            [blog_description] => Buying a home is a big investment, and you’d probably like to protect that investment. That’s where insurance comes into play. Maybe you live in the Midwest where tornadoes are rampant, or maybe you live in quaint suburbia where, seemingly, nothing ever goes awry. But try to get into this mindset: anything could happen. That is the most basic reason behind homeowners’ insurance, and if you don’t know how to get started, we are here to help. Here are three important questions insurance agents are often asked.

Is homeowners’ insurance mandatory?
If your home is financed by a mortgage lender, they may require some type of insurance to protect against natural disasters and unexpected situations. Additionally, if your home is paid off, you have the option of maintaining coverage or dropping your policy completely at your discretion. But from a financial standpoint, it may be wise to continue a policy for asset protection.  

What does “Personal Liability” mean?
This is a subset of an insurance plan which covers the cost of damages caused by those included under your policy. If someone decides to take legal action, this section is responsible for the expense of court processes and any judgments found against you (within your policy limits). There are various situations covered under this portion, so be sure to speak with your insurance agent about how much coverage you may need.

What is not covered by homeowners’ insurance?
Certain exclusions apply in all insurance policies. For example, if your car sustains damage while parked at your residence, this claim must be submitted under your auto policy, not your homeowners’ insurance. Also, whereas most natural disasters are covered, not all of them are included. Floods and earthquakes are generally not built into a homeowners’ insurance policy and must be purchased separately.

When it’s time to buy a home, don’t forget to safeguard your assets. If you have questions regarding homeowners’ insurance, contact your local WeInsure agent today.

If you manage employees, their safety and security should be taken into consideration at all times. For a large company, you may have a collection of expensive equipment on hand that could bring business to a halt if damaged by a disaster. But no matter the size of your organization, no one is immune to accidental injury. Here’s what you need to know about covering these under a business insurance policy.

Worker’s Compensation Insurance
If an employee slips and falls on the premises, injures themselves while lifting a heavy box, or maybe becomes ill due to exposure to harsh chemicals, what do you do? Worker’s Compensation Insurance is available to protect businesses and employees after work-related illness or injury. Benefits could include payment for lost wages, emergency and ongoing medical care, or physical therapy, to name a few. In most states, a Worker’s Compensation Insurance policy is required for a business to operate.

Commercial Property Insurance
A pipe burst in your warehouse and no one was around to hear it. Did it make a sound? Probably, but it definitely damaged some equipment and important documents during the flood. Commercial Property Insurance is essential to a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) for situations such as these. From computers and inventory to store signs and fence posts, your policy coverage can span from the inside of your building to the immediate perimeter. You developed this company from the ground up, so protecting your investments with a material-based policy may be a sensible decision.

Business Liability Insurance
Accidents happen, it’s true. But what if a customer or client is injured on your property? Does that make you liable? Business Liability Insurance—also called General Liability Insurance—covers you against claims that are made against you for injuries sustained during regular business procedures. This policy could also cover you against claims of property damage and advertising offenses such as libel or slander.

There are five major types of automotive insurance, and they’re all significant. Knowledge of the terms and conditions of your coverage may save you thousands in the long run.

Liability Insurance
When you’re responsible for an accident, Liability Insurance covers you for the cost of medical expenses from injuries sustained as well as resulting property damage. If your state has a minimum requirement for Liability Insurance, you may want to consider upping the coverage a bit. That way, you (and your wallet) are protected, and you won’t have to shell out sizeable amounts of money for claims surpassing your policy limits.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Protection
This insurance helps cover expenses associated accidents in which the other driver is responsible yet possesses no insurance—or minimal coverage—and cannot afford to pay for the full cost of the damages.

Collision Coverage
Collision Coverage is responsible for the fees associated with auto repairs or for replacement of the car itself. However, if your car is totaled, this insurance will pay the car’s value. This coverage kicks in when your vehicle collides with another object or vehicle, rolls over, or your car is hit by another car while it’s parked.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Sometimes referred to as “no-fault” insurance, PIP is coverage for the medical expenses of you, and any passengers, if you are injured in an accident. This insurance also encompasses injuries sustained as a passenger in someone else’s car, or if you’re hit as a pedestrian or while cycling.

Comprehensive Coverage
Cars can be stolen, damaged by weather, collide with an animal, or be vandalized. Luckily, all of these incidents are protected by Comprehensive Coverage. If you reside in a high-crime area or a region prone to natural disasters, this insurance may be something to consider carrying. Also, most lenders demand that you hold Comprehensive Coverage until the car is paid off.

And Why Would You Want One Agent for All Your Insurance Needs? [news_date] => 2020-06-05 15:55:00 [featured_image] => https://weinsurehosting.com/assets/news_featured/1591386730_Captive Agent Blog.jpg [news_description] =>
If you’re researching insurance options, you’ve probably heard something about captive insurance agents. But what exactly does that mean? A captive agent is simply industry-speak for someone who works for only one company. The insurance companies that advertise on national television are generally captives, and their local agents work for the corporation and only offer their policies. 

