Have you ever wondered how life would be without television? You come home after a hard day at work and relaxing with a beer. You switch on your LCD TV. Nothing happens. You press the remote buttons a few more times. Same result. Your patience is at a low threshold. You check the power source and the electrical lead. Everything checks out. You press the remote once again. The TV does not blink. But something else does, and that is your patience. Does this scene sound familiar?
When does the television fail?
For starters, if the TV is old. You live in an area with frequent power outages. The television has been a second-hand purchase. The manufacturer of the TV has used sub-standard components. (It will be difficult to prove this assertion). Breakdown or TV malfunction can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone.
Safeguarding against malfunction
In the 21st Century LCD TV insurance cover is available. Several reputed insurance companies in the UK are offering attractive terms in safeguarding your expensive entertainment device. Before you can purchase the insurance indemnity, there are certain caveats.
You must ensure that a British registered company has sold the particular television. The invoice will inform the details if you have bought it new. If it is a second-handpurchase, insist from the seller a copy of the bill.
A technical team from the insurance company will appraise the TV. The appraisals include proper earthing (meaning the wall plug is connected to grounded circuits) connection of the television and that the connecting leads have the right insulation.
