Everything in your home has some value, either to you personally or in financial terms. Helvetia's household contents insurance allows you to cover your favourite sofa, your favourite suit or your favourite bicycle.
Whether water damage, burglary or a fire in your home: when your household contents are damaged you need to replace them quickly. Household contents insurance covers the loss. In Switzerland, along with liability insurance, it is therefore one of the most important forms of insurance.
Household contents insurance covers all movable property in your home at replacement value. This applies in the event of fire or natural forces, burglary, robbery, water inside the building or glass breakage. Theft within your home is also insured.
