Im due to complete and move into a new build property next week, has anyone any experience with getting home and contents insurance, is there a particular insurer you went with ?
Ive done a dummy quote and 5 quotes (used gocompare) came back and the cheapest was with a broker, is this standard for new build properties ?

Thanks

    What quote has your existing insurer come back with?

    First time owner of a property so no existing insurer.
    The cheapest dummy quotes I had was £189.85 with One Call Insurance. I did use gocompare and not tried any of the other comparison sites.
    Thanks

    You just need to pick a good insurer from the ones which have quoted you. It makes no difference if the property it's older or a new build, only listed properties, non-standard, thatched roof etc will reduce the pool of insurers.
