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.
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.
