What Jacksonville Mobile Home Insurance Covers
Not all mobile home insurance policies are the same. In fact, we developed our own policy to make sure mobile homeowners get affordable coverage that doesn’t cut corners. It includes:
- Replacement cost dwelling coverage: Replaces your mobile home in the event of a total loss (repairs it if partially damaged).
- Other structures coverage: Repairs or replaces other structures on your property, such as sheds or pergolas.
- Personal property coverage: Replaces your belongings when they’re lost, damaged, or stolen.
- Loss of use coverage: Pays for additional expenses when a claim forces you to temporarily relocate (think: hotel stays, eating out, and commuting).
- Personal liability coverage: Pays for legal expenses when you’re sued over bodily injuries or property damage.
- Medical payments coverage: Pays for a visitor’s minor medical bills in the hopes of deterring a lawsuit down the road.
Your policy covers common types of loss, including fire, theft, and vandalism. It also includes hurricane insurance to pay for losses caused by hurricane winds.
You can also add flood insurance to your policy to help pay for damage to your property caused by storm surges that accompany hurricanes. If you live in an area prone to sinkholes, you can add on sinkhole coverage, too.
It’s easy to customize your policy online – and we can always walk you through it.
