Allianz issues adverse weather advice

Press Releases   •   Mar 29, 2018 17:36 BST

Following the Met Office’s announcement that a yellow weather warning for snow has been issued for most parts of the UK this weekend, Allianz has issued some advice for households and motorists during severe winter weather conditions.

Tips for motorists:

  • Be prepared for hazardous conditions by ensuring your vehicle is equipped with all the necessary essentials.
  • Gentle maneuvers are key, particularly when braking. Always try to pull away in second gear, and select a higher gear such as third or fourth for travelling downhill.
  • In the event of skidding; depress the clutch, steer into the skid and avoid the temptation to brake forcefully
  • Inform someone of where you are going and when you are likely to return. Keep up-to-date with weather and traffic reports and always put your own safety first.

Top tips for householders include:

  • Leave your central heating on low at around 15°C to prevent water from freezing
  • During periods of severe winter weather, keep a close eye out for frozen pipes. Telltale signs include no water coming from the faucet, frost or ice on the outside of the pipe and bulging of the pipe.
  • In the unfortunate event of a burst pipe, householders should turn off the stopcock and drain the system by opening taps in baths and sinks. Professional advice should be sought in accordance with broker and insurer guidelines.

Allianz’s claims operational manager, Jeremy Trott said:

“We are urging people to take sensible precautions to minimise the impact on themselves and on their property. Even simple measures can really make a difference”.
