Video: Claims edition – Jewellery Claims

Claims are often labelled the ‘shop window’ for the insurance industry and although all claims are important, they are rarely more emotive than when very personal items such as jewellery and family heirlooms are lost, stolen or damaged.

In these cases it's important the insurance industry really and truly puts the customer at the centre of the claims process, rather than paying lip service to this often overused term.

As part of Post's Claims video edition, Gary Hindley, insurance services manager at Signet, joined Post to discuss replacement versus refunds in claims, the importance of customer control and what insurers can be doing at first notification of loss in these emotive claims.
