You need a vacant home insurance policy. The best place to start is to ask the agent that wrote your homeowners insurance policy to write a vacant homeowners insurance policy. If that agent cannot help, you will have to contact an independent insurance agent that offers these types of insurance policies. Over the past few years insurance carriers have developed policies specially designed for a vacant home. Most of the companies that will underwrite a vacant home are not household names, but little known specialty insurance companies. These companies offer insurance products that are not written by your main stream property and casualty insurance companies. These type policies are offered through independent agents. Okay so how do you proceed?
One way that you can decrease the cost of your vacant house insurance is to increase your deductible. The higher the deductible you have to pay out when you make an insurance claim, the lower your insurance premium will be. This is because a higher deductible decreases the risk that insurance companies bear when they give out vacant home insurance quotes. You should choose a deductible amount that you are comfortable paying back. Another step you can do to reduce your vacant house insurance premium is to secure your home. If your property is secured with an alarm detection system, insurance companies will often give you a lower premium. Having a secured property decreases the risk for insurance companies, which is reflected in the insurance price.
As with other insurances, there are ways to help keep the cost of vacant property insurance lower. One of the best ways is to make sure the property is as secure as possible. Some insurance companies refuse to provide vacant property insurance unless the home is equipped with an alarm system. This is the best way to get a reduction in your rates (and in some cases to even getting the insurance in the first place). If you have been with this company for some times, be sure to ask about any available loyal customer discounts. The fact that you have been a faithful, paying customer over time is often recognized by insurance companies by offering discounts. There may be no place a discount is more needed than in getting vacant property coverage. Raising the deductible is also a possible means of saving on the monthly premium. Just remember, a higher deductible means higher out of pocket expense if a claim has to be made.
Another thing that you should do when you are going to apply for cheap vacant home insurance is to see if your insurance company offers a customer loyalty bonus. Some insurance companies will give discounts to customers who have been loyal customers for a period of time. Always check and see if you can get any additional discounts from the insurance companies. Increasing your deductible will also decrease your monthly premiums. By increasing the amount you pay every time you make a claim, it means the insurance companies pay less. This allows them to reduce the monthly premiums that they charge you for your vacant house insurance. Be sure to do a comprehensive search online for different insurance companies. Some companies will offer discounts while others may have stricter lending criteria. Be sure to find the insurance company that offers the best price for the best coverage.
