OUR SERVICES

DESKTOP ASSESSMENTS

Perhaps you’re wondering how we can work out how much your building would cost to completely rebuild, without visiting your property? 

SITE ASSESSMENTS

We do site surveys too. Occasionally, some buildings have features that make a visit essential. Or maybe that's just the way you prefer it?

The easy, affordable and professional way to ensure your buildings are insured for the right amount.

Insurance can be complicated. And when it comes to insuring your buildings, something called the Average Clause can easily catch you out. But don't worry! We're here to help explain the problem and put it right - easily, professionally and affordably.

At RebuildCostASSESSMENT.com we tackle underinsurance...

We believe in thorough professional assessments of buildings, that are affordable and easy to arrange. Most of our assessments are completed remotely and when we do surveys on site we always do our homework before arriving. So, by combining clever information technology with our in-house expertise, we make building insurance valuations work for you.

WHY DO I NEED A REBUILD COST ASSESSMENT?

If you're a property owner, it's your responsibility to tell your insurer how much your building should be insured for. However, property owners aren't property reinstatement experts. But we are! 'Regulated by RICS' we use our knowledge and experience to give you a reliable 'rebuild cost', which is the amount you should always insure your building for.

IS MY BUILDING FULLY COVERED?

Insurers call it the Average Clause and it's their way of making sure you only get what you pay for. If the amount you insure your building for is too low, then the Average Clause can significantly reduce how much you can claim. If you insure too high, you end up paying your insurer too much. Find out more about the Average Clause and why a buildings insurance valuation is essential... 

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“A friend had all kinds of problems with an insurance claim because his house was under-insured. I didn’t want the same to happen to me and with help from my broker I found Rebuild Cost Assessment online. Turns out I was under-insured as well, but now everything’s been put right. No fuss, no hassle, great service!
