It was August and the “insurance agent” in me was anxious. Hurricane Irene was headed directly toward Hampton Roads. I walked around my yard slowly. Taking in the huge Pines that I loved so dearly. What was in store for them? Being a bit of a “tree hugger” I silently thanked them and sent up a little prayer that they would survive the high winds. I gathered up items and stood looking at my home. I reviewed our insurance in my mind. My deductible for hurricane was over $3000. We were not a high risk for flooding, but the nagging thought was still there. And, what about my policyholders? How would they weather this storm? Would they be safe? Would they be able to reach me if they needed me?
When Chris asked me to write this Blog I had no problem coming up with a topic. Irene was a hurricane. The week before we’d had an earthquake. A few times a year we can expect a Nor’ Easter, and for crying out loud tonight we’re looking at 26 pieces of Satellite falling from the sky. THE INSURANCE REVIEW is the most important part of what I do as an insurance agent. I let people know what their policy will cover and just as important, what it won’t cover. I knew my deductible, but there were thousands of our Hampton Roads neighbors who didn’t find out until the storm was knocking on their door.
Contact your agent today and schedule that review. Of course if you prefer, please feel free to call me and I’ll be happy to review your coverage with you.