When agents are exclusive to one company, they can provide you just one quote for an insurance policy. And the only way to decrease the rate is by reducing the policy coverage. If you want to shop for additional quotes, you’ll have to go through the entire process again with another agent or two. 

You can think of it this way: A captive agent has a predetermined set of policies to draw from, and when you work with that agent, they’re fitting their policies to your needs, so there’s less ability to customize coverage. Working with a captive agent also tends to be more expensive because of their corporate structure. When it’s time to renew or service your account, remember that captive agents represent their company’s best interests.

We Insure is an independent insurance provider that’s the opposite of what captive insurance offers in several ways, but the most important differences can impact your bottom line, coverage and customer satisfaction. While captives represent one company, We Insure agents have access to multiple carriers, which means they can select the best product for their clients with more flexibility and features as well as greater value and competitive pricing. We Insure agents shop around to find policies that suit your interests — not the interests of a single insurance company.  

Because We Insure agents offer home, auto, business and other types of policies, you can work with one agent for all your insurance needs. We Insure agents aren’t captive to any one provider and aren’t limited to one set of policies. As independent agents, We Insure will compare policies from different carriers to find the right plan at the best rate for you. Captive agents cannot show you competing products that may offer better coverage and options for your particular situation. A We Insure agent’s approach is to help you tailor the coverage to give you more features and flexibility, not shoehorn you into their company’s product line.

When you work with an agent who offers a broader array of coverage options, they can better see the big picture and how it may impact your insurance needs. For example, as your assets increase due to a successful business, inheritance or promotion, you may need to raise your liability coverage on home and auto policies or add an umbrella policy. After a marriage, the newlyweds may need to combine assets or purchase riders for valuables whether it’s for one spouse’s jewelry or the other’s guitar collection.

If your agent knows you and all your insurance needs, they’re more likely to identify triggering events for additional recommended coverage and suggest the best policy to meet those requirements. This concierge approach to insurance can greatly simplify your life and help ensure appropriate protection across all stages of life.

Better value, more choice. We Insure agents can find you the best deals from top-rated carriers for: home, condo, renters, auto, motorcycle, RV, business, boat and flood insurance. Call your local We Insure agent today to discuss your options.

The recession stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike any other in United States history. Many have found themselves un- or under-employed and more circumspect about their economic future, leading them to look for ways to save money on essentials. 

During this challenging time, it’s wise to review your insurance as rates change and policies come up for renewal. Many companies are also offering rebates on auto insurance. But whether you’re shopping for a new policy or updating an existing one, make sure you’re trying to save smartly — and not in a way that’s likely to backfire down the line.

Shop Around 
There are many ways to save on insurance, but one of the best methods is simply to shop rates. Compare quotes with at least three different companies. The best and most efficient way to shop your policy is to work with an independent agent who knows your market and your individual needs. The agent can then translate that to an apples-to-apples comparison of policy types and coverage from various carriers. 

Make your decision based on price, value, the reputation of the insurance provider, and your comfort with the agent. Think about the big picture because you’ll be working with this person to help you complete future claims should they arise. The lowest price is not the best option if you’re sacrificing coverage, service or reputability. 

Bundling your insurance or sticking with one provider across multiple policies can be a strategic way to capture savings of 5 percent to 20 percent. But sometimes using separate providers might be more cost-effective. Again, the best way to find out is to comparison shop and not assume you’re getting the best deal with your current insurer. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to have an independent, knowledgeable We Insure agent that has access to top-rated carriers and some of the most competitive pricing in the industry do the legwork for you.

Evaluate Policies at Least Once a Year
Insurance premiums may increase after the policy period ends, so it’s always smart to evaluate your coverage and shop your policy to ensure you get the best rate. Most policies like homeowners and life insurance generally have one-year terms, but auto insurance usually renews every six months. In addition, many auto insurers are currently giving rebates to their customers because of the hardships from COVID-19. Be sure to check with your insurer to verify if you’re receiving a rebate, or ask for one if you aren’t.

These major life changes should trigger a re-evaluation of your insurance needs:

Additionally, if you can answer yes to any of the following five questions, you may be able to reduce the cost of your insurance premium:

1. Did your credit score improve? 
Depending on the state you live in, insurance companies may use credit-based insurance scores to predict how likely you are to have an insurance loss. They’re like regular credit scores but only use select elements of your credit history. This score is only one factor that influences your premium.

2. Did moving violations fall off your driving record? 
Good for you! Most states allow moving violations to remain on your record for up to 10 years. Safe driving over time can remove these splotches and lead to a better rate.

3. Do you qualify for a low mileage discount? 
Low mileage discounts vary by insurer, but some insurers advertise a price break of up to 20% if you drive less than 8,000 miles per year.

4. Can you reduce optional insurance on an older vehicle? 
Collision may no longer make sense on an older vehicle that you’ve paid off. A common rule of thumb is to drop collision when the cost of comprehensive and collision together is greater than 10% of your vehicle's value. But speak with your We Insure agent to see if this makes sense in your specific situation.

