Every claim is important to us, and so is your time, so if your claim is for less severe damage, use our online claim form to submit your motor or property claim. You’ll still get our great customer service, but you'll avoid phone queues, and you'll be allowing those who've been hardest hit to get urgent help.
What happens next?
Once you’ve completed your claim form, we’ll be in touch as soon as possible. Our claims team will let you know if you need to get any replacement quotes, and if so, they’ll help with the process.
For settling contents claims, we’ll choose to either replace or reinstate your contents or pay you a cash settlement.

Where we accept the claim for your mobile device, we may need you to provide a repair report from a mobile phone repairer so we can reimburse this cost. If your mobile device has been lost or stolen, we may need you to show us evidence of ownership in the form of either:
- A receipt
- Confirmation from your phone provider
- Other evidence agreed with us, as well as a police report number
We’ll then either pay you the cost to repair your mobile device, or where needed, arrange replacement through one of our supply partners. If you plan to take this opportunity to upgrade your mobile device, we can discuss this with you during your claim.
Allianz Home Insurance policies offer an optional cover that can be included for Motor Burnout or Fusion. If you’re unsure if your policy includes this optional cover, refer to your Policy Schedule and or call us on 13 10 13 to discuss.
If you need to make a claim, in most cases we’ll need a report from a qualified electrician or repairer confirming:

Strata and Community title properties can be very complex situations, and laws vary from state to state in regards to what is the responsibility of the Strata and what is your responsibility as a unit owner.
In most cases, if you’re claiming for a fixed item in your Strata unit, such as flooring, kitchens, air conditioning, wall or ceiling damage, bathrooms etc, we’d need you to provide written confirmation from your Strata Corporation confirming whether they cover this damage, and if not, explaining why. We’ll then be able to discuss how we can best help you.
To be covered for rent default, you will need to have taken the optional cover Rent Default and Theft by Tenant. For any claim for rent default or departure without notice, we’ll need you to have issued all the relevant notices required under your lease agreement, or through your state or territory tenancies act.
We’ll also need to see copies of the lease agreement you have with the tenant, along with rental ledgers to show the rental payment history. As coverage can be different on each policy depending on the options selected, we’re happy to discuss the cover available to you on 13 10 13.
Do what you reasonably can to prevent further loss, damage or liability. Contact the police as soon as reasonably possible to report any theft or attempted theft, or damage caused by intentional acts, riots or vehicle impact.
Contact the Allianz Claims Call Centre on 13 10 13 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the Landlord Insurance claims process.
If you’re making a Landlord Building and/or Contents claim, we’ll let you know if you need to get replacement quotes or not, as this depends on the type of claim you make. If you’re required to do so, our claims team will help with the process.
Before you pay for expenses or bear costs you wish to claim, contact us for approval to make sure you’re covered under this policy. Otherwise, we’ll only cover expenses up to the amount that we would’ve initially authorised if no contact had been made.
Retain receipts, instruction booklets or any other documents that can help provide evidence of your ownership in the event of a claim. Retain a copy of your written rental agreement and details of the bond held and any notices provided to tenants.
Claims staff may require this for loss of rent claims. Retain copies of any property inspection reports. Your claims consultant will advise you of what’s required to help us process your claim quickly.
