There's a lot to think about when you fly the nest. Keeping yourself safe is suddenly really important, too. Helvetia Youth insurance offers comprehensive insurance cover no matter what your stage in life.
We’re following Chantal for four weeks as she moves out of her parents’ house into her own place. Chantal is 21 and is moving into a shared flat. Here is part one of our story series.
Moving day is finally here. Chantal is moving her things – lock, stock and barrel – into her new home. As anyone who's ever moved house is all too well aware, moving is exhausting. To get it over with as soon as possible, however, Chantal doesn’t take a break and wants to keep going. At some point, though, she starts to flag. She can’t hold her new TV anymore and it slips out of her hands onto the floor. An expensive TV that no longer works – she needs a new one.
When you leave home, there's more to think about than just the move itself: you need the right insurance, too. Household contents insurance covers damage to your possessions. But since Chantal doesn't have any insurance, she needs to pay for the damage herself.
