cover provided for fire, theft, storm damage, flooding, and other emergency events. These may include home emergency cover (subject to certain terms), lock and key cover, freezer damage cover, cover for garden contents, some levels of accidental damage cover, and increases in cover for special events.
Customers can also purchase some optional extras alongside their cover if they want additional protection. Acorn offers a policy extension that covers personal possessions, such as money and credit cards, when they are outside the home. Acorn can also extend home insurance cover to include commercial activities. They can provide cover for those who work from home, as well as traders who may have stock or equipment stored in their house.
