The Warehouse is commonly known as the place to go to fill your kids rooms with plastic toys which will hopefully last a few months, and the place that you want to avoid come Christmas season unless you enjoy hoards of people acting like animals.
But does that mean their insurance follows the same “cut price, made in China” philosophy? Not really, since Warehouse Insurance is underwritten by Vero Insurance, who also own most of AA Insurance, and Vero Insurance is owned by Suncorp Group, the Australian based giant insurance brand.
In fact, when you get a Warehouse Insurance quote online you’ll see the process looks near identical to getting an AA Insurance quote online. Change the distinctive AA yellow to the Warehouse red and play spot the difference. There isn’t much!
This was the hardest part about writing our Warehouse Insurance review, mainly thanks to their website being a small subsection of The Warehouses large eCommerce website.
On most insurance websites you’ll find an about page, blog, sponsorships, community activities, a range of insurance calculators, awards won, press releases, careers pages, and more. On The Warehouse Insurance website there is bugger all information, and some links to get a quote (which opens a quoting engine provided by Suncorp group, and seen on other websites such as AA Insurance and AMP Insurance).
Anyway, below are a few things I liked about The Warehouse Insurance, and a couple things I didn’t like.

As we’ve said a thousand times, the information on this website is not complete and should not be relied upon as a source of truth. The source of truth regarding The Warehouse Insurance is the Warehouse Insurance website, and their policy wording documents.
The Warehouse offers the three main types of car insurance that all the leading brands do: third party, third party fire and theft, and comprehensive (which they call Everyday Plus). They also offer a lifetime guarantee on any repairs to your vehicle which they arrange. The policies are based on agreed value, meaning if your car is written off, you’ll get back the value you agreed upon when you purchased or renewed the policy. Although to be fair, agreed value is pretty common these days.
There are two house insurance policies offered by the Warehouse: Everyday Cover, and Everyday Plus Cover. The Everyday Plus Cover policy provides a little extra piece of mind with some added extras, such as covering damage to your home as a result of physical assault or police investigations into any physical assault or death….which may or may not be of interest to you!
Warehouse Contents follows the same naming convention as their house insurance does with two levels of cover: Everyday Contents Insurance, and Everyday Plus Contents Insurance. Both policies have all the normal things you’ll see in a contents insurance policy wording, such as new for old replacement, cover if you cause damage to other people’s property, and cover for high value items.
The Plus policy covers replacement or repair of burnt out electric motors which are less than 10 years old, and the same benefit that is listed above regarding damage to your belongings as a result of physical assault or death or police investigations into physical assault or death.
