An insurance company is very particular with the risk factors. When an issuer provides you with a quote, it is already considering the odds of getting a claim. Normally, stolen contents in your home are covered but one should keep in mind that failure to secure or lock the doors will nullify the claim as it is not covered due to negligence. Not surprisingly, manufactured homes are generally not as secure as permanent houses maybe due to the tendency that these homes are often found on areas with high density of population and anonymity. Add to the fact that mobile or park homes are not really as sturdy and burglars can break in with relative ease. Most manufactured homes are not equipped with security system as well. In other words, mobile homes are situated in locations where there is a high propensity of theft and the structure itself is more inviting for burglars. This is one of the main reasons why insurance of mobile home owners are more expensive.
