    Freezer insurance claim

    Doing renovations and somewhere along the line the freezer got unplugged.

    Lost a heap of prime meat, has anyone done an insurance claim? 90% of my meat was wild and ranged from whitebait to venison.

    Keen to know how it is valued? I took photos and recorded it all before dumping

    Happened to my neighbour a year or so back. From memory the insurance agent called past a butchery and aligned the venison payment with what it would cost in store. He came out pretty well.. makes you realise just how valuable a deer can be, if you were having to buy all the meat instead.

    Happen to us. We added up the cost of the meat verse the excess we'd have to pay on the claim, wasn't worth it so took the loss on the chin. Dog was well fed for a while

    lost power for 3 weeks after the quakes, managed to get the rotting mess to the tip, insurance company was good about it but take photo evidence.
    worst bit was i lost 2 gallons of spirits that i had brewed, brushed up the glass etc as well as possible and put it in the bin. the look on the sally army's face when i opened the door and a wall of airborne bourbon and gin hit them :priceless

    Same happened to me a couple of years back. Maximum our AA policy pays out for food spoilage is $1000. If you can quantify the loss (via you photos, weights), then you should be able to bet back what it's actually worth, unless there is a policy maximum.
