If you ever are unfortunate enough to experience a disaster in Burlingame, CA, you want to feel comfort from knowing your possessions were at least covered by insurance. At Commercial One Insurance Service, we try to make sure our clients get the right coverage to suit their personal needs.
That means understanding what kinds of situations and items are excluded from their policies. Everyone has a different situation, so a policy should be individually tailored.
Exclusions by situation
A homeowners policy will list the kinds of cases where coverage is available. The most common are disasters like fire or burglary, and may also include tornado or wind damage.
Water damage is usually not covered. If you feel like you want additional coverage beyond that listed in your policy, talk to your agent.
What specifically is covered
Subject to your deductible and policy limits, a wide range of your personal possessions are covered under your homeowner’s insurance.
- Large appliances, like your furnace, may be covered by a home warranty instead. Small appliances, like toasters and microwaves, will fall under your homeowner’s policy. Your policy will also cover electronics, including televisions and computers. Furniture is also included.
- Personal possessions are included, such as clothing, books, and jewelry. There are probably limits on the value of the jewelry, so if your jewelry is valuable, you may need additional coverage.
- Homeowners insurance may cover some items you are storing on your property, like boats during the winter. Again, these are subject to certain limits, so you probably need boat insurance too.
If you have any questions about your coverage in Burlingame, CA, or if you feel like you could use greater protection, please call Commercial One Insurance Service, and we will be happy to help.
