What this means to a U-fit customer
Once you place your deposit with U-Fit, your money is covered by a FSA (Financial Services Authority) insurance backed policy. Within 5 days of placing your holding deposit you will be issued with an independent insurance certificate covering your deposit up to 25% of the contract value.

Our HomePro Policy backs the guarantee that U-Fit supplies to the customer after completing delivery. Our HomePro Plus policy also protects the deposit paid by you, the customer (for up to 25% of the conservatory price).

Elminate the Risk
Once you have taken delivery of your U-Fit window, simply return the tear-off section of your policy and your new window is fully insured by Homepro, an independent insurer, that matches the standard U-Fit 10yr guarantee.

What is an Insurance Backed Guarantee?
The HomePro Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) can provide U-Fit customers with peace of mind if the company should cease to trade. The policy will cover the costs for any remedial work, for material defects and faulty workmanship within the guarantee period.

We give this policy with all conservatories for peace of mind and protection to all our customers.
