Insurance doesn’t have to be confusing. We’re here to help make life more enjoyable knowing that we have your trust, insured.
How do I file a claim?
Are natural disasters such as flood, earthquakes and hurricanes covered under my homeowner policy?
Do I need to buy insurance from the rental car company if I have my own personal automobile insurance?
Does my homeowner policy cover my possessions when they are not in my house?
A standard homeowner policy provides coverage equal to 10% of the limit for Coverage C of a homeowner policy or $1,000, whichever is greater. This coverage is useful for protecting you while traveling and for other temporary situations. If you have property in excess of these amounts away from home or property that is kept away from your residence premises for extended periods, you should consider additional protection.
The 10% limitation for household property, is for property at an Insureds Residence Premise……There is no limitation for property carried on vacation or stored in a storage unit. (except whatever the contents limit is on the property)
How does my automobile policy protect me when I'm driving in other states that may require different limits or types of coverage? What about when I'm driving in another country?
I'm not near any body of water. Is there any particular reason why I would need flood insurance? Doesn't my homeowner policy provide flood coverage?
Is my boat insured if I have an auto or homeowner policy?
What are the benefits of a renters policy?
What happens after I file a claim?
The claim process has a few variations but these are the essential steps once the claim has been submitted to the insurance company:
You will be contacted by an insurance company adjuster to gather detailed information about your claim.
Often, someone from the insurance company will inspect your auto or property for damage or will ask you to provide evidence of value and ownership for loss to property that is not a vehicle or real property.
An estimate is prepared.
A check is delivered.
Sometimes differences in actual and estimated damages arise, especially after repair work has been undertaken. Every attempt is made to resolve these differences and sometimes a supplemental check is prepared.
It is the responsibility of the insurance company to settle and pay your claim and the responsibility of our agency to make sure that is done as quickly and fairly as possible with a minimum of uncertainty and bother for you. We monitor claim progress closely and communicate with you throughout to make sure you are satisfied.
