Finally, make sure your mobile home insurance policy not only insures your mobile home, but also insures the surrounding property and out buildings. Have adequate coverage to give you enough money to replace your home in the event that something happens to it. Find a good policy that will cover things like fire, storm damage, smoke damage, explosion and damage from vandalism. Nothing is more frustrating or disheartening than to have a disaster, whether natural or man made, wipe out your home, only to discover that it was not covered. A manufactured home is your home. You need to have it covered just like any other home. Compare insurance companies and read all of the fine print. Get everything in writing. Then get the best deal you can on your mobile home insurance policy.
Secondly, a good insurance policy will include liability insurance. Liability coverage protects you, the homeowner, if someone gets hurt on your property or in your home. It can pay for medical expenses and costs associated with the injury. A good policy will also help pay for legal defense in the event that you are sued. It should also cover damages made to the property when the accident occurred. However, it does not cover injuries to you or your immediate family living in the home. To determine the amount of liability coverage that you might need, think about how many people will be in and out of your home on a daily basis. If you have teenagers that are always inviting friends over, liability insurance is a must! It is important to try to make your home and property as safe as possible. Keep the porch and walkways in good repair. Always have adequate lighting and keep your home free of excessive clutter.
You can save more on your premiums (by as high as 25 percent) if you are able to raise the usual $500 deductibles that are being recommended by most insurance companies. Getting lost already? Getting confused with what deductibles mean? In the terms of an insurance policy, it is defined as the cost by which you shell out towards a loss before your claim is reimbursed by your insurance company. Just in case you are not aware, you should know that there is a separate deductible for different types of damage that your house may incur. This is true especially for those that live in disaster-prone localities. Whether you live in an area that is often visited by windstorm, vulnerable to hail storm, or situated along a fault line then you must have separate deductibles for the specific possible-damage.
There are several types of home structures and naturally there are different policies for varying residence types. For manufactured homes, the policy usually covers the entire structure. However, some manufactured home insurance policies will or may require an additional or optional policy for structures such as garages and sheds. It is also important to consider what type of unfortunate events that could occur. These events could result in serious damage to your home and belongings. The most common events include fire, lightning, frozen plumbing, vandalism, weight of ice and snow, smoke, explosion and hail. Normally insurance companies exclude "acts of god" like earthquakes, floods and other conditions such as fungus, bacteria, or dry rot. This would mean you need to purchase an additional policy in order to be protected against these events.
