A mobile home policy can help you protect your house together with your personal belongings from damages caused by items such as strong winds or burglary to mention a few, but there can be many causes. If you own or have a modular house it is very wise to get quotes for a Mobile home Insurance policy. The real and major reason as to why you need Mobile home insurance is that after you have bought your home together with some personal property, unfortunate events can occur. Events such as floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and other tragedies may occur and if your are broke at that time then you cannot afford to replace. This can be very daunting and hard, but this is where mobile home insurance comes in for you.
Ever think you would have trouble getting home owner insurance because you own a mobile home? Well, think again! Getting a mobile home insurance quote is much like getting an insurance quote for any other home. When you begin your search for mobile home insurance, take these three factors into consideration: liability protection, your possessions, and the mobile home itself, including any structures that are adjacent to the home. Liability insurance is insurance that will cover the costs of property damage or loss as well as the costs to any physical harm that may be done to a person on your property. Take into consideration any potentially dangerous areas of your home as well as how many people usually frequent your home in order to decide how much liability insurance you will need. You should also consider repairing any dangerous areas in or around your mobile home before you set out to get your mobile home insurance quote - repairs may help lower the cost of your mobile home insurance quote.
ACV (Actual Cash Value) or Replacement Cost? These are the two options that you will have to choose between. Surprisingly, most people end up with an ACV policy. This is bad news for the policy holder. ACV policies take into account depreciation of the home when it comes time to pay out for a claim. If your home is 15 years old, they depreciate the estimate to repair your home by 15 years and give you the balance less your deductible. I have personally seen countless policy holders receive as little as 30% of the cost of the estimate. The insurance company will then expect the policy holder to pay the difference. This is pretty common since ACV policies are rather inexpensive to buy and people are often misled into a false sense of protection.
Mobile home insurance protects your mobile home and other structures you own that are not attached to it. It pays to replace or repair your mobile home after it's been damaged by fire, storms, vandalism, lightning, explosions, plumbing leaks, or other incidents named in your policy. There are two types of coverage - replacement cost coverage and actual cash value coverage. Replacement cost coverage pays to replace your mobile home after it's destroyed. Actual cash value coverage also pays to replace your home after it's destroyed, but only for it's depreciated value. Standard policies do not cover your mobile home while it's being transported, but you can purchase trip collision coverage if you expect to move it.
