Good morning

Just a reminder that Walker Midgley have a Quote & Buy website aimed specifically at Individual Modellers and Model Engineers.

You can obtain an immediate quote for your personal model engineering insurance requirements, such as cover for your models, workshop, public liability etc. You can then buy the policy straight away and have the documents available and emailed to you immediately. This means you can get a quote, buy the cover, amend and renew your policy - all online - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - at your own convenience.

We have tried to make the, website as user friendly as possible, and early feed back has been very positive. If you get stuck or need a helping hand using the online system, please ring the office on 0114 250 2770 and ask for either Tricia, Amanda, Zoe or Paul, and they will be able to assist you, as the online quote system integrates into our system virtually in real time.

The link to the website is as follows:

Of course, if you don't have access to a computer or just wish to talk to us, please ring the office on 0114 2502770, and we will be happy to help.

Thanks for the reminder, I had printed out the details last time this came up, but my wife has a tendency to tidy up!

How does it work for workshop content? Do people photo log content? Document all tooling they want covered? Or just work out a rough value overall?

I thought advertising on the forum was banned.

I think they've paid as there's an advert on right side of the forum.

As Pete says those who have adverts either in the mags or on the forum are allowed, that is why you get the odd posts from CuP, Meridian, M-DRO, ARC, etc as they help to keep the mags and forum going.

I have messaged them regards some clarification of wording, for example it says that they will only honour a claim if the property is occupied. I'd like to find out if that means being lived in, or actually has people in at the moment of damage or theft... I know it sounds like a daft question but I'd feel more daft if my claim wasn't honoured! More importantly I wanted to know if my workshop is covered as it is remote from my house, but I've yet to hear back.

Hi Pete

No, we just need a sum insured for either the Tools & Equipment cover and Workshop machinery. It is advisable for you to keep your own record, photo's, receipts, inventory etc as this can useful in the event of a claim.

Hope this helps.

Hi John

In the Individual Modellers policy, unoccupied is defined as when your building has not been used or occupied by you or by anyone who has your permission, for more than 60 days in a row.

The other question depends on how far the workshop is from your house. If you can contact the office on 0114 2502770, we can get some detail from you, and get this answered for you.