5. Have you made improvements to protect your home?
Adding smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, burglar alarms or deadbolts to your doors can keep you safer and decrease your insurance premium.

Proceed with Caution with These Savings Strategies
Raise your deductible to lower your premium — but only if you can afford to pay it. On things like a wind policy, for instance, a higher deductible could mean many thousands of extra dollars out of pocket after a big storm. And many folks probably have less in their emergency fund or a lower salary than before. Also, be wary of signing on with a poorly rated carrier just to save a few dollars. You may find that the savings aren’t worth the cost of poor service in the long run.

If you’re ready to save money on your home, auto, business or life insurance policies, contact your local We Insure agent. Our agents have access to top insurance carriers and specialty insurance providers and can help you get the coverage you need at competitive rates.

If you live in a hurricane-prone state, you should know that homeowners insurance doesn’t always pay for all the damage these monster storms can wreak. Depending on what state you reside in and geographic factors, like coastline proximity or location within a flood zone, you may need additional coverage to protect your property from the wind and flooding that can harm your home.

There are two types of insurance products you might need in addition to your homeowners policy to protect you: windstorm and flood insurance. With hurricane season entering its peak, it’s important to know that any new coverage you add to your policy can take approximately 30 days to go into effect. 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Atlantic 2020 season is expected to be above-normal with 13 to 19 named storms predicted. Two-thirds of homes in the US are under-insured for national disasters, but many don’t know it. For example, 80% of residents in the worst-hit areas of Hurricane Harvey in 2017 did not have flood insurance. 

Let’s repeat: Having homeowners insurance does NOT mean it will cover the wind and flood damage that follows a hurricane. You may need separate policies to cover repairs or pay the cost of rebuilding your home.

Windstorm Insurance  
In most states, standard policies cover damage from wind and hail, including hurricanes. However, some high-risk coastal states exclude windstorm coverage from homeowners insurance policies. If you live in a southern coastal community, insurers often require windstorm insurance that’s available as a rider on your current policy or as a separate policy. If the insurer doesn’t mandate the windstorm coverage, your mortgage lender may require some amount of protection. Even if your policy covers wind damage, it may only be partial coverage with a separate, significantly higher hurricane deductible than your standard deductible.

While some insurance companies no longer offer wind policies in beach areas, We Insure works with many insurers to provide this type of coverage. Additionally, a number of coastal states have beach and windstorm plans to offer coverage that’s pooled by private companies but administered by the government.

Windstorm insurance may cover damage from high winds not associated with a hurricane. And it could also cover rain damage if a wind or hail storm perforates the roof or walls of your home. Just be sure to contact your insurance agent to report any damage promptly, as there are often time limitations for filing a claim.

Flood Insurance
Floods are the most common and costly natural disaster in the U.S. If only one inch of water seeps into your home, it can cause $25,000 or more in damage. You may know that federal disaster aid provides limited assistance, but the aid is often in the form of a loan that you need to pay back. Homeowners insurance policies don’t cover floods, including water from a storm surge. Flood insurance is only available through an insurer or insurance agent participating in the National Flood Insurance Program, and We Insure partners with insurers that offer these policies.

If you own a home on property that’s in a flood zone or at high risk, your mortgage lender may require you to purchase flood insurance. That said, roughly 20% of claims come from properties not within a high-risk flood zone. If you live in a low elevation area with high exposure to storms, such as the state of Florida, flood insurance is a smart consideration even if it’s not required. 

Flood insurance can cover the structure of your home and its foundation, plumbing and electrical systems, central air and heating systems, attached bookcases, cabinets, paneling, and a detached garage. It can also provide protection for personal belongings such as clothing, furniture, electronics, curtains, some portable appliances, freezers and the foods within them. Be sure to discuss the specific coverage of your policy with your agent.

The Power of We
If you have any questions or concerns about your current hurricane coverage — or want to shop or purchase a new policy — it's best to speak to an insurance expert who is knowledgeable about insurance needs in your geographic area. Determining the right level of coverage on your own can be daunting, and We Insure wants you to rest easy during this hurricane season. Talk to a We Insure agent before the storm clouds appear on the horizon.

Are you thinking about purchasing a recreational vehicle to take your vacation on the road this fall for some socially distant fun? If you are, you’re not alone! 

The RV Industry Association reports a 170% increase in sales for May 2020 compared to 12 months prior. As our national parks have reopened, many families want to salvage lost summer holidays in a safer way — and transport kids back to college without putting them on a plane. Snowbirds, who are at an increased risk for falling sick to the coronavirus, are also looking for new ways to head south this winter. And the appeal of RVs is broadening as many young families and retirees alike consider the RV lifestyle for the very first time.

But before you drive off in your home away from home, make sure you’re properly covered. Your auto policy may offer some RV-specific insurance protection for driving-related accidents, its contents and other issues — but may not give you all the coverage you need. Homeowners policies can provide offer some protection, but it’s generally limited to when the RV is parked at your residence. RV insurance typically combines the types of coverage common to home and auto insurance policies at a level that’s commensurate to the value of the RV.  

