When confronted with the choice, choose a Replacement Policy. Though this type of policy is significantly more expensive, you will not receive less than what it will cost to repair damage in the event of a claim, only less your deductible. Consider it a forced savings account. This policy is more common with site-built homes or mobile homes that are on property that you may own instead of rent/lease. What does a mobile home insurance claim cover? A typical insurance claim that was caused by a broken water pipe would cover the damage to the home and your property as a result from water damage. The repair to the pipe would not be covered because it is considered home maintenance. This repair would be paid for by the home owner. Another example of what a claim may or may not cover is a leaky pipe. Any damage that would result from the leaking pipe would NOT be covered. Insurance companies only cover sudden and accidental occurrences. Items that are "leaking" are considered lack of maintenance and fall under the home owner's responsibility.
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.
Your mobile home has to be described fully to get an accurate quote. The quote service needs to know where your mobile home is presently located. This includes mobile home park and lot number. The address should be given along with information about where the mobile home is located in relation to a city or town. Then come the most important facts. Whether you own and live in your home will be discussed. The model year, manufacturer, date it was bought, and how much you paid are all included. It is also a factor if your mobile home is not tied down. All information about your current mobile home policy is purely optional. The service will ask about your insurance company, the amounts you are covered for, and your deductibles. They will also want to know how much and how often you pay your insurance. It is all designed to make their selling job easier. Getting a mobile home insurance quote from an internet source can be scary. You do not know the people you are dealing with and you do not know if you can trust them. Just remember that you are just exploring your options. You are under no obligations to do anything.
A good manufactured home insurance policy will offer protection on your personal possessions. Take a complete inventory of all your personal items. Include pictures of each item. Keep this list, as well as the pictures in a secure place that is not in your home, such as a safety deposit box. If your home is destroyed, you will need this list and pictures as proof of your personal possessions to get compensation. You could trust your insurance agent with it, but it is better to keep a safe copy for yourself. This may seem unnecessary to some, but if you ever have a serious claim situation you will be thankful that you took a few minutes and followed this step.
