Depending on the level of your home contents insurance, your appliances may already be covered against loss or damage in the event of a fire, theft or water leaks for example. Accidental damage can usually be added as an optional extra, however it's unlikely that they'll be covered for electrical or mechanical failures which is why Appliance Insurance is so appealing.
Appliances come with all sorts of warranties, which normally last 12-24 months. But most manufacturer's warranties don't cover for things like accidental damage or breakdowns due to electrical faults, which are very common causes of appliance breakdown. Opting for Appliance Insurance means you will automatically be covered for both of these and you will be able to get the appliance fixed as quickly as possible.
