How to book EQC accommodation with us

Our goal is to make the process of booking your EQC accommodation as easy as possible – we’ll be here to support you every step of the way. Here’s how the process works:

  1. As soon as you have a general idea about when your repair or rebuild will start, please get in touch with us. You can call us (03 372 3408) or use the contact form on our website. We encourage you to get in touch as soon as you know your approximate dates, as this will give you the most options.
  2. We’ll then gather all the information we need to identify suitable properties for you. This includes the number of people in your household, pets, desired location, insurance information and budget for accommodation (if specified).
  3. Next, we’ll review our database of properties to find suitable ones that are available in your timeframe. We’ll send you an email with a list of the properties that match your requirements and a formal quote for each of the properties to provide to your insurance company.
  4. Once you’ve chosen the property you want and received approval from your insurance company, we’ll send you confirmation for your EQC accommodation. To confirm your reservation, we request that you pay a refundable security deposit of $500 - $750.
  5. Once you have approval from your insurance company, we are typically able to invoice the insurance company directly. If you are having any problems getting a response from the insurance company, we are happy to contact them on your behalf. We have strong relationships with the local insurance brokers as we have been working with them to provide EQC accommodation for the past several years. We may be able to help move things along if you’re experiencing delays.


It’s as easy as that! If you have any questions before, during or after the process, you’re always welcome to get in touch with us. We’re here to help.
