So last week one of our neighbours got robbed, all their jewellery, laptops, money etc left in the house was wiped out..
next day i decided i need to insure my belonging incase i get robbed, so i took out a policy with endsleigh student insurance with a £1000 cover for laptops and electronics for £80 per year..
what happens the next day, i knock over a glass of wine over my lovely macbook it wont switch on now and i took it to a repair guy and he said its dead!!
im tempted to call endsleigh and put a claim in but im affraid itll seem dodgy cos iv only taken the claim out a couple of days ago :s
and its genuinely a conicidence, before anyone starts accusing me!!!!!!!!
also, should i take my hard drive out of my laptop b4 sending it to endsleigh for inspection? cos i need my data on there!
cheers people xx
How long b4 i can put in a claim with Endsleigh? Watch

i'd leave it a week. and leave your hardrive in unless they instruct you to take it out. if you really need the stuff off there just buy a caddy and copy all the important stuff onto someone elses laptop

how long did you leave it before you turned it on?
if the answer is not long, you have probably done even more damage.
and yes, take the hard drive out if you send it away

You sure its dead?
I split orange squash over my aspire one, and me being silly, I tried to turn it on too. It didn't work.
So I took it apart, left the bits to try for 48 hours, put it back together, and it worked.

my bike got nicked a few weeks into my insurance - i did leave it a while (the police were mad cos i left it ages to report :/) but then it was only £100
Because you dont have to have police reports or anything, then i would leave it a tiny bit.
If they say you are lying, just show them the laptop, you cant profit from a broken one, not much point in breaking it on purpose, hardly that suspicious... though i suppose you could have done it then got insurance to pay for it...

the same thing happened to me! but mine was roughly about a week in the insurance policy. I just submitted a report of the incident. It was purely accidental and at first I was worried that it might seem dodgy.. but I decided to submit it anyway because that was exactly what happened. its best to be honest and it'll pay off.