Insurers differentiate RVs from passenger cars and SUVs because RVs are typically much larger, longer and more expensive than a standard vehicle — sometimes costing as much as a (stationary) house. The size of the vehicle can feel awkward to drive at first, and insurers anticipate a greater risk for accidents. You may find it more difficult to drive and park, especially in tight spaces like gas stations and off-road campsites. Read: Fender benders are more likely as a new RV road warrior!  

Even minor accidents like scraping a pole or denting another RV can lead to expensive repairs. Purchasing RV insurance can get you the higher limits you need to cover damages, which can be substantially more than the average auto policy provides. 

Beyond the typical dings and scrapes you might anticipate, being on the road for longer periods of time can make you more susceptible to Mother Nature, theft and a variety of other perils. Supplemental policies can cover costs your auto or homeowner insurance policy may not, like hotel or rental car reimbursement in the event of a breakdown.

One last note for those who are new to RV travel: If you’re journeying outside of the U.S. to Canada or Mexico, you may also need specific protections for taking your RV across the border. So be sure to talk to your agent about your upcoming travel plans. 

We Insure offers exceptional customer service and competitive rates on auto, motorcycle, RV and boat insurance. So, before you hit the road (or the waves) talk to one of our knowledgeable agents so you can enjoy your next adventure with the protection you need.

We all enjoy a good scare this time of year, but it shouldn’t be because you made a mistake with your insurance policy. Here are some of the ghastliest gaffes when it comes to your insurance coverage and how to avoid them.

1. Being Underinsured on Your Home 
It’s a tough time for many Americans, and while we should always look for ways to trim the fat, cutting insurance coverage to the point where you have inadequate coverage is definitely not the best option. In the event of a disaster, being underinsured could mean losing tens of thousands of dollars or more if you have to repair or replace your home. One way to objectively determine if you have enough coverage is to use a web tool like AccuCoverage to account for custom features of your home and the cost of construction in your area. Review your current policy against the report to determine if you may need to change your coverage. One important detail in a homeowner’s policy that could cost you a bundle is whether your personal belongings are covered for their current (depreciated) value or at replacement cost. 

2. Dropping Needed Coverage to Save 
Some insurance companies make it easy — perhaps too easy — to opt-in and out of coverage through their websites. It may seem quick and painless to do, but if you don’t 100% understand the policy language, you could drop necessary coverage. Always check with your We Insure agent to ensure your cost-saving measures don’t accidentally remove coverage you need. For instance, if you live in a hurricane-prone state, you may need hurricane coverage, but windstorm damages caused by the winds created by a hurricane storm are not generally included. Hurricanes and windstorms go hand in hand, so excluding windstorm coverage could become a very costly mistake!

3. Shopping Solely Based on Price 
If you’re shopping policies on price alone, you’re leaving key decision factors on the table: appropriate coverage, customer service and the reputation of the insurance company. A low price can mean many things, including limited coverage or a high premium. Determine what types of coverage you need first, and then have a We Insure agent shop carriers to give you an apples-to-apples comparison. Be sure to ask if any discounts are available. Auto insurers may offer a break for good driving behavior, and home insurers often give discounts for upgrades like a new roof or monitored alarm system. From there, you can make a final determination by reviewing the service quality and other reputation factors of the company. 

4. Not Having Flood Insurance When You’re at Risk 
Even if you don’t live in a high-risk area, most property owners should consider flood insurance. According to FEMA, during a 30-year mortgage, there’s a 25 percent chance you could experience flood conditions if your home is in a 100-year floodplain. Just one inch of flooding in your home can cost $20,000 or more in repairs! Flood zones change over time, so even if you weren’t in a flood zone when you first purchased your home, your risk may have since changed. An example of floods occurring in non-flood zone areas include the 50+-inches of rain from Hurricane Harvey in 2017, resulting in catastrophic property flooding in Texas and Louisiana.

5. Buying Bare-Bones Auto Coverage 
The adage “you get what you pay for” can especially be true when it comes to cheap auto insurance. You’d be spooked if you knew the frightening risk you’re taking if you hurt someone in an accident and face a lawsuit without adequate coverage. Even minor accidents can lead to very costly damages. And inadequate coverage may put your home and personal savings at risk. Think about that threat before picking a plan with only the state-minimum mandated coverage.

6. Forgetting to Pay Your Premium 
Whoopsies. We’ve all forgotten to pay a bill from time to time, but this is one mistake that’s completely avoidable. Set up automatic bill payment online or through your agent to take care of your insurance premium, or at least set up a recurring reminder in your calendar. Late payments can affect your credit report, and those who consistently pay late can end up paying higher insurance premiums and late fees as a result.

The Takeaway: Don’t cut and slash your insurance policies for short-term savings, especially during challenging economic times. It’s important to protect yourself from the types of disasters and worst-case scenarios that can wipe out a lifetime of savings. Take calculated but informed steps and work with a We Insure agent to guide you along the way — and save the scares for the Halloween horror movies.

