Mobile home protection

Mobile homes can be an excellent option for family getaways, as they include many home comforts. It’s a freedom like no other. But owning a mobile home is also a significant investment that you should think carefully about financial protection from suitable insurance cover.

Mobile home protection forms part of our wider caravan insurance offering, and if you’re considering buying a property, mobile home insurance can help to protect your investment.

This policy helps to safeguard your home’s structure and contents in the event of theft or damage. It can also offer a few handy extras for additional reassurance, such as emergency travel cover following an insured claim.

What is mobile home insurance?

Mobile home insurance is similar to home insurance, but designed for prefabricated static caravans.

It’s a policy that helps to financially safeguard your mobile home from specific risks property owners may face. For example, mobile homes located close to the coast can be vulnerable to winter storms. That’s why storm and flood cover can be included in the policy, depending on your postcode, as it can help protect your property against extreme weather. Our storm and flood cover can help to safeguard against loss or damage, including the re-siting of your unit if necessary.

Our insurance for mobile homes can offer you the reassurance that your mobile home has cover in place if the worst should happen.

Mobile home insurance FAQ

Please note that these frequently asked questions are not a substitute for the policy wording. For full terms and conditions please see the policy documentation.

As with any standard property policy, several factors can influence your mobile home insurance premium, including:
  • Location – for example, a mobile home in an area where flooding is common may result in a higher premium than a home located far from the floodplain
  • Size – large properties tend to incur higher premiums when compared to properties with small floor plans
  • Value – the rebuild or replacement cost of your mobile home can influence the price you pay for insurance
Our residential mobile home insurance policies typically cover both your mobile home and its contents, depending on your requirements. For example, contents cover can includes sports equipment, furnishing, and fittings. For the full details of what’s included, see our policy wording.
While our mobile home insurance policies offer broad coverage, there are some exemptions. For example, depreciation, deterioration, manufacturing defects, and general wear and tear are not covered. Additionally, damage by pets, moths, or vermin is not covered.

While theft is covered, theft by deception, such as fraud, is not. Please read the policy wording to find our complete list of exclusions.

Typically, mobile homeowners can need enough protection to cover the cost of rebuilding their property in the event of damage. However, be mindful that if you miscalculate this figure, you could be underinsured and less likely to receive enough to repair or rebuild your mobile home, should the worst happen.

No, mobile home insurance is not a legal requirement, but many people take this practical step to help protect their mobile home and contents from loss or damage.
