Even though most insurance companies offer the same basic coverage that the next company offers, but what is not the same is the price. You would think that because the insurance policy is the same that you would be paying roughly the same price from insurer to insurer. This is simply not the case, the prices can easily vary by hundreds of dollars. This is why its important to get a quote from an insurer before you decide that they are right for you. Sometimes you will find that a cheaper solution is just right around the corner. Insurance quotes are great, and they are even better when they are free. It gives you a chance to really see where you are money would be better spent. Even if you do not find the absolute best deal that you can get, its better to know that you are getting the best price for your area. Remember, information is the key to saving you big bucks when it comes to any insurance policy and your mobile home insurance is no exception.
Mobile home Insurance offers coverage to your mobile or say movable home and the building structures or other personal property you own that is within your premises. The items it offers cover to do not necessarily have to be in the house, but can be detached say the garage or cottage. All forms are included except those that are specifically excluded. The coverage offered covers many perils and includes fires, explosions and many more, however the insurance usually does not offer coverage to items damaged whilst moving or being moved. The coverage policy also covers a range of your personal property items in and around the mobile home. It offers coverage to items damaged whilst away from your home. It is a known thing that accidents can happen such you can mistakenly injure someone leaving you faced with a huge medical cost that you cannot handle, but if you do have this policy you are able to pay medical expenses for that person even though they do not live in your premises.
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.
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.