November is one of the busiest times of the year for car travel as families head to grandmother’s house for turkey and trimmings. Since the holidays are wild enough with your Great-Uncle Sal, take heed of our travel preparation tips so you can deftly handle roadside breakdowns — or prevent them altogether! 

1. Don’t skip essential maintenance. This is still important, even if your car has been idle these past months. Take your vehicle in for a standard checkup at your local service center to do things such as:

• Top off fluids, including windshield wiper fluid for optimal visibility. 
• Check your headlights, brake lights and turn signals.
• Inspect your tire treads for wear and inflate tires to the recommended levels in your owner’s manual for a safer, more comfortable ride.
• Check your car battery — the exceptionally hot summer months this year may have drained it faster.
• Change your oil, if it’s due.

2. Travel with emergency supplies. You may be feeling confident that you already have jumper cables, a spare tire, jack and first aid kit in your car, but when did you last open the trunk and inspect these items? Many a weary traveler pulls out a flat spare tire or opens up the first aid kit to find essential items missing or damaged. 

Other emergency items that you’ll want to have on hand include extra water and food, a flashlight, motor oil, radiator fluid, emergency lights or flares, phone chargers/power packs and a fire extinguisher. Have an extra supply of any medicines you need to take, hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray/wipes as well as extra masks for all passengers. Depending on where you’re headed, you may also need snow supplies like an ice scraper, snow shovel and blankets.

3. Make sure you have good auto insurance coverage and roadside assistance. Before you hit the road, have your up-to-date insurance documents and registration handy — and lock in your emergency roadside assistance insurance coverage. Emergency roadside assistance generally covers towing, battery jumps, tire servicing, gas delivery and lockouts. But what if you have more serious car trouble and need to have your car towed to the nearest service center? You could be stuck somewhere between Yeehaw Junction and Miami for an overnight stay or longer while waiting on repairs. 

Fortunately, there are other insurance options that cover alternative transportation, accommodations and even a food allowance for you and your co-travelers. Road trip accident accommodations coverage is actually quite affordable, so get a quote from your local We Insure agent before your holiday travel this year.

It’s sad but true — the holiday season is prime time for theft. Protect yourself against would-be ne’er-do-wells with these holiday safety tips from We Insure.

1. Don’t broadcast travel plans. As tempting as it may be to post pictures of your family ice skating at Rockefeller Center, resist the urge. You may think you’re just sharing with friends on social media, but the internet’s call letters are www (world wide web) for a reason. Post as many pictures of your holiday adventures as you like — once you return. 

2. Don’t leave tell-tale boxes for expensive items curbside. Television boxes that get tossed to the curb let everyone know the make, model and size of your brand-new 4K TV. It’s a burglar’s dream because it signals which homes to target to score the latest electronics. Break down boxes and place them inside your bin for stealthy recycling.

3. Use programmable lights. Keep thieves guessing if you’re home with programmable lights. They may be the oldest trick in the book because they work! Set up lights in various rooms to turn on and off on a random schedule. 

4. If you’re traveling, hold the mail or have a neighbor take it in. The USPS offers a hold mail service that you can request online or in person at your local post office. Either choose to have your mail delivered upon your return or pick it up when you get back. Having a neighbor collect your mail and check in on your home is an even better solution because they can inform you of any trouble — and no one you don’t know will have the information that you’re away.

5. Never leave deliveries unattended. Arrrgh … the dreaded porch pirates! Theft of boxes left at the doorstep during work hours has sadly become commonplace. Fortunately, you can protect yourself from pirate plundering with a little pre-planning and creative thinking. Ship items to your office or to a stay-at-home neighbor. Some delivery services can send your packages to a safe place until you can pick them up. FedEx has arrangements to store Amazon deliveries in special lockers at local retailers.

6. Lock doors and keep valuables out of sight. An unlocked door is an open invitation for unwanted visitors. It goes without saying that you should always lock your doors, but even the most diligent people can let their guard down from time to time. Another tip is to tuck your laptops, iPads and other valuables away from sight. Teaching your kids these simple safety habits will prepare them for when they live on their own someday. 

7. Guard against identity theft. The holidays are a good time to check your statements twice to find out if someone naughty is stealing your identity. Review them line by line for extra charges from purchases you didn’t make. Sign up for credit alerts from one of the credit monitoring services available online.

8. Make sure you’re properly insured. Standard homeowners insurance policies cover theft of personal belongings from your home but may exclude high-ticket items like jewelry, electronics and cash. These more-expensive items are popular holiday gifts, but your current policy may limit (or exclude) reimbursement for them, so you may need to add a rider to have them covered. Your local We Insure agent will be happy to provide you with a fast and free homeowners insurance quote. And we can shop over 100 top-rated carriers to find you the best deal on the coverage you need.

