09 May Prepare for Hurricane Season with a Review of your Home, Life and Car Insurance in Lake Worth, FL
The National Weather Service is urging you to include an “Insurance Checkup” in your preparations for hurricane season, which begins June 1. It doesn’t matter if you live inland or by the coast, if you’re a renter or a homeowner, you’ll want to make sure the things that matter to you are covered. You’ll find the help you need here at B&B Insurance in Lake Worth, Florida, with auto insurance as well as life and home owner’s insurance.
Here are a few of the many things you may want to consider:
- You might not have needed flood insurance in the past, but the flood zone boundaries in Palm Beach County were redrawn not long ago. We’ll check to see if your home or apartment is now in a flood zone. If you think you can wait and get flood insurance if a storm looks like it’s heading this way, you’ll be disappointed. It takes 30 days for flood insurance to go into effect.
- What about your car? Do you know if it will be covered if its damaged by flood water or damaged by flying or falling debris during a hurricane or tropical storm? We are proud of our reputation as one of the most trusted car insurance agencies in The Palm Beaches and we’ll be happy to look over your policy and give you the answers you need.
- Does your homeowners insurance offer you adequate coverage? When was the policy written? Has your situation changed since then? Have you done any home renovations? Have you acquired something that might need a special rider – like jewelry, art or rare coins? Has the value of the contents of your home increased since the policy was written? Whether you live in Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth or Lantana, insurance specialists at B&B will go over everything with you so you can have peace of mind if a storm threatens.
- Do you have other property or vehicles that need to be insured? We can help you with boat insurance and motorcycle insurance as well as homeowners and car insurance in our Lake Worth, FL office.
As the National Weather Service notes, you’ll want to know where your insurance documents and other important papers are. If you need to evacuate, you won’t want to be frantically searching your home for them! And, if you do evacuate, be sure to take your insurance documents with you. If you are riding out the storm at home, you might want to place your important documents in a watertight storage bag. If you have any other questions – whether they are pertaining to the upcoming hurricane season or to requirements for Florida auto insurance – we hope you’ll remember that we’re here to help.
