Reasons To Opt For Renter's Insurance

by Administrator 30. October 2018 14:20

It is important to note that property owners are not bound to insure their renter’s personal property and liabilities. A smart renter knows the importance of obtaining renter’s insurance for adding a layer of protection to their belongings.

People seem to be more aware about homeowners insurance as compared to renter’s insurance and that’s probably why they fail to give it due importance. Here are some reasons for which every renter should consider getting renter’s insurance:

  • Affordable: Renter’s insurance is one of the most pocket friendly insurances out there. It’s sure to cost less than the value of your belongings.
  • Covers Losses To Your Personal Property: Personal property comprises of jewelry, furniture, electronics, luggage, etc. In case of a theft or damage due to natural perils, a riot, explosions, windstorm, hail, water, etc., replacing all your belongings can be an expensive affair. It is in such cases that renter’s insurance proves to be of immense value. However, note that losses that arise from floods and earthquakes are not covered by standard renter’s insurance policies.
  • Includes Liability Coverage: Liability coverage is an intrinsic part of standard renter’s insurance policy. It covers the costs incurred due to accidental injuries to people in the house, court fees, legal expenses and so on.
  • Some Property Owners Demand It: Most property owners these days have made it mandatory for tenants to purchase the renter’s insurance policies and even require proof of the same.
  • Covers Your Personal Belongings Even When You Are Away: If you are out and about travelling often, this policy is a must-have as it covers personal belongings in your car, home or with you while travelling. You are protected from all the losses covered under the policy even as you travel.
  • Covers Additional Living Expenses: On a peril befalling you and your house, the renter’s insurance will cover any expenses that you incur while living away on a temporary basis as you look for a new accommodation. In addition to the living expenses, even food expenses and other additional expenses on living are covered.
  • Covers Guest’s Injuries: In addition to your interests, renter’s insurance also protects the interests of your guests. They may get injuries of any kind while staying at your place. So, renters’ insurance will cover you, thus protecting you from liabilities arising from such incidents.

How To Make The Most Of Your Auto Insurance Policy

by Administrator 27. September 2018 07:23

If you are looking for ways to get maximum coverage from your auto insurance policy but without spending a huge amount of money, you will have to educate yourself on how to do so. Following are some great tips to make the most of your auto insurance policy:

 

  • Research: The first step in getting the most out of an auto insurance policy is to do some research and compare the rates of different insurance companies. The more research you do, better are your chances of getting an affordable auto insurance policy.
  • Opt For A Higher Deductible: You can save on hundreds of dollars by opting for a higher deductible. Choose an amount that is comfortable for you to pay. You can either choose a lump-sum deductible or opt for paying an extra amount along with your premium.
  • A Clean-Driving Record: Lower insurance rates are offered to good drivers based on their driving record. Those with a record of traffic violations and accidents end up with high premium insurance policies.
  • Bundle Insurance Packages: Opt for auto insurance policies that offer discounts on multiple insurance packages. By combining two different insurance policies you can enjoy reduced premiums.
  • Use Anti-Theft Devices: Installing anti-theft devices gets you into the good books of insurance companies. You become eligible for enjoying lower rates. Examples of such devices are car alarms, steering wheel bars, GPS tracking devices and ignition shut-off devices.
  • The Type Of Car You Drive: The choice of your car plays a big role in determining how much premium you will pay. Vehicles with high sticker prices, high theft rankings, low safety ratings and new vehicles cost more in terms of insurance premiums.
  • Claim Discounts: If you group all your policies in a single insurance company, you stand a good chance of getting multi-line discounts and slashed premium rates. Ask your insurance companies about the different types of discounts they offer and see whether you can avail any. Take advantage of your senior status to be eligible for discounts that are meant for retirees. If you are a teacher or belong to a professional group ask your employer and insurance company whether you are eligible for group insurance discounts.
  • Add Accessories: Investing in accessories like anti-lock brakes and air bags is another way of reducing your auto insurance costs.

Insurance FAQs For First Time Home Buyers

by Administrator 17. August 2018 05:41

First time home insurance buyers have so many questions pertaining to the best policy for their needs. Being armed with the right information is the first step towards making the right decision in this regard. Following are some frequently asked questions about insurance that can be helpful for those buying a house for the first time:

  • What Is Homeowners Insurance? Homeowners insurance is a policy which protects a homeowner from losses to their house and the possessions in it from unexpected damage or any other type of loss.
  • When To Buy A Policy? You can buy an insurance policy for your home even after purchasing the house. In case you have taken a loan on your house, the mortgage company may require your home to be insured before granting the loan.
  • What Will The Insurance Policy Cover? Home insurance policies generally cover losses that result from damage to the property, property loss, living expenses and personal liabilities. The damage can be partial or total. Losses caused by natural disasters like fires, windstorms, lightning, hail or man-made factors like burglary, theft, riots, vandalism, etc. are covered. Medical payments coverage is required for medical treatment of the owner or anyone else visiting the property at the time of a calamity/accident. Living expenses refer to the costs of an alternate accommodation due to a disaster. You can add a rider policy to your home insurance for added coverage on items of high value.
  • Which Factors Will Determine The Amount To Be Paid? To determine the amount to be paid, home insurance providers consider factors like credit score, claims history of the individual and the area of residence, location, age of home, rebuilding costs, pets, distance from a fire department or hydrant and the selected coverages.
  • Can I Save Some Money On Insurance? Yes. Ask your insurance provider whether there are any discounts being offered. Some insurance providers offer discounts to those who own homes with additional features like a security system. Another hack for cutting down the insurance costs is to raise your deductible in order to lower the premium amount.
  • How To Choose The Right Insurance Provider? Insurance carriers vary in terms of coverage and cost so take out some time to search around in person and on the internet to find the right provider. Compare quotes from different insurance companies and preferably get the assistance of an expert.
