What are Refurbished handsets?
Our Refurbished handsets are phones that have been returned to us because their owner has sadly fallen out love with them. But don't panic, faulty or broken phones don't go back into our Refurbished handset pot! We screen every single one to ensure it's up to scratch and there are no visible marks at arms length. We also QA test them so we know for certain that they're working with the latest software. Just in case their last owner forgot to get rid of their pictures we also run them through data removal software. These phones are then re-boxed and come with a USB lead (no headphones or charger!). Refurbished handsets are a great option if you're looking for a high end handset without the price tag.

If I make a claim, when will I receive my replacement device?
We know how important your device is to you and Pier Insurance will endeavour to have your replacement device to you as quickly as possible.
Will my replacement mobile phone or tablet be a new one?

Your policy is not a ‘replacement as new’ policy so all mobile phone or tablet replacements could be brand new or refreshed ones. Don't worry, the quality of refreshed devices is so high you won't be able to tell if it’s new or not. They really are that good and they also come with a warranty. One thing to know: refreshed devices may include some non-original parts although standards are extremely high.

Will my replacement mobile phone or tablet be the same model as the one I had?
Pier will try their hardest to get you the same make and model, even the colour too if we can, and get it to you as quickly as possible once the claim has been agreed. In cases where your old device is no longer manufactured they will provide the nearest comparable model.

Do you cover cosmetic damage?

Your phone is only covered for damage if it stops your device from functioning normally. Cracked screens are covered, but scratches and dents do not qualify for repair or replacement especially normal day-to-day wear and tear of your mobile phone.

What is my phone’s IMEI number and where can I find it?
Your phone will have an IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity) number. It can be found by dialling *#06# on most phones. You may also find it printed inside the battery compartment of your phone.
