Preparing for A New Year
As we start preparing for a new year, it is important to review our insurance exposures. Your insurance agent needs to know if you have made changes around your home to ensure your home insurance policy is up to date.
1. Have you installed a swimming pool?
2. Bought a trampoline?
3. Added a pet to the family?
4. Installed a monitored alarm?
5. Put a new roof on your home?
All of these are important to ensure you are receiving the best rate possible as well as properly protected.
The first of the year is also a wonderful time to review your auto insurance policy. Here are some questions you should ask:
1. Do you have affordable deductibles on comprehensive and collision?
2. Do have roadside assistance?
3. Have you paid off a vehicle?
i. If yes, confirm the lienholder has been removed from the policy.
One of the most important recommendations I can make is considering flood insurance. Hurricane season starts June 1st. We have seen severe storms and flooding the past few years. Flood insurance offers peace of mind knowing your home is protected. So many people think they do not need flood insurance until it is too late. There is a 30-day waiting period to purchase flood so do not wait!
