We understand that speed is of the essence when you are without your mobile phone or tablet. For that reason, we aim to have a replacement device in your hands within 48 hours of a claim being approved.
Once the claim has been agreed, we will try our hardest to replace your cherished device with the same make, model and colour, and send it to you as quickly as possible. If your device is no longer manufactured, we will provide the nearest comparable model in a speedy and efficient fashion.
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.
There is no minimum period of cover. However, when you purchase annual cover we will contact you approximately two weeks before your renewal date and offer to renew the policy. If you do not tell us that you wish to cancel your policy, we will automatically process your renewal.
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).
No. Non-genuine devices are not covered by our policies. However, we do provide cover for refurbished devices that come with a manufacturer’s warranty or the original proof of purchase (if the device was bought second-hand).
Your excess can be found in your Policy Excess documents.
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.
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.
We will appear as Pier Insurance on all banking statements.
It is possible for parents to insure their children’s phone on their behalf. The cover of your device 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.
Yes! Please call us on 01702 568081 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
Please check through both the Policy Excess, and IPID (insurance product information document) to check for what is not covered by your policy.
We recently brought you some advice on helping your smartphone to run a little faster, but a slow iPad can be just as frustrating, especially if you have one of the older models. Here are some tips to for speeding up your device.
We recently brought you some advice on helping your smartphone to run a little faster, but a slow iPad can be just as frustrating, especially if you have one of the older models. Here are some tips to for speeding up your device:
Get rid of apps you don’t use
It’s estimated that 1 in 4 apps downloaded are never used and just as with your phone, apps take up storage space. Freeing this up makes it easier for iOS to operate. Even within the apps you do still want to keep, it is possible to slim them down by getting rid of some of the larger files within them. Head to Settings- General- Storage and iCloud Usage. Next tap on Manage Storage and look for items that are taking up a lot of space like podcasts and delete them.
Turn off app refresh
This is another culprit of slow running iPads, particularly if you have one of the older models. Head to Settings- General- Background App Refresh and set to off.
This can help speed up your iPad and should be something you regularly consider anyway. Although if you have an older model, just be aware that sometimes updating iOS can introduce features that could actually slow your device down.
Clear the cache in Safari
Clearing the cache should help to speed up the Safari interface. Go to Settings- General- Clear History and Website Data to remove it.
Turn off Location Services
Like with your iPhone, Location Services sits in the background draining your battery life and making your iPad slower than it needs to be. If you aren’t using it, turn it off by going to Settings- Privacy- Location Services.
