The whole process of setting people my phone insurance was so straightforward and was done in minutes. My documentation was emailed very quickly and I’m very pleased with the policy. Such positive reviews from other customers made choosing loveit coverit so easy.

I wanted insurance cover for my new phone so scoured the internet. Your website and ease of use was far better than others who wanted a lot of info before giving a quote. Therefore you won my business solely down to your website and at a reasonable price to boot!
