Shopping for a New Mattress Tips

There are some things in life that you should treat yourself to from time to time, and one of these is when you are in the market for a new mattress. Sleeping on a low quality Tempur mattressor old mattress can have negative effects on your health. The most common repercussions of buying a cheap mattress is a bad back.

I recently decided to treat myself to a Tempur mattress, after trying out my sister’s new upholstered fabric beds she had bought for the spare room. She decided to invest in a quality mattress for the beds because she put on a lot of weight after her second child, and her husband, or even very small and skinny man, would complain that he was rolling into the centre of the bed during the night because her weight was causing a valley in the bed. It got so bad that he went to sleep in their room.

My sister read that a Tempur bed when be the perfect solution to her problem because Tempur conforms to the contours of the body, and as soon as you move the mattress will regain its original shape. Her husband has now returned to the marital bed, and things are looking rosy.

I am expecting my new mattress to be delivered this week, and I’m really looking forward to getting a better nights sleep.

Benefits of Dining Room Sets

dining room setsLast week my friend and I went looking for dining room sets. We both had quite different reasons for wanting to buy a new dining room set, but for us both, and reasons were fairly important.

My friend wanted to buy new dining room furniture because hers has seen better days, and as her children are now two and three years old, she wants to bring her family up in the old fashion way where the family eats round the dining table at the same time every day, rather than balancing their plates on their knees in front of the TV at odd times. Research shows that children brought up in organised homes where family eating is still the custom, do better at school, and are more well-balanced generally.

For my part I needed new dining room furniture because I am moving into a new house. Well, it is not new per se, but it is new to me, and after living in a poky room for the last three years I am really looking forward to having lots of space and being able to fill it with practical and attractive furniture items.

Although the reasons for purchasing were entirely different, we both ended up with glass dining  table sets. They look brilliant, will last for decades, and are easy to care for. Although my furniture is not yet arrived, I am delighted with it already!

Duties Of A Loss Assessor

flood2I would like to share an experience I had in 2011 after my home was damaged in the winter storms after flooding. Damage was quite extensive – and things were made worse because we had recently finished a rather expensive renovation to our sitting room, we estimated the damage to be at around 11,000 GBP. Needless to say we were appalled when the company who has sold us our home insurance for the last 14 years only offered us 1,700 GBP when we put in a claim. We had no other choice but to call in a UK based loss assessor.

A loss assessor is a person that is hired by an underwriter that investigates all claims that are made by many policy holders. The policies in which the assessor investigates, must adhere to the terms and the conditions of the said policy. Both commercial and home loss assessors investigate why the damage was caused, and how a person came to lose items that were filed in the original insurance claim. Assessors often have to talk to distraught family members whom have lost a loved one, or they have to inspect many different types of vehicles and buildings.

Many times, agreements can be reached faster than expected in insurance claim filing when the evidence is clear and plentiful. More complicated claims may take a longer time to settle, as there may be a huge amount of investigating to be completed. Loss assessors must be aware at all times that some claims filed may not be true claims, and that many people are wanting money paid to them in a very dishonest way. To become a loss assessor, candidates must pass an exam provided by the Chartered Insurance Institute, and most candidates will need to have people skills in knowing how to effectively communicate with all types of people.

I am please to say, our story had a happy ending, and we ended up receiving almost 10K from our insurance company. Even considering we had to pay around 10 percent of that to the loss assessor, it was a darn sight more than we would have gotten without his help. So if you are unhappy with a settlement when you make a home insurance claim, be sure to call in a loss assessor – it is worth it!
