As 2019 draws to a close, Allianz Insurance has revealed some of the most unusual claims it has received so far this year.

Some of the strangest claims include:

  • A fallen Unicorn: A claim was made to repair a damaged fallen Unicorn which can usually be found on a famous London landmark
  • Dog waste fire: As a result of somebody putting a lit sparkler in a dog waste bin, it caused a nearby furniture store to be completely burnt down
  • Cement mishap: Over 69 vehicles became encased in concrete following a mishap from a neighbouring concrete mixer
  • Written-off sports cars: A valet driver was left red faced after cleaning a brand new £150,000 sports car, only to accelerate the vehicle into the rear of another £130,000 sports car.

Lee Watts, Head of Technical Claims, Allianz Insurance commented:

“These cases are just a handful of examples that highlight the breadth of incidents and unfortunate claims our customers are faced with. Insurance provides people and businesses with the security of being protected, no matter how unusual the circumstances may be.

“Throughout the year we’ve looked at improving and streamlining our claims processes to ensure it’s as easy as possible for customers to make claims in their time of need.This is something that we will continue to do in 2020.”
