Flood and fire victims turn to emergency furniture rental
Submitted by Tim Swaddle on 06/12/2018 - Head of Residential
If you have been the unfortunate victim of home flooding, then finding somewhere safe and comfortable to live while your property is repaired will be the top priority.
Sadly extreme weather events and flooding are become more prevalent as an effect of climate change. According to the Environment Agency’s latest Flood Action Campaign, 5.2 million households in England are at risk of flooding and if your property is flooded, you are likely to have to move out of your home for an average of five months. In the wake of such troubling news, it’s reassuring to know that there are options for setting up temporary housing and making your self feel at home, should you ever have to move for this reason.
A house fire is another unfortunate circumstance that might force people from their homes. If you have to move into emergency temporary accommodation and need to furnish it fast, we can help. Click here to read more about our Emergency Furniture Rental Service.
A temporary home to suit your needs
We work alongside leading loss adjusters, loss assessors, temporary accommodation providers and insurers to help people start afresh when they face a forced relocation situation. Insurance policies typically cover expenses for maintaining a second temporary residence while your home is repaired or rebuilt, but temporary housing can be expensive, even if your insurance covers the cost. Check your policy and talk to your insurer to understand what you are covered for.
If you expect your displacement to last fewer than 30 days, then you may be put up in a hotel but if repairs are expected to take several months or more, then you will most likely need to rent another property. This will give you more space and privacy. There is sometimes the option to rent a property that is furnished, but if a furnished property is not available, furniture rental is a convenient option.