Take these tips to heart this holiday season to protect your family and belongings from unfortunate events. From We Insure’s family of service providers across the United States to yours, Season’s Greetings and a happy and healthy New Year!

Every year, champagne in hand, we count down to the New Year while watching the ball drop. So, we thought this would be the perfect time to count down ten steps you can take to create a safer home in 2021. 

10. Install a Wi-Fi camera. With the advent of Wi-Fi security cameras, hard wiring is no longer necessary. This brings installation costs down considerably and makes the technology a lot more accessible for many people. Wi-Fi cameras and doorbells can record activity outside your home and send alerts to your mobile phone when motion is detected.

9. Pressure-wash walkways. Don’t let mold and mildew build up on walkways, steps, patios and other hardscapes. Excessive buildup can make these surfaces slippery and a falling hazard. Enlist professional help or rent a pressure washer at your local home store.

8. Install motion-sensitive exterior lights. Motion-sensitive lighting can deter burglars and provide added safety when navigating your property at night. They’re inexpensive and easy to install. And many models are battery-operated and don’t require hardwiring to your existing electrical system.

7. Install a carbon monoxide detector. While smoke alarms are fairly common, homeowners frequently overlook carbon monoxide detectors. But they can be life-saving should this deadly gas build up inside the home. Because these fumes are odorless, they can pose a grave danger when left undetected.

6. Install a monitored security system. Once again, Wi-Fi technology can help you avoid the necessity of hardwiring equipment in your home and lower installation costs. An added bonus: You may also get a discount on your homeowners insurance by showing proof of your security system. Contact your local We Insure agent to see if you qualify.

5. Professionally inspect your chimney. Soot and other debris can build up inside chimneys and cause a fire hazard. Have a local professional thoroughly inspect and clean it out to make sure your chimney is safe and unobstructed. 

4. Purchase fire extinguishers for your home. Place easily accessible fire extinguishers on every floor of your home and make sure everybody in the house knows how to use them properly. Fire extinguishers have different ratings for the types of fires they’re effective on. Be sure you also have a specialized one for grease fires, which are more likely to occur in the kitchen.

3. Anchor furniture to walls. About every 43 minutes, a child suffers injury in a furniture tip-over accident in the United States. Even smaller pieces, like dressers, are vulnerable to this danger. Learn how to properly anchor furniture at https://www.anchorit.gov.  

2. Keep a first-aid kit stocked and ready to use. During the pandemic, many people are hesitant to venture out — even to see a doctor. It’s especially important right now to maintain a well-stocked first-aid kit at home to treat minor injuries. But be sure, however, to seek prompt medical attention for anything serious.

1. Review basic safety habits. Keep doors and windows locked. Close blinds and draperies at night, and store valuables out of sight. And never open the door to strangers. Teach your children basic safety habits to better prepare them for when they will someday live on their own.

While these tips may not be as exciting as a ball drop in Times Square, keeping your home and family safe is certainly worth celebrating. Hopefully, you’ll never need to use your homeowners insurance. But if you do, having the right coverage with a reputable insurer that provides excellent customer service is critical. 

We Insure can help you shop for a policy that’s right for you at a price you can afford — and we’ll be there to assist you should you ever need to file a claim.

Making a mistake with your insurance can cost you. Here’s a list of common missteps that can land you (and your pocketbook) in big trouble if you’re not careful.

Underinsuring your home. As home values appreciate in your neighborhood, you may find yourself underinsured — especially after making major renovations. Insure your home for the cost to rebuild it, and not its current market value. Review your home’s value with your We Insure insurance agent on a regular basis.

Selecting an unaffordable deductible. Choosing a high deductible can save on your monthly premiums, but it’s not a good idea if you can’t afford big upfront costs when disaster strikes. Be sure you have enough money in an emergency fund to cover your maximum deductible should the need arise.

Assuming all your belongings have coverage. Basic homeowners policies routinely exclude a number of items, including jewelry, electronics, artwork, cash and collectibles. The list can vary from carrier to carrier. Review your policy with your agent to make sure you have coverage for all of your valuables. You may need to purchase an additional rider to cover some of these items.

Not shopping around. Depending on where you live, We Insure can compare prices from up to 100 top-rated carriers. This can result in substantial savings on the coverage you need. We’ll do all the legwork for you and give you an apples-to-apples competitive quote for your home, auto, business, RV, boat and other policies you need.

Buying the least expensive coverage. While there’s nothing wrong with shopping around for a good deal, if you let price be the only deciding factor, you might end up with insufficient coverage, or a policy from an insurer that’s not on solid financial footing. Customer service is an important consideration as well. Be sure to balance price with features and service when shopping for a policy.

Ignoring flood risks. Flood insurance is relatively inexpensive and covers a peril that most homeowners insurance policies exclude. Check to see if your home is in the flood zone by consulting the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Buying a bare-bones auto policy. Purchasing the minimum amount of liability insurance may put you in a bind should you ever face a lawsuit after an accident. State-mandated minimums are just that – minimums. Depending on your financial circumstances, it may be advantageous to obtain additional coverage.

