How could you obtain mobile home insurance? Virtually there are three possible ways for you to obtain this kind of insurance. Starting with the most convenient of them all, and that would be to search for them over the internet. Various companies use the advantages of the web to attract customers. Another way is via the telephone. It is also a convenient practice but most people are not convinced with this method. Direct to the agent, perhaps this is most widely practiced method. Most of us would prefer to this as the last method due to the fact that they could ask for clarifications towards the agent, in matters they do not understand.
Mobile Home Insurance Coverage. Mobile home insurance covers more than just your mobile home. It also covers your personal property and protects you from liability lawsuits. Here's what Texas mobile home insurance covers: Your mobile home - Mobile home insurance reimburses you for any damage done to your mobile home caused by fire, smoke, water leaks, explosions, vandalism, or natural disasters. It will also replace your mobile home if it's been destroyed. Basic mobile home policies do not cover damage caused by floods, so if you live in a flood-prone area you will need to purchase flood insurance.
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.
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.
