We have another batch of our “Tuesday Insurance Questions”. If you have questions about insurance send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question: Are all insurance policies the same?
The answer is loudly a big shouting “NO”!!! On the basic level of the actual policy contract and how it is written companies use a similar form. The key word is similar. How does your policy wording cover things like- water backup, valuable items like your jewelry and firearms and your liability? Especially with so-called “tiered” policies the policy contract can vary drastically even within the same company.
It pays to speak with a knowledgeable agent like Crosby and Crosby to discuss specific contracts and policy coverages.
Some policies are the Motel 6 of the insurance world and some are the Ritz. Spending a $100 per night at a Motel 6 is probably a rip-off but probably is a great deal at the Ritz. The same goes with insurance. Make sure you are getting a great deal at the Ritz and not paying for bargain basement coverage. And never forget to watch for bedbugs!

Are my ATV’s covered under my homeowners insurance while they are in my garage?
This is a very common question and usually gets lumped in with dirt bikes, off-road vehicles, personal watercraft, and power boats. Your homeowners policy very specifically excludes coverage for, “Motor Vehicles or all other motorized land conveyances”.
If you vehicle is not subject to motor vehicle registration and is used for service at your residence or for the assistance of the handicapped it may be covered.
If you have a ATV or off-road vehicle such as a dirt bike or dune buggy please speak to us about coverage.
Coverage is very affordable and you do not have coverage on your homeowners policy even while in your garage.
That wraps up this “Question and Answer”. Make sure to send us your questions!
