How quickly will I get my replacement phone after I claim?
We know that mobiles matter, which is why we’ll aim to get you yours within 24 to 48 hours of your phone insurance claim being approved.
What replacement phone will I receive? Will it be the same?
Where possible, your replacement phone will be the same make, model, and colour as before. If this is not possible, or it’s no longer produced, we will provide a phone that’s as close as possible to the original in terms of value and features.
Your phone will either be brand new or refurbished as new – you won’t be able to recognise the difference though. It will also have a warranty.
Will my replacement mobile phone or tablet be brand new?
Your policy is not a ‘replacement as new’ policy so all mobile phone or tablet replacements may be either brand new or refreshed devices – all devices will also come with a warranty.
The quality of refreshed devices is so high you won’t be able to tell the difference compared to the new devices. Although standards are extremely high, please note that refreshed devices may hold some non-original parts.
Is there a minimum or maximum cover period?
No, there is no minimum or maximum period of cover. If you choose to pay annually, we will let you know your cover is coming to an end two weeks before the renewal date. If you don’t tell us otherwise, we will automatically renew your phone insurance policy.
Can I insure an old device?
Yes, but all mobile phones or tablets must be purchased from a VAT registered UK supplier within the last 36 months (from the policy start date).
Does my device have to be genuine?
We only offer mobile phone insurance cover for genuine devices. That means if you have a non-genuine device then we won’t be able to cover it.
How much is my excess?
Your excess can be found in your Policy Excess documents.
Why do I have to pay an excess?
Unlike other insurance providers, we do not increase our premiums after you make a claim. Therefore, we ask that you pay the compulsory excess so we can keep our prices low for you. In the meantime, you can trust that we will handle your claim promptly and professionally.
Is there an age limit to insure a device?
To take out a policy for yourself you must be 18 years old or over and a UK resident. If you are under 18 years old, then a consenting family member can take out the policy on your behalf.
Who takes the money from my account or credit card?
We will appear as Pier Insurance on all banking statements.
Who does my policy cover?
It is possible for parents to insure their children’s phone on their behalf. The cover of your gadget will apply to you as the person who purchased the policy and your immediate family. This includes your mother, father, son, daughter, husband, wife, partner, brother, sister, grandparent or grandchild that permanently lives at your given address.
My question has not been answered by the FAQs. Is there someone at the end of the phone who I can ask?
What’s not covered?
Please check through both the Policy Excess, and IPID (insurance product information document) to check for what is not covered by your policy.
