Joan needed a emergency locksmith in Newcastle upon Tyne after thieves struck, they broke into her home, stole her jewelry and money along with her house keys. She called her insurance company to make a claim.
However her home insurance provider wanted to send an insurance assessor to look at the property, when he arrived he made a beeline for her doors and locks to see if they were insurance approved in other words they were looking to get out of paying out for her claim and they did as her locks were none British Standard, she made a mistake when she bought her home insurance online and she did not read the terms like 99% of people don't.
They did not pay out, not only that they have canceled her insurance for for fraud as she lied on her policy, so now she has had a voided policy which means that she can't get insurance, when she can it's in the thousands, her car insurance has gone from £290 a year to nearly £4000 a year, her life insurance has been void.

Joan is happy now as we fitted all new locks, also beat her best quote by a whopping £150, its a small saving compared to a lesson in how harsh home insurance can be.
