Umbrella Policy – Insurance Philadelphia, Freedom Insurance Group, Inc

by Anita on November 20, 2015

One question insurance agents frequently are asked is “How do I know if I need an umbrella policy?” We advise our customers to look at their whole financial situation and their lifestyle. Do you own a swimming pool? Own a dog? Have large assets to protect? Agents typically recommend that customers have enough home insurance coverage equal to their assets. Umbrella policies cover liability, personal injury coverage and legal expense coverage. Umbrella polices are there to protect you against large lawsuits. There are certain parameters that must be met to get an umbrella policy. First you must carry your auto and homeowners insurance with the same company. Second you must acquire the highest limits available for auto insurance and home insurance. The maximum amount of coverage you can have under an umbrella policy varies by state. This protection can extend beyond your auto and home. It can also cover your RV, boat, snow mobiles, golf carts, ATV’s, jet skis and motorcycles. There are some added protections with an umbrella policy that are generally excluded from homeowners insurance polices. These policies can run approximately $300-$400 a year for a million dollars coverage. That is relatively inexpensive for extra coverage.The best part is that everyone in the household is covered as long as they are listed on the auto policy and live in the home.  Something to think about if you have teen drivers in the home.

The best thing to do is to speak to a licensed agent who can discuss your risk and assets. There are certain situations which will increase your need for an umbrella policy.  Call us at 215-673-0300 so we can discuss your current auto and homeowners insurance in Philadelphia, we can evaluate if you have enough coverage and if you should also look into getting an umbrella policy.  You can also visit our website at www.freedom4insurance.com click on all coverages to read about umbrella policies.

Winterizing your automobile in Philadelphia

by Anita on November 16, 2015

It’s that time of year where there is frost appearing on the windshield of your auto when we wake up. We all have begun our home winterizing and taking the steps to make sure our home is ready for the winter. Have we done the same for our automobiles?  The change of seasons is a great time to remember to get the oil in our automobiles changed. It is a good idea to check in the glove compartment and make sure you have your current auto ID cards, a flashlight, pen, paper and tissues. Tire pressure on your automobiles tires should also be checked to ensure proper inflation. A set of jumper cables is also helpful not just for your car but also for someone who may be in need of a battery charge. You can be extra prepared and store a blanket, some water bottles and non-perishable snacks in the trunk along with an ice scraper and kitty litter in the event you lose traction driving your auto. Take a little extra time to allow your auto to warm up properly especially in the chilly Philadelphia area.  Schedule an appointment with your auto mechanic for an auto tune-up to ensure your auto is winter ready.   Ashbrook Frost on Car

by Anita on November 3, 2015

Daylight saving time is upon us. Now is the time to assess what you need to do to winterize your home. Do you need to clean your gutters, caulk your windows and door frames? A quick trip to the home store to pick up new batteries for those fire/carbon monoxide detectors some insulation and caulk will put your mind at ease by reducing the risks in your home and reduce your worries.  Schedule an appointment to clean the fireplace and chimney so you can safely burn and have those cozy winter nights without a worry. Checking dyer vents and heating vents for debris will also make your home more energy efficient.

A little maintenance now goes a long way later for your home. Some routine tender loving care can avoid future disasters and homeowners insurance claims. Winters in Philadelphia can be pretty brutal and can really take a toll on your home. Many times we are forced to put a claim in with our home insurance company in order to pay for damages from we sustain from bad winter and fall seasons in Philadelphia. We hope this post can help avoid that unfortunate situation.

Back to school with lower Car Insurance – Philadelphia

by Anita on August 27, 2015

It’s that time. Kids are going back to school. Most people think about books, pencils, back packs, school clothes, new sneakers and haircuts. But you may want to add insurance to the list. If you still have high school students in the house who drive or will soon be getting their license, remind them that good grades equal lower car insurance rates. Many insurance companies offer the good student discount which is for earning a B or better. You must provide your insurance agent with a copy of the last report card as verification. Cheaper car insurance is just another incentive to do well in school.

If you are sending your kid off to college for the first time most likely they will not have a vehicle on campus and will be living in a dorm. Is your son/daughter living away at school 100 miles or more? If the answer is yes, then you may qualify for a discount on your auto insurance. If you have a junior or senior in college they may have a car at school with them and living off campus.  If they have a vehicle at school with them, remember to provide your agent with the address where they are in school. The agent can then split rate the vehicle so that all cars are rated at their respective addresses. This is important for your auto insurance policy. When you are renting a house or apartment your contents are not covered under the landlord’s insurance policy, therefore you may want to think about renter’s insurance. Many students bring TV’s, laptops, game systems and personal belongings with them. Renters insurance may insure these items in a covered loss.  Keep your college student in the loop when it comes to insurance. This way when they are ready to purchase their own auto and renters insurance policy they will know what to do.  These are beneficial life lessons for your kids.
