Spring Clean Clear Out Makes Evaluating Contents Insurance Easier

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Swinton Home Insurance is urging homeowners to clear out their clutter this spring and in the process make it easier to evaluate their contents.

An online survey of 1200 respondents by Swinton Home Insurance discovered that more and more people are hoarding items, with homes across the country filling up with clutter. The survey revealed 47% never throw un-used clothes items away and 62% never throw electronic products such as old hi-fi's and televisions away.

By hoarding this clutter, homeowners are making it harder to evaluate their contents insurance and so by having a spring clean homeowners will be able to get a more accurate contents sum quoted.

The benefits of having a spring clean also work the other way, as any items lost in the clutter might need insurance and so protects from the underinsurance of items as well.

Steve Chelton, Insurance Development Manager at Swinton Insurance, said: "In a society where products are consumed and replaced so quickly it's easy to accumulate large quantities of un-used products. By having a spring clean clear out it could open your eyes and become clearer and easier to evaluate and quote your contents insurance".
