Durham Home Insurance - Utility Warehouse
UW's five-star insurance packages will help keep your contents, home and even boiler safe.
Plus, you can also apply for Bill Protector or Income Protector – which provide cover if you're not able to work due to illness, injury or unemployment through no fault of your own.
And to make sure that you always get our best value for your home insurance in Durham, we get a panel of insurers to compete on price – meaning you'll get award winning coverage at the lowest possible price from our panel.
How does UW work?
At Utility Warehouse, we like to do things a bit differently. We bundle all your home services (energy, broadband, mobile, and insurance) into one, simple bill – helping you save time and unlock savings and benefits.
Even better, we use a team of distributors, called Partners, to ensure you get a package that's tailored to your needs.
