Do you have your personal affairs and house possessions in order, so you can hit the road with a clear head space? 

Please do contact us if you want to make sure you have your contents insured to their full value, or if you have items to specify (valued at over $5,000) that you would like to add before you head away. 

We have attached the contents checklist for anyone wanting to reassess their contents Sum Insured amount - this is handy tool with alerting you to any items that may have slipped your mind.


Simple steps to checkoff before leaving home for your holidays…

  • Stop or forward any mail, newspapers, or other deliveries - or ask a neighbour or trusted friend/family member to clear your mailbox.
  • Review any bill payment schedules, and arrange pre-payments for any of the following: utilities, rent, mortgage, phone etc. This avoids utility shut-offs, late fees, and credit damage!
  • Contact your credit card companies and inform them of any travel plans, especially if travelling to exotic destinations! Pre-warn them of any possible charges or (more frequently) spending that may occur from various & unusual locations. We also recommend that you arrange prepayment for minimum payment amounts, to avoid any late charges.
  • A handy tip - arrange for your lawn to be mowed and watered while gone, which will help to avoid calling attention to an unattended house, and means you come back to a well maintained property!
  • We strongly recommend not to hide things - for example don't leave a house key under the doormat! Also be sure to put any jewellery or other valuables in safety deposit box.


That's all from us for now, except to share that we have some exciting changes coming up in the new year - Axico is on the move early 2018! More details to come at a later date, so be sure to keep watching this space.

Otherwise, best wishes to you and please do contact us with any queries or concerns that you have over the coming weeks - as always we are more than happy to help or reassure wherever we can!


Wishing you all happy, healthy, and prosperous times

Warm Regards
