Florida homeowners insurance premiums are higher than almost every other state. You can see how it compares to average national insurance costs here. That’s because the state is exposed to catastrophic storms on a yearly basis, and those storms are getting stronger and more frequent.
Prepared Insurance Company’s average yearly premium is $1,779 a year for a $300,000 newly built home. Ours is $1,354 a year, about is 31 percent cheaper.
Average prices may not reflect your home’s actual premium, which may be higher or lower depending on your home’s location, square footage, construction, and claims history. Plus, hurricane insurance is part of every Kin homeowners policy.
How a company handles claims speaks volumes. It’s the reason folks even have insurance – so they are protected in a claim.
Prepared Insurance reviews don’t mention many claims – most are focused on underwriting and service.
We can speak to our claims philosophy, though. We are easy to reach and ready to provide or find an answer to your questions. We check in with policyholders after a major disaster, even if they haven’t experienced a loss. If they have, we can get a jumpstart on processing the damage.
We rely on technology to streamline claims. Often, we can inspect damage before we can get boots on the ground and are able to process claims faster because of it.
Lastly, we created our Managed Repair Network to help homeowners get repairs done quickly and professionally. When you opt in for this protection, we help connect you with licensed, insured, and local contractors who specialize in the work you need done.
If you are looking for an insurance company that cares, give us a call and see what we’re about.
