While documents are with National Will Safe they are fully insured against loss or damage. If anything happens to the documents, they will be recreated and replaced, free of charge.

If any document stored by National Will Safe is lost or damaged at the time it is needed, or its loss or damage only comes to light at the time it is needed, then the business is insured for up to £2million per case to compensate anyone who loses out or incurs costs as a result of there being no legally binding document in existence.
