Why You Need Vehicle Insurance

Why do you need car insurance?

Accidents Happen! Car accidents happen every minute of the day. Protect yourself and your family.

Having car insurance is a legal requirement and will also provide for injuries to other drivers, passengers or pedestrians. Most states require its drivers to carry a minimum amount of car insurance in the form of liability coverage.

Car insurance is based on a number of factors, including your age, where you live, the type of car you drive, your occupation, where your car is kept, what you use it for.

Why You Need Homeowners Insurance

Home insurance saves the day when bad luck strikes. A tornado tears off the roof. A fire destroys the kitchen. Any number of catastrophes can hit home and turn life upside-down.

Home insurance helps you pick up the pieces, and guarantees your biggest investments are safe. Home insurance covers the house structure as well as your personal belongings.

Another reason homeowners need insurance is that mortgage companies require it! If you take out a mortgage, your house is the lender’s collateral, and you will be required to buy insurance.

Don’t just shop for a policy. Protect your assets! Make sure you also select the best agent for your home insurance needs. Call one of our agents today!

Why Renters Need Insurance

When you rent instead of buy, it’s still essential to protect your assets. That’s why as a renter, you should consider Renters Insurance. It helps you protect yourself and your personal property.  When you rent, some people think that the Landlord’s insurance covers you and your personal property too, but your landlord’s insurance is only there to cover them and their property and not yours.
