What is park home insurance?

Park home insurance is a form of financial protection that covers park home owners against the various risks associated with park home ownership.

Owning and living in a park home has tons of benefits, such as lower running costs and an increased sense of security, but like anything—it’s not without risk.

For example, things like theft, fire, and damage are risks associated with owning a park home. However, park home insurance is specifically designed to protect against these.

What does our park home insurance cover?

Why should I consider park home insurance?

If you live in a park home, it’s important that you have insurance that reflects your different needs as a park home owner compared to a traditional homeowner.

For example, let’s say a bad storm hits and causes severe damage, or you find yourself in a legal dispute with your site owner. Without the right park home insurance, events like this could leave you substantially out of pocket.

Not only are you understandably protective of your park home, but you know better than anyone that repairs can be expensive should anything go wrong. So, while there’s no legal requirement to have park home insurance, you run the risk of suffering serious financial loss by not having it.

How much does park home insurance cost?

The cost of your park home insurance depends on several factors, such as the monetary value of your park home, where you live, and the level of cover you choose.

Why do I need park home insurance?

If you live in a park home, you’ll want to ensure you and your home are protected—in the same way you’d want standard home insurance in place for a bricks-and-mortar home.

Living in a park home can be very different to living in a traditional home. It also carries different risks, so you need cover that reflects those differences. Without it, you could be left substantially out of pocket.