Neglecting to ask about discounts. You can often save money on your premiums by documenting that you have an antitheft system in your car or monitored security in your home. You may also save by bundling homeowners and auto insurance policies with the same carrier. A We Insure agent will be happy to check for all available discounts for you.

We Insure offers competitive rates on top-rated homeowners, business, boat, and RV insurance products, among others. Our friendly and knowledgeable agents will give you a fast and free competitive quote for all your needs. All insurance is not the same, and service matters. Call your local We Insure independent agent today.

We hope the day never comes, but should you find yourself in the aftermath of a car accident, here’s what you should and shouldn’t do:

1. Check for injuries. Make sure that you, your passengers and everyone in the other party involved are okay. Call 911 for an ambulance right away if anyone is hurt.

2. Get to safety. Never leave your car in a roadway or other location where it can pose a danger to yourself or other drivers. Safely steer or push your car off the road and stand clear of traffic. Turn on your hazard lights to make your vehicle more visible to passing cars. If you have cones, flares or reflective triangles, set them up to alert oncoming vehicles.

3. Document vehicle damage. Inspect both cars for any signs of damage. Snap pictures of the position of the vehicles and any dings, dents or other damage as long as it’s safe to do so.

4. Obtain a police report. If you call the police, a law enforcement officer can come to the scene of the accident and take down statements from both drivers to include in a report. You can then request a copy to provide to your insurer.

5. Gather information. Exchange names and insurance information with the other driver. Take down the driver’s license and license plate numbers, vehicle make/model and accident location. If possible, get the names and contact information of any witnesses as well as the police officer (including his or her badge number) who took the report.

6. Decide whether to file a claim. There are many factors that go into making this important decision, such as: who is at fault, the specifics of your policy including your deductible, and the impact that a claim might have on your insurance premium. 

7. Follow up with your agent. Talk to your We Insure agent to understand your coverage and see whether a filed claim will result in a rate increase. If it does, he or she can shop around to see if there is a better deal elsewhere.

We hope you never have an accident, but if you happen to be reading this before you do, take this opportunity to review your current auto policy with an experienced We Insure agent. 

Having the knowledge and confidence that you have the right coverage is one of the best things you can do to protect yourself in the event of an accident. What you don’t want to wonder about after a fender bender is whether you have adequate coverage. 

We Insure will comparison shop the policy you need from as many as 100+ top-rated carriers depending on where you reside. 
Our agents are independent, which means their loyalty is to you and not a single carrier they represent. Their goal is to find you the best value on the coverage you need — no matter who provides it. Call your local We Insure agent today for a free consultation.

Homeowners insurance can be complex with many options and factors that determine cost. The good news is all that complexity can also offer opportunities to save. And with a We Insure agent at your side doing a little comparison shopping on your behalf, you can get the right coverage at a great value from a top-rated insurer.

Here are some tips that could score you big savings on your next premium: 

1. Raise your deductible. Your deductible is what you have to pay on a claim before your insurance kicks in. The higher your deductible, the lower your premium. While raising your deductible is one way to save, be certain that you can cover the higher out-of-pocket cost should you ever need to file a claim.

2. Bundle coverage. Bundling home and auto coverage may earn you discounts on both. Your We Insure agent can provide you with a fast and free quote for bundling with one of your existing insurers — and find out if you could save more by moving both policies to a new carrier altogether. 

3. Check for discounts. If you have a monitored home security system, you could see a reduction on your next premium. And if you’ve made other improvements, such as replacing your roof or installing hurricane windows, those may also lower your costs. Talk to your We Insure agent to learn more.

4. Improve your credit. Insurers can charge you more if your credit is less than stellar. But a little credit remediation that raises your FICO score could lower your premium. The first step is obtaining a copy of your credit report from all three bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You’re entitled to one free report per year from each, and you can request them at annualcreditreport.com.

5. Go paperless. Save the trees and some money while you’re at it. Some insurers offer discounts to encourage customers to switch over to paperless billing. If you’re good with receiving electronic statements, see if you can nab a discount in return.

6. Don’t over-insure. When it comes to insurance, more isn’t always better. And while you never want to be underinsured, over-insuring your home and belongings can be wasteful. Don’t take out riders you don’t need — and purchase only necessary coverage. For example, a home’s replacement cost (the cost to bring your home back to its original condition) may be significantly less than its market value. Insuring your home for its market value may be unnecessary in this instance. On the other hand, electing for coverage for the depreciated value of the contents of your home won’t allow you to replace old items with new.

7. Shop around. Tweaking the coverage of your existing policy to save money may not provide nearly the cost savings you could achieve by shopping your coverage with other insurers. A We Insure agent will be happy to provide a complimentary quote based on an apples-to-apples comparison with top-rated carriers in your area.

We Insure agents aren’t loyal to one insurer. Their loyalty is to you — and finding you the best possible deal on the homeowners insurance you need. Call your local agent for a fast and free quote today.

