Why use a local insurance agent for homeowners insurance? Homes are physically rooted to one spot. And the location they are in has unique characteristics. From city ordinances to county and state regulations, conditions vary. And then there are geographical factors that Mother Nature contributes to, sometimes in very large meaningful ways – think earthquakes, forest fires and hurricanes. A local insurance agent doesn’t have to be in in your backyard. They can be within a hundred or so miles and completely understand the nuances surrounding your home. A local insurance agent has knowledge that a non-local agent just does not have. Information like – what is the financial health of the largest home insurance carrier in your county; or are home insurance rates expected to rise in your area because of recent events. So, call us, your local insurance agent – we understand the New York, NY area very well and can give you quality (and money saving) insurance advice. What are the common exclusions on a homeowner’s insurance policy? In general, negligence is not covered by any type of insurance policy – but here are some common exclusions for the home owner to be aware of - Earthquake Insurance (including ground movements, sinkholes, etc)- in earthquake states you are explicitly asked to sign an earthquake insurance waiver. Alternatively you can get earthquake insurance (normally from a different insurer) Flood damage – the typical home insurance policy does not cover flood damage – you will need a separate flood insurance policy for that. Mold damage is normally covered only if you had a recent plumbing leak and you take action quickly. Infestations – insect and vermin infestation (pests) are not covered. Dangerous Dogs – you are asked about your pets when applying for a home insurance policy specifically because many carriers do not cover a situation where your dog bites a neighbor. In fact, you may not get coverage if you have a dangerous dog; or you may pay a higher premium. Dog bite insurance claims are well over a quarter of all home insurance claims, so insurers are increasingly careful about insuring dangerous pet owners.

Your insurance policy will outline your deductible (and/or waiver of deductible), and the contact information to file a claim. It also outlines what is covered and what is excluded from coverage. Take pictures of all the damage, losses, and document in great detail what you expect to claim. Armed with policy in hand you should call the insurance company and begin the claims process. You will be assigned a claims adjustor after the initial claim filing. You can file a claim on the phone or online in most cases. You will be contacted by the adjustor who will ask for more details and have some questions. The adjustor will them come out or send out a professional to assess the damage, if needed. They will file a report and guide you through the rest of the process – every insurance company is different in the order of handling reimbursements, paperwork filing and organizing repairs etc. But, if you are with a reputable home insurance company, you will have the right information at every step of the way. A local insurance agent, such as us can help walk you through the whole process and coordinate with the insurer and the claims adjustor to make the claims process much easier on the home owner and their family and loved ones – another reason to use a local insurance agency in the New York, NY area.
How do you pay for the policy? Three options depending on your circumstances – Paid Up front – usually for new businesses, or businesses that don’t have strong financials. Monthly Installment (financed) Quarterly or twice a year payments (not necessarily financed, but because you have a history with the carrier they give you this payment plan) What is business insurance? A business insurance policy of business insurance package (multiple coverages and riders) normally starts with general liability insurance (or 'CGL'). It protects your business from a financial loss if you find yourself liable for property damage, personal, or an injury that was caused by your business, services provided, business operations or your employees.

The Claims Process If an incident occurs that may lead to a claim, you should notify your insurance company or agent immediately. Be prepared to explain what has happened in detail including the time, date, the names of any witnesses, and any other pertinent information. Not all claims will be accepted by the insurance company, however. As a business owner, you are required to file a claim with your insurance carrier. If you have used an agent in the process, then they will help you file the claim. Most business insurance companies allow you to file a claim over the phone and also offer up an online option. Regardless, there is quite a bit of paperwork and details involved, regardless of what the claim may be. The business is then assigned a claim adjuster, who will review the claim and determine if the claim is covered. They may require more paperwork and it may be weeks before you know if the claim is denied or accepted. If denied, you can appeal and submit more information. If accepted, they will give you explicit instructions on how you will get compensated, whether they will be assigning their own attorneys (as needed), or how they will reimburse your company based on the circumstances.
