None of the online brokers will give me a quote as I've had two claims in the past three years, and the one company I phoned wouldn't provide a quote as both were for flood related incidents (internal flooding, not related to any of the big floods of last year - I'm 95m above sea level and 60m above the nearest river!). Should I state that my property wasn't flooded, since one event was a burst pipe and the other a drainage problem that flooded a cellar?
Does anyone have any recommendations for where else I can go for a quote? My existing insurer (Tesco) has quoted £860 which I can't afford, a big increase on last year despite no claims being made in that period. Will anywhere let you forego flood cover to save money?

I continue to be amazed at the low level of contents cover offered as standard by insurance companies (aka assumptions!). I have inventoried my family home and te contents value is way more than the 30-60k you get offered. When I try and put a higher contents level, many companies refuse to cover.....the apparant exception? M&S who have unlimited contents and buildings as standard. I have not switched, cos it is not time....anyone know of any other such companies? Anyhow - my top tip is take a bit of time to do a basic inventory/valuation of your contents...you will be VERY surprised!!!!
