Mobile Home Insurance Explained
There are so many aspects of coverage to a mobile home insurance policy. Mobile home insurance is similar to that of homeowner’s insurance but reflects differences unique to the aspects of a mobile home. Your mobile home insurance will cover the damage to your home from any risks outlined in your policy to ensure that you’re able to get back to normal as quickly as possible. A few of the risks discussed in a policy include fire, water damage, wind, theft, and vandalism.
And that’s just the beginning. We have access to all the best mobile home insurance products in Canada, so no matter what additional protection you need, we’re sure to have a solution for you!
Like any home, the value of your belongings will add up faster than you think. Calculating the cost of replacing these items is important, particularly if you own higher-value items than the limits available on your policy. High-end bicycles, jewellery, and electronics can add up quickly and may require additional coverage if they are beyond your policy limits. Be sure to talk to us about options for insuring these items.
Like any homeowner, you want to put your personal touch on the look of your home. Many mobile homeowners will add decking, gazebos, even storage sheds or small garages to their homes. This, combined with skirting costs, will eventually need to be factored into the replacement cost of your mobile home.
This coverage provides financial protection for any damages or injuries you might cause to others, and its most significant benefit is that it follows you everywhere. As you likely purchased your mobile home in part due to the flexibility it offers. Liability coverage will provide you the same flexibility. If you’re traveling and cause accidental damage to a hotel room, your liability coverage will kick in.
Your insurance will cover the cost of disconnecting power, water lines, and towing or other transportation to get your place out of the literal line of fire. Since your home has the benefit of built-in wheels, it can be removed from harms way!