If there’s anything the last year has shown us, it’s the importance of a financial safety net. The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on the personal finances of many Americans. And although nothing outweighs the loss of life, devastating financial circumstances create hardships all their own. While 2020 and 2021 are unique in terms of the pandemic’s global impact, the truth is financial emergencies affect many individuals at some point or another. Having a financial safety net in place is critical to weathering the storm whenever it occurs.

Here are three foundational elements to a financial safety net, which can help buffer the impact of hardships such as a job loss, health crisis and property loss or damage.

1. Establish an emergency fund.
It’s important to have sufficient funds set aside in a safe, highly liquid savings vehicle, such as an FDIC-insured savings account (higher-yield options are often available online) or short-term certificate of deposit (CD) to cover expenses in the event of an emergency. Shoot for a minimum of 3-to-6 months’ worth to start. Some advisers suggest trying to grow this to a year’s worth of expenses over time. This may seem like a daunting task, but don’t let this dissuade you from starting. Cutting back on nonessential spending, picking up a side hustle or even selling items can help jumpstart your emergency fund efforts.

2. Obtain adequate insurance protection.
Don’t wait for an emergency to strike before becoming familiar with the details of your insurance. There are a number of policies available to help protect your finances in an emergency. Most people have homeowners and auto insurance, but many do not fully understand their coverage. This is why it’s important to review all your policies with a knowledgeable agent to ensure you have adequate protection. 

You should also consider life insurance to protect against the loss of a primary breadwinner’s income, disability insurance if sufficient coverage is unavailable through your employer, long-term-care insurance to offset the cost of care as you age and an umbrella policy for additional protections. Speak to your local We Insure agent for a complimentary review of your current policies, no matter who the provider is. Your agent will be happy to give you a free, competitive quote to make sure you get the right coverage at the best price.

3. Plan ahead for retirement.
The timing of a financial hardship can be a significant factor in terms of its impact on your personal finances. When a setback occurs close to retirement, especially when retirement savings are not where they should be, this can force you to continue working longer than planned. The closer you are to retirement, the more important it is to have a safety net in place because you’ll have fewer working years left to recoup lost wages or rebuild depleted savings. Work with a qualified financial advisor to make sure you’re contributing regularly and sufficiently toward your retirement. That way, you’ll be in a better position to weather any hardships — no matter when they come.

Getting Started
If you don’t already have a safety net in place, don’t panic. Start saving what you can afford to each month. Fortunately, not every financial challenge is a major one, and even small amounts set aside can help you pay an unexpected repair bill without adding to credit card debt. And it costs nothing to have your insurance reviewed by a We Insure agent. In fact, you may end up saving money — and being better prepared for whatever the future holds.

We Insure means business. And we love to help businesses build a firm foundation for success by providing them with the insurance protection they need. All business owners have one thing in common, no matter what they sell; they need to assemble a solid team that they can count on to advise them on all aspects of their operations, including: legal, financial and accounting, IT, sales, marketing — and insurance. 

At We Insure, we take our responsibility to business owners seriously, and we make it our business to get to know your business so we can find coverage that’s tailored to your needs at an affordable price. We Insure provides commercial property, liability, auto, business interruption and other policies to help mitigate business risks and protect your bottom line.

Business Owners Policies: We Insure offers many business policies separately as well as conveniently bundled and affordably priced in a Business Owners Policy (BOP)

Commercial General Liability: can include coverage for products, operations and premises, including property damage (rented or owned), personal injury and medical expenses as well as advertising injury.

Business Vehicle: may include comprehensive and collision, liability, medical payments, coverage for use of employee and leased vehicles, uninsured/underinsured motorist, roadside assistance, gap coverage and loss of income.

Commercial Property: can include coverage for owned or leased buildings, property on job sites, warehouses and contents, fire, storm, burst water pipes, equipment, computers and other electronics, as well as money and securities used in your business if they are stolen, destroyed or lost.

Business Interruption: can cover losses in the event of damaged equipment, vandalism, fire, hail or windstorm and certain forced closures. These policies can reimburse lost net income and continuing business expenses like rent, mortgage, advertising, salaries and taxes.  

Commercial Umbrella: extends liability coverages provided by other underlying policies, such as property or auto insurance, and can help pay certain expenses if you’re liable for damages that exceed the underlying policy limits. 

Workers’ Compensation: provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees who become sick or injured on the job and help pay medical bills, rehab, lost wages and other benefits. Many businesses are mandated by law to provide this coverage.

Whether Your Business is Large or Small — We’re Here to Help
There are many risks business owners face, but We Insure can help you find the right blend of coverage to meet your company’s needs. And we’ll be there to answer your questions and — should you ever need to — file a claim. 

If you’re starting a business, we’d be happy to walk you through the coverage options available to you. And if you have an existing business policy, we’ll shop around to make sure you’re getting the best coverage at the most competitive price. Contact your local We Insure agent today for all your business insurance needs.

*Individual coverage for various business policies may vary. Your agent can review the specific details of your policy, including its limits and any exceptions.
