Personal Coverage Homeowners Insurance
Homeowners insurance is not something that you should take lightly. Your home protects so many valuable belongings – you’ll want to make sure that insurance is there if you do need it.
Do you have adequate coverage on your home and personal property?
Our professional insurance agents can take a look at your current policy and help identify any holes in the coverage. Some common issues we find are: rebuild costs are underestimated, co-insurance is inadequate, personal property is undervalued and personal effects are not inventoried and/or not covered.
Did you know that your jewelry, paintings, furs and other collectibles may not be covered adequately on your basic homeowner’s insurance policy?
They need to be “scheduled” on the insurance policy to receive the best coverage. We will review your current insurance policy and give you a household inventory to make sure you don’t underestimate you possessions. An inland marine personal articles floater is used to insure valuable personal property; as these kinds of items often require more insurance coverage than a basic homeowner’s policy will provide.
