This coverage has two parts. The first is the liability section of the policy. It covers your financial responsibility for injuring others and some coverage is required by most states.
The second part covers the car itself: comprehensive coverage reimburses losses from fire, theft or other perils; collision coverage pays to repair losses caused by an accident. Often this coverage is mandated by leasing companies or banks. There are also ancillary medical, car rental and other coverages which vary by state.
Utilizing high deductibles on the physical damage coverages can help reduce premiums. If you carry umbrella insurance, you must be sure that you carry the required amount of basic liability insurance to avoid a gap in coverage for a serious accident
Boat or Marine insurance is available for small boats, yachts, high performance powerboats, live-aboard houseboats, catamarans, or pontoons. Marine insurance will cover intended use including personal recreation, commercial, or charter vessels.
Boat policies can cover damage to your boat, motor, trailer, and personal effects in the boat. Available coverage includes liability, medical payments, injury to a water skier and damage to the boat itself, sometime called hull coverage. Availability varies by state and by insurance company. Even though boat insurance premiums are low, shopping your rate can sometimes save a substantial amount.
Condo insurance provides coverage for your unit where your condominium associations insurance stops. Your association typically insures the building and other common areas. You are responsible for the interior of your unit. Typically you need personal property and liability coverage. In addition to coverage for your floors, walls, cabinets and fixtures that your associations insurance probably will not cover.
Every association's insurance policy is different regarding what each unit owner is responsible for, so it is important to review your association policy and condo by-laws carefully.
Did you know that your homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage? Insurance against flood must be separately obtained. A flood insurance policy also reimburses you for the work that you and other family members did to sandbag your homes, move furniture and remove debris.
FEMA's maps are important when it comes to flood insurance because if they show that your home sits in a 100-year flood plain, you must buy federal flood insurance in order to get a mortgage. If you live outside a high-risk zone, or if you no longer have a mortgage, flood insurance is optional.
If you have tangible assets, you need the protection of a homeowner’s policy. These policies cover you in a home or an apartment, whether you are an owner or a renter. A well-written homeowner's policy will pay to replace any of your personal property that is destroyed in a fire or other disaster. The policy will also be your first line of defense against a lawsuit from someone injured at your home.
The cost of this coverage is determined by many rating factors. The quality of the coverage, however, is determined by the quality of the insurer and whether the policy is written on a named perils or all-risk basis. A named-perils policy covers only those losses specifically cited in the contract. The all-risk policy works the opposite way -- unless a peril is specifically excluded, coverage is provided. The all-risk policy is broader and the burden of proof is on the carrier not you in the event of a loss.
Whether you’re an enthusiast or a first-timer, having fun, being responsible and being safe is what it’s all about. Being responsible includes finding the right insurance.
Motorcycle insurance is a way of sharing the risks of driving between you and your insurance company. The way it works is simple. You pay a set premium to an insurance company for coverage. In return, the company promises to pay for specific financial losses that might occur during the term of the policy.
Most people rely on motorcycle insurance to protect themselves against loss in case of an accident. In many states, you must carry basic insurance to cover the cost of losses you cause to others in an accident. If the unexpected happens, insurance gives you peace of mind in knowing you are protected. We have a variety of motorcycle policy options to meet your needs.
As much as you expend efforts to purchase your dream motor home, it is important to select appropriate motor home insurance policy. Legally speaking, you are required to have a certain minimum amount of coverage when you have your motor home registered. However, there are many insurance policies to ensure that your motor home obtains maximum coverage and protection. It is important to choose a policy that incorporates the recreational value of your motor home and does not treat it as another automobile.
Umbrella policies offer inexpensive "peace of mind" for most types of negligence claims. Automobile accidents are probably the most common source of serious claims. This policy supplements your basic automobile liability with extra million-dollar layers of protection. It also covers other types of catastrophic claims such as a neighbor's child drowning in your pool or the delivery man being seriously injured by falling over your child's toys.
As a renter, you need to protect your personal property against theft and damage. Our renters insurance is hard to beat for convenience and value. Plus, we'll assure you the peace of mind you need for your valuable items and electronics.
Renters insurance can help protect you in case of a liability lawsuit against you. This could occur in a situation where you are held responsible for:
- Injury to another person
- Damage to another person's property
Whether the incident occurred within your rented residence, or elsewhere.
Your possessions may be more valuable than you realize. Most homeowners policies offer limited coverage for personal articles such as jewelry, cameras, golf equipment, fine art and collectibles, and computer equipment. We can provide the additional protection you need.
A variety of things may be covered by valuable items coverage. Common valuable items are:
- Baseball cards
- Computers equipment
- Golf equipment
- Musical Instruments
