Tell us about any other assets you want covered!

Renters insurance protects your property and assets from anything bad that can happen to the property you rent.

Do I need a home inventory for home or renters insurance in the case of a claim?

It is not required but if you are going to make a claim the insurance company isn’t going to just cut you a check.  They will want a detailed list of what was taken and cost to replace?? It.  A home inventory is the best way to provide this.  Use our Encircle App!

 

Why is my house insured for so much?

We have to insure your home for replacement value not assessed or market value.  Replacement value takes into consideration other costs that could be incurred to rebuild your home such as demolition, debris removal, building codes, etc.

 

My child just moved to college, what do I do next?

Contact us to discuss the specifics.  This may involve additional endorsements or even maybe some discounts.

 

I just got engaged  Can you insure my ring or do I need to find other insurance to cover it?

We can insure your ring!  This is added to your homeowners or renters policy. We typically need an appraisal to add it.

 

Why do I need renters insurance?

To protect your personal property and your personal liability!

 

Who do I call when I have a claim to report? What if that claim is not during your business hours?

Call your agent at our office.  If you are calling after hours and have a claim emergency, you will be given an after-hours emergency claim phone number to call.

 

Does your policy come with an agent/customer service rep?

At abel insurance – your policy does!

 

What is the recommended age for my child to put his/her car ins under their own name/have their own policy?

There really isn’t a set age.  This is an item of discussion with your agent.

 

If I was involved in a hit and run accident, will my insurance rate raise if I file a claim to get my vehicle fixed even though it wasn’t my fault?

Some companies may raise your rate depending upon the amount of damages.

 

What is the procedure when I have a claim?

We report the claim to the carrier after notification from you.  A representative from your insurance company should be in contact with you in 24 to 48 business hours.  If not, please contact us.  During this time you should start determining what your damage is or value of any damaged property.  Stay in touch with us if you have any questions.

“No one could ask for better service! I’ve told others to come to you for insurance as I know the service is the very best and they would be treated fairly.”
