Whether you have owned a mobile home insurance policy before, currently, or are thinking about purchasing one, there are a few things to keep in mind. Some people think that because a mobile home is cheaper to buy, they do not need to spend the money on an insurance policy to protect their interest. This could not be further from the truth. The common misconception is that most insurance companies do not cover mobile homes. There are a few that do not, but most offer policies or refer you to a company that can issue a policy. The big nationwide insurance companies do offer policies to mobile home owners. Some smaller local insurance companies may have difficulty in such a small market.
If there is an accident involving a mobile home and someone got injured or suffers property damage arising from negligence on the part of the mobile homeowner, liability protection takes care of the medical and hospital bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It also pays the money needed for legal representation. This comes in if the injured person sues and legal charges are incurred. For people that are looking for how to get maximum coverage for their mobile homes, other protection plans are also available. The plans include: Additional living costs, debris removal and clean up, earthquake coverage, emergency repairs and food spoilage/waste. There is also mobile trip coverage which becomes active during movements; water backup coverage takes care of damage arising from out-flowing sewers or drainage ducts; and replacement cost coverage, which totally pays off the mobile home if there is total loss.
The online service that offers to make the quote will need three kinds of information from you. They will need to know your personal information. The information about your mobile home will be important. Finally, the service will want to know about any policies you have on your mobile home at present. Insurance quote services cannot do their jobs without your personal information. Your first and last names are required, obviously. Because the quote is done on the internet, your email address will be necessary as well. The company will want your mailing address in case an insurance sale can be made. Your date of birth may or may not be required. It is always requested, but often it is up to you whether you fill in that square. They will want your phone number. The company will give you the choice of whether you want them to contact them about the rates quoted.
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.
