Whether it’s a house or a condo, and whether you own it or rent it, your home is important. That’s why a comprehensive home insurance policy is equally important. We’ll work with you to customize your home insurance coverage, ensuring your policy covers the things that matter to you most.
Unexpected damage to your home is often out of your control and could happen at any time. Whether water floods the building or your home is damaged during a storm, dealing with these kinds of situations can be emotionally and financially devastating. Home insurance is your safety net, an important tool to help protect the valuable assets and property you’ve worked so hard to acquire.
What do we offer?
Your home and your needs are unique, which is why we offer three levels of home coverage.
We’ll work with you to customize our standard home insurance coverage so that it fits your needs. It includes benefits such as:
Guaranteed replacement cost: If your home is destroyed, we will cover the costs associated with rebuilding it, using materials of a similar quality, even if your policy coverage is less.
Student away: If there’s a student in your family who’s away at school, your insurance will extend to them and their belongings.
Special limits: We offer some of the highest “special limits” insurance options for items such as jewelry, collectibles, or bicycles.
Jewelry coverage: For an additional cost, you can choose to cover your individual jewelry items based on appraised value, not just replacement value.
*Subject to the limits, exclusions & conditions in the policy.
We also offer several discounts to help you save on your home insurance, which consider a number of factors, including your age, the age of your home, whether you’ve had claims in the past three years, whether you have an alarm system, and whether you’re mortgage-free.
For customers looking for a policy a step above our standard coverage, we offer Platinum Insurance. Each home that’s covered will automatically be appraised/inspected. The coverage also guarantees that in the event of a total loss, a claims settlement on the home will be based on Guaranteed replacement cost with a cash option built right in!
A Platinum policy also includes the following benefits:
Higher special limits: We offer some of the highest special limits available, including jewelry up to $10,000 per claim, cash up to $2,500, and no limit on silverware.
Increased liability limit: Our standard limit of $1,000,000 is bumped up to $2,000,000, at no additional cost to you.
Identity theft recovery expense coverage: We provide up to $15,000 to reimburse you for expenses you incur in recovering your identity.
By-laws protection: This covers increased costs due to the operation of any law regulating zoning, demolition, repair, or construction of buildings or their related services.
