Got a Smashed or Faulty Device? Your Insurance Might Cover the Repair Costs!

At TekStore, we understand that accidents happen. Whether you’ve dropped your iPhone, iPad or Mac - cracked the screen, or your battery is no longer holding a charge, these issues can be frustrating and costly. However, you might not need to worry about the repair costs as much as you think. Did you know that various insurance policies could cover the cost of repairs, leaving you with little to no out-of-pocket expenses? Here’s how your insurance can help you get your device back in top shape.


If you’ve got AppleCare+, you’re in luck (we can check this for you). AppleCare+ provides comprehensive coverage for your Apple device, including accidental damage protection. This means if you’ve accidentally damaged your device, you can get it repaired or replaced for free or a small excess fee. At TekStore we're authorised by Apple and can check your AppleCare+ coverage and handle the repair process for you in store, ensuring you get the best service and genuine Apple parts.

Home Insurance

Many people don’t realise that their home insurance policy might cover damage to personal electronics. Check with your home insurance provider to see if your policy includes coverage for accidental damage to your gadgets. If it does, you can claim the repair costs, paying only a small excess. This is a great way to save money on unexpected repairs.

Credit Card Insurance

Did you purchase your Apple device with a credit card? Some credit cards, such as Barclaycard, offer purchase protection or travel insurance that covers damage to items bought with the card. This type of insurance often includes coverage for accidental damage to your gadgets. It’s worth checking the terms and conditions of your credit card benefits to see if you’re eligible for a repair claim.

Gadget Insurance

Specialised gadget insurance policies are designed to cover your devices against accidental damage, theft, and loss. If you have a gadget insurance policy, it likely covers a wide range of incidents that could affect your Apple device. Making a claim on your gadget insurance can significantly reduce your repair costs, and at TekStore, we can assist with providing the necessary repair quotes and documentation for your claim.

Bank Insurance

Some bank accounts come with added perks, including gadget insurance. For example, certain premium bank accounts include coverage for your electronics as part of their package. If you have this type of account, check with your bank to understand the coverage details and how to make a claim.

Travel Insurance

Many travel insurance policies include coverage for electronic devices. If your device was damaged while travelling, check your travel insurance policy for coverage details. This can help you save on repair costs and ensure your device is back in working order quickly.

Mobile Phone Company Plans

Providers like Vodafone offer lifetime battery warranties, and EE provides extended cover plans for mobile devices. These plans can cover repairs and replacements, reducing your out-of-pocket expenses. Check with your mobile phone provider to see if your device is covered under such a plan.

Business Insurance

If you use your Apple device for work, your business insurance policy might cover accidental damage. Many business insurance plans include coverage for company-owned electronics. Check with your business insurance provider to see if your device is covered and how to make a claim.
