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.

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.
